"If you have a tween or teenage girl or if you have a daughter younger than this, this book would definitely be the type of book that could be a lifesaver"
"Since most of my audience is composed of believers, I just want to note that even though a book is based on a secular worldview, it may contain some nuggets of wisdom which we can blend in with our own traditions - within our own value system - to help us avoid or deal with parenting problems."
"With Arden and her essential and accessible primer at their side, moms can not only survive, but actually thrive during the teenage years."
"I would suggest this book as a great way to open the doors for communication even if you don't agree with everything and every conversation starter. It helped me think about how I would approach the situation and also gives me a calm thought to different issues instead of getting hit with it out of the blue one day."
"In my opinion, I think that this is a book that is good for advice to show different views."
"This is the bible for mothers with tweens or teens."
"I dog-eared over 50 pages in this 300 plus page book. I highly recommend this book if you have a daughter age 10 and up."
