Editorial Reviews


"Parents must read this book! After working with over 300,000 teens I know they need someone to decode their experiences into solutions that parents can use for stronger relationships. Rhett Godfrey does it by translating today's teen experience into practical strategies that parents will benefit from immediately. These are secrets that parents need to hear."--Jason Ryan Dorsey, Best-selling author of Graduate to Your Perfect Job and international speaker on teen performance

"Rhett Godfrey's The Teen Code tells you what teens are thinking. Reading it will help you to keep honest communication open. Keep in mind, what teens say they want from you isn't always the same as what you should provide. They still need limits. But even when they roll their eyes at you, they're listening, and they need you to listen, too. This book is a good start to understanding whey they're coming from. -- Sylvia Rimm, Ph.D., director of the Family Achievement Clinic, clinical professor at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, and author or the New York Times bestseller See Jane Win: The Rimm Report on How 1,000 Girls Became Successful Women

About the Author

Rhett Godfrey is a high school senior and an expert in one thing: being a teenager. He's conversed with teens from every state to help parents understand what kids really think-and the secret code for getting them to listen. This is his first book.

Neale S. Godfrey is Rhett's mother, so she doesn't always know how teens, including her own son, think. But she's willing to listen, as were the child behavior experts she interviewed in response to Rhett's findings. Her book Money Doesn't Grow on Trees was the #1 New York Times bestseller.

Format: Hardcover
One goodie-good kid and overpowering parent wrote this book. Not very helpful in directing the youth. A video would be more helpful.
