Laura S. Kastner, Ph.D., is a clinical associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the University of Washington. A psychologist and mother of two, she writes and lectures widely on adolescence and family behavior. She and Jennifer Wyatt, Ph.D., are the co-authors of three books, including Getting to Calm: Cool-headed Strategies for Parenting Tweens and Teens; The Launching Years: Strategies for Parenting Senior Year to College Life; and The Seven Year Stretch: How families Work Together to Grow Through Adolescence.
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.
Getting to Calm tells parents what to expect, and helps us formulate a plan for dealing with most of it while keeping our relationship with our teens intact.
