He has written two bestselling books on parenting adolescents; Surviving Year 12 and Adolescence: A Guide for Parents. He is also a columnist for Girlfriend, Family Circle and Australian Doctor magazines. He has won many awards for his work.

From AudioFile:

Calling this a "concise guide to surviving daily life with adolescents," the author, an authority on teenagers, provides an information-packed audio. His broad perspective will empower parents by encouraging them to stand back from the conflicts and negativity of raising teenagers and realize they're not alone. With insightful quotations and findings from developmental psychology, he encourages one to believe that the issues can be grasped and that one can prevent one's teenagers from being murdered, committed involuntarily, or sent to prison. The charming Richard Aspel is a reassuring narrator who is calming and steadying. He seems to understand the parent's dilemma as well as he does the author's ideas and scholarship. This outstanding parenting audio, full of hope and encouragement, transcends the genre. T.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
