5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable!, 22 May 2012
This review is from: The Teen Years - Don't Get Mad - Get Through: A parent's guide to surviving the teenage years without tearing your hair out... (Kindle Edition)
This book is written for parents struggling to understand their teenager and therefore is at odds in their relationship with them. The content is written from the point of view that the teenager is NOT their behaviour and that, as such, their behaviour is not to be taken personally by the parent.

It gives explanation about the brain development of a teenager in a way that is easily understood and gives the reasoning behind the teenager's behaviour which supports the parent's understanding; giving way to compassion for self (as a parent) and teenager, in what can be a very challenging time.

The book gives practical steps that can be put in place to deal with various situations that may arise between parents and teenagers which, when followed, helps the parent cope with the situation in an effective way, whilst maintaining and supporting a positive relationship. The book also presents some in-depth questions for the parent to explore their own self awareness, should they wish to do so.

Written in a simple, easy to read format, using every day language the author uses her own real life examples to convey how to put the practical steps in place for upmost effectiveness.

Overall, this book offers valuable advice and guidance for parents, which when followed step by step supports parents influencing their teenager in a way that is empowering to both parties in the parent/teenager relationship.
