When it comes down to the difficult details--what to do about cell phones, driving, sleepovers, the internet, etc.--the best of us can feel challenged to do the right (or even the "good enough") thing. Fortunately, help is here! This book walks you through the decision-making process in a way that allows you to be consistent with your own values and your own parenting styles (Is it safe? Is it practical? Does it meet my standards for morality and decency?).
You're already the expert on your own kid; Letting Go helps you learn how to use your intuition and good intentions to raise kids who will be responsible, resilient, and self-sufficient in the 21st century. And learn to like them at the same time.
I recommend this book to all parents in my adolescent medicine practice. This should be the first stop the next time you wonder, "Now what do I do?"

I haven't been disappointed. Dr. Ginsburg presents his information in an easy to read form, free from a lot of jargon, and provides practical examples that make sense. My daughter is 13 and only wish the book had been written five years ago! There are some things in the book that are forehead slappers that I wish I had done before she reached this age. I'm impressed enough that I'll certainly be looking into his other works as well.
Bottom line: Dr. Ginsburg provides very useful, and more importantly, practical information for parents approaching or in those difficult adolescent years. Buy it!
An easy read, Dr. Ginsburg really gets what it is like to love, fear and worry about our teens.
This is the how to talk about it, when to do it guide that will make each of us a more confident parent. Argue less, nag not at all, and still grow the kid you've got to be a great adult. Buy this book!
