I was desperate. I couldn't talk to my son, he was angry, his grades were awful and we fought constantly. I knew that I had to change, but how? I knew he needed help, but I didn't know how to help him. This book help tremendously! It points out the different parenting styles, positive changes to improve your relationship and excersices to help you and your teenager. It makes sense, easy to read and to the point. Must read this book if you have a teenager.

I have found that Parenting Teenagers(STEP) to be one of the best
books available to find practical and real solutions to parenting
today's teenager. I have used the STEP model with my own son, now 19,
and it helped us not only with setting boundaries but also improved
our communications with each other. I have had several friends who
have also used this with their teens and they like it. It's definitely
a book that any parent of a teen should try to read.

As a parent of a child diagnosed as ADHD, and even bi-polar, when all else failed, I found Parenting Teenagers to be the hand book I had searched for. Taken as a class with a weekly discussion group I finally have the tools to help my child without "Toxic Phsyciatry".

It's time for the authors to update this valuable resource. I took a STEP for Children study 8 years ago, and was excited to follow up with the Teen version. However, there are many references to things like limiting the use of the dial up computer time so as not to tie up the house phone. With a few careful updates to make it more 2011+, this could once again be useful to parents. As it is, it feels dated & therefore, not a good choice for my small group.

Dinkmeyer's parenting books for children and for teens are the best I've used as a parenting expert. The books are easy to understand and put into practice. The parenting principle is based on the "Father of Parenting" - Rudolph Dreikurs. Any book on the use of natural and logical consequences is a spin off of Dreikurs' work. Dr. Don Dinkmeyer was a student of Dreikurs. His books have had great popularity by those who know about parenting counseling.

I love this series. It's old but still so relevant. If we all just treated children with respect and kindness as shared in this book, maybe we wouldn't have some of the issues we have today. My favorite parts on on praise vs encouragement, I messages, and motivation.
