I would recommend this book to all parents of teenagers.
This book is a very practical resource for parents of young children who are preparing for the "tween" years and also for those with "tween" or teen children.
Current research on teen brain development, how good kids can make bad decisions and most importantly how to respond effectively as a calm parent.
Many writers tell you what to do and what not to do, but they don't show you what that looks/sounds like. This one does. It is full of wisdom. Read morePublished 2 months ago by anonymous
