In this tough but compassionate book, psychologist Dr. Maryann Rosenthal tells how to find a balance betwen loving your children and setting limits for them, between granting freedom and instilling discipline.
Finding that balance is not simple, but Dr. Rosenthal explains in plain English and through the use of many examples how parents can become both positive and proactive.
Specfically, parents will learn:
-A five-step program (A-D-U-L-T) for breaking down barriers between themselves and their teen.
-Why they should trust themselves to make good rules for teen behavior, then stick by them.
-How to help teens set and reach goals, shed stress, and develop strong character.
-The ways in which physical changes in the teen brain may be affecting behavior. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

reflected my situation. I made changes in myself and the a MIRACLE happened. I saw a light and my son was in the middle of it. I "got him" more than before. I recommend it for anyone needing a point of view from ALL directions. I'm not stressed as much as before.
I wish I had this book earlier in my own child-rearing. The teen years are tricky. They can catch a parent off-guard. Dr. Rosenthal provides explanations, solutions and relief for every parent willing invest the time to read his book. STOP! Buy this book! ;)
I highly recommend this book to parents of all ages.
The book is very well-organized and written with warmth and humor in a style which is user-friendly without being simplistic. I highly recommend this book.
