However, moving on to the later chapters I was disappointed. Firstly, this is a US book and so spends quite a lot of time talking about driving, driving when distracted and using cars in various ways as incentives to change behaviour, possibly more so than would be relevant for UK teens.
Given that I readily identified with many of the scenarios played out in the book between teens and their parents I was hoping for some deep insights into how to help my teen learn better skills. The advice could be summed up in three words - motivate, support and negotiate, all of which we had already tried in various forms before turning to the book.
In summary, it's interesting but doesn't really give any deep insights or help beyond basic common sense.
