Sherril Jaffe takes you inside a household turned upside down by that sullen, foul-mouthed, impossible, and beloved creature - the teenager. Jaffe is powerless to keep her daughter Rebekah from running away, breaking curfew, and treating both her and her husband, a rabbi, with contempt. A younger daughter, Beanie, conspires with her sister to thwart her parents, stealing their money, lying to them, and dyeing her hair purple just before her bat mitzvah.

Jaffe admits her confusions - the wild swings between permissiveness and discipline, between siding with teenage rebellion and crackdown - yet still questions the conventional wisdom of parenting experts. By turns comical, hysterical, and deadly serious, Sherril Jaffe has created a page turner from the ordinary material of real life. Ground Rules will give heart to anyone raising a teenager and remind those who have forgotten what it was like to be one.
