"Understanding your Teen" was especially useful to me.

Format: Paperback
When you finish reading this book, your own home will be super organized and set up to run efficiently, family members will be cheerfully interacting with each other, mutual respect and love for each other will color all your days, and helping is never an issue. Anson knows and respects the uniqueness of every child and shows you how to work with that uniqueness to inspire the confidence each child needs to succeed in life. She provides age-related charts of what to expect, concrete directions on how to train and encourage, all the while maintaining the all-important respect for opinions and contributions. For instance, instead of just saying "clean your room," tell them what that means and exactly how to clean, step by step. No open-ended directives but understandable perimeters. Organize closets so things can be put away easily. Be a role model: kids do as you do not as you say. If your room's a mess, their's will be too. This book is chock full of everything you need to know, with easy to follow instructions with minute details that will encourage you to help out at home yourself. Children love to please and your job is to encourage that. Thank you, Elva Anson, for this valuable contribution to our culture. If people complain about how kids are these days, it can only be because they haven't utilized the knowledge presented here.

Elva Anson has written an outstanding book here. As a family therapist for over 15 years, Anson has distilled many of the "trade secrets" that therapists teach their clients. If you're a parent, you can pay someone like me $125+ per hour to teach you these skills...or you can read Anson's book.

Ms. Anson focuses on important points like

* How we keep kids dependent

* Support must precede a challenge (VERY important)

* Encouragement is the key to growth

and most important of all....

that home is the classroom for learning life skills.

As a professional counselor, I highly recommend this book.

Do you struggle to get your children to clean their rooms and help with family chores? If both you and your children are frustrated after these battles, read this book and apply the principles described by this author. As a marriage family therapist and former school teacher, Anson offers both concrete education and insightful personal tips to improve communications and relationships between parents and their children.

"Understanding your Teen" was especially useful to me. This is a MUST READ for parents with teens. Everything changes as teens struggle to define their independence. This step is critical for rearing a capable, responsible adult-but how can parents respond in a healthy way?

If you care about your children and the world we leave them, read this book and rear responsible, respectful, loving children.
