By D. Edwards on August 11, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is a fabulous book that I happened upon and could not put down. It should be titled, "What to expect from your teens and yes, it is normal". I found this book a fabulous tool with which to measure my teens progress against those of other teens without compairing them to the unrealistic expectations of many driven parents in our society and to take a step back and recognize the tremendous accomplishments that they make every day through good choices and responsible behaviors despite the occasional misstep. Teenagers are growing as rapidly as toddlers and this is a how to manual for all parents.

this book really helped me understand my teen better! The stories were at times directly or indirectly related to what my teen and I are going through. Definately helpful!

My 12 year old son and I both read this book. We talked about the topics and how to cultivate our relationship together while he is entering his years of apathy. I think we both learned a lot and he appreciates that I shared this with him.

This book clearly outlines ways for families to connect, communicate and accept each other, leading to a closer bond and a more harmonious family environment. The situations described will hit home for many parents. Reading the book and looking at what is occurring within the family with honesty and awareness is the key as the solutions to difficulties are the responsibility of each member and much more than just expecting the teenager to change. As a school counselor, I reference this book often and recommend it strongly when parents are having difficulties with their teenagers. It is a must-read for parents of teens or pre-teens.
