"Our youth love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for their elders and love chatter in place of exercise; they no longer rise when elders enter the room; they contradict their parents, chatter before company; gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers.”
And that was a whole 21 centuries ago!
Intergenerational conflict can be traced way back into the early years of human existence, and although youth of every generation may seem worse, don’t worry because you are not alone! The best thing we can do at any age to build a better, healthier relationships is to learn to understand, and this is exact reason why ‘You Shut Up!’ was written.
Eva-Maria shares:"As a teenager at the time, at just 17 years old, I wanted to give adults precious insight and let them into the secret world of teenagers, show real life examples of what teenagers really do and think, and by doing so, offering proven techniques and tips about how other generations in this world can relate, understand and apply this knowledge to building better relationships with youth who are inevitably the next in line to rule the world in only a few years time!"
Other teenagers find Eva-Maria's findings relevant and accurate...
Eva’s always been the person I can just come to and be myself. She got me through a lot of stuff in my life and has always been a mentor and inspiration to me since we met.
She’s kind and not judgemental which makes her always easy to talk to.
She got me through my parents’ divorce, mates’ deaths and most importantly got me back on my feet after I got out of juvi when we met, when there was no one around to support me. Anyone who listens to her valuable thoughts is lucky beyond reason. She literally changes lives; she hard out changed mine... and she’s younger than me!

It is difficult to explain people like Eva, because everything about them seems to be so perfect. Her friendliness and just the fact that she is always around to confide in, meant that many times I was able to share my news, ideas and stories with someone who is compelled to listen. Alexander K, 17 years old, Sydney
Eva is probably the most kind and empathetic person I know. She is always there with support for any situation. She knows how to have fun and is always ready to make someone else feel better. Eva is a genuinely good person with a contagious good humour that makes confiding in her easy and trustworthy.

Eva has an extremely outgoing personality and an amazing amount of energy. She has the ability to get along with everyone and anyone around. No one I know dislikes or doesn’t get along with her, she always finds ways to cheer people up and she always cares. Eva is able to mentor people about anything and is able to help people during any situation.

Eva-Maria has been brought up with great values - she honours and respects her family, friends and peers. Her optimistic-realist attitude towards life exemplifies that we should always look on the positive side of reality and after talking to her explain herself you will feel like you have just caught yet another contagious virus - but this one makes you jump for joy and appreciate everything that you have.

And as you may be asking right about now ‘well what’s in it for Eva-Maria’, I will very openly tell you: yes, there is a selfish aspect to this for me - in only a few years time, my peers will be running the world, and it’s up to the adults around us, the relationships we have them, and the things they can pass onto us through a positive relationship will form how the world will be run by my generation. The ‘What’s in it for Me’ factor for me personally, that if you just take this one step towards a better relationship and read this book, it will give me more hope that the future for the world, you, your teenager and me is going to be one hell of a good one!"
