This is an incredibe book. I wish I had read it sooner. Cline explains the necessity of consistency. He discusses the danger of rescuing teens and how doing so threatens their maturity. The book discuses a variey of parenting styles with the pros and cons of each. Part 3, called Parenting Pearls was my favorite part. Practical solutions are offered for issues such as back talk, driving, curfews, dating, parties, internet, grades, money, music, and jobs, just to name a few.

I recommend this book to anyone wih teens (its never too late) and preteens. You won't be sorry.

I have a very independent 14 year old daughter who does not respond well to being told what to do. Using love and logic strategies works really well with her. If I ask her what her plan is for homework tonight, she gives me a reasonable plan and does it, which is much better than yelling at her all night long to get it done. This works in a lot of different situations. For example if I ask her what the consequence should be (before hand) if she doesn't get her room cleaned when she says she will, there is a lot less arguing about doing her room or about the consequences if she does not get her room clean.

I felt that many of the principles in the book are solid; however, I wish I had known about the conservative Christian bias before going into the book. I really struggled to relate to the sections about teens and sex because of the conservative slant. Of course, I don't plan to follow everything I read verbatim, so I discounted the inapplicable sections.

Great advice, that works. Bonus; so easy to jump around and find info on the issue you need help with. Don't need to read the whole book first, who has time for that when you are in the trenches! :)

I thought the material of the book and it's ideas were helpful. However, the content was very wordy and the book was about 2x longer than was required.

One thing that really bothered me was it preached christian values which I don't agree with. A large section on how one should wait until marriage to have sex and how homosexuality is evil.

The good points of the book is that the material and techniques are useful. I just feel that there has to be a better source for the information out there.

The Love and Logic series has been greatly appreciated and used by a number of counselors in the southwest Missouri area. I find this book especially helpful not only for restructuring the behavior of one's own children, but for helping to create a win-win sitution for teenage students. It also makes a great gift for friends and family who are looking for new ways to lovingly outsmart.

Not my cup of tea I guess. Looking for some help parenting a good teen in a difficult world. This books starts off with the "slippery slope" of drugs and sex and proceeds with a "scared straight" case study. I wanted help keeping communication lines open while my teen navigates a very different world than the one I grew up in. Did not make it to chapter two. Moving on to something more relevant.

from the very first page, this book gives you valuable insight into how teens think and feel differently than parents, and why they act the way they do. It provides practical ways to head off arguments before they start, and how to encourage teens to think and act independently and responsibly. Within the first chapter, and putting those suggestions to the test, the tone of conversation with my 12 year old changed instantly. By the time I'd finished the book and been using the tips for a solid week, I was really amazed at how much better I was handling challenging situations.

There are three reasons why I dinged a star.
1) the way the dialogue examples are written, it plays off as kind of sarcastic and as if the teen is just going to go , "OK! Sure!" when you use the "one-liners". That's not real life and I feel the authors could have expounded more on how to say the phrases lovingly, as well as giving some examples where the teen attempted to escalate to an argument. All the hypothetical kids in this book are far too agreeable!

2) The conservative Christian slant. This is EXTREMELY valuable advice for parents of any or no religion, and the Bible references and such only serve to turn off parents who might otherwise greatly benefit from this book. Also, the chapter about sex and the authors' suggestion for parents of children who identify as gay, was a bit difficult to read. I say difficult because it goes on about how "this isn't the 'norm', and it goes against our faith, and blah blah blah." Minus one point. BUT...rather than being homophobic, the authors just left it as, "God says to love all people no matter what, and gay kids deserve our love as much as straight kids". Plus one point.
