Format: Paperback
Our church used this as the core text for a series of group sessions for hurting parents-- parents of teens in various states of rebellion, destructive lifestyle choices, and apathy. It proved to be quite helpful, well-grounded in Christian principles, and with many good insights and practical steps to take.

13 years ago, we belonged to one of Buddy Scott's support groups and used his book as our manuel. I am firmly convinced that my husband & I would have been divorced now if we didn't have the help from Buddy's book. It is clear and concise with common sense approach to dealing with an out of control teen. It also gives principals to help younger children before they reach that horrible stage in their life. I will forever be grateful for Buddy's help! I am always recommending his book to those who are struggling with difficult teens. It's like receiving something substantial to hold onto along with the Word of God in a emotional emergency.

Format: Paperback
Our group of four couples "taught" ourselves the associated class based on the principles in this Christian-based book; three couples for rescue and one for prevention. I am now teaching the class for the third time and, as word spreads, several dozen families have been helped in rescuing their rebellious teens and by learning prevention techniques and guiding principles used in raising their children. We recommend it highly.

Format: Paperback
This book has been so helpful. My wife and I have looked long and hard for something as appropriate as this book to help us through a powerful substance abuse problem with our (now) 17 year old son. He is just completing almost 7 months in the best residential treatment facility in our state, has had several hospitalizations both voluntary and involuntary as well as a stretch in a group home because of his wild and dangerous behaviors. During all these months my wife and I have been reading a lot of books, seen the best therapist we could find for ourselves, had intensive counseling sessions with staff at all the facilities he has been committed to including four good psychiatrists. But during all that time this book hits home more specifically to the patterns we have been through and is better even than the book recommended to us by the latest psychiatrist in our son's treatment facility. It reinforces everything we have learned to improve our parenting and we wish we had found this book years ago. I recommend this book for parents of any difficult or troubled kid, and I am buying extra copies to give to both our family therapist and and to our son's staff psychiatrist.

Unlike most self help parenting books, this book provides concrete and paractical examples from real case histories and further offers very easily applied strategies to help empower parents who feel helpless and are in pain. This book gives parents tools that work to improve the apparently impossible situations they find themselves in with their teenagers in trouble. It shares a tremendous pattern of commonality between many troubled adolescents. It shares and guides in a homey and friendly way in a time when parents feel so alone and guilty, humiliated and hurt, blindsided or incompetent. The title of the book doesn't even mention adolescents but that is exactly the age it helps with the most.

Format: Paperback
Some great aspects of this book is that the author teaches parents how to develop a confident posture (which includes self-control) as well as he provides clear thought processes and strategies for handling a child's misbehavior. The author takes a "work on yourself first" approach with parents, which is empathetic but firm. Consequently if the information is implemented, change in the parent's behavior leads to change in the children's behavior. The family system as a whole starts to operate in more positive ways!
