He has been working with teenagers and their families since 1983 helping them with all issues teen-related.

His work is about assisting others to imagine and create their greatest vision of themselves. It is about individuals reaching their highest potential and about families and communities coming together to support one another. In addition to his private practice, John speaks to parents around the country helping them to survive and thrive their children's adolescence.
"This book made me laugh out loud. It made me cry. It made me think. More than anything else, this book made me hopeful; that is, filled with hope for my relationship with my teenager, as well as for the future of parents and adolescents alike." Christopher Kranz, High School Counselor "John Davis takes his understanding of adolescent development and maps it onto some of the most common and troubling parenting dilemmas. The result is a humorous, comprehensive, and very practical guide to parenting a teen." Michael R. Freedman, Ph.D., Univ. of Colorado Health Sciences Center "Next time your teenager is driving you crazy, grab this book. There's no psychobabble here: Davis' advice is insightful, accessible and, best of all, witty and entertaining. You'll realize that maybe these years aren't quite as difficult as they sometimes seem. In fact, you might even be inspired to enjoy them! Mary Hickey, Editor, Parents Magazine.
