Product Description

Review

This book is so amazing and has helped so many parents I know deal with the everyday trails of teenage parenting. You owe it to your children to buy this book and learn from knowledge of P.H.D. experts in the field of potential Teenage Dangers. See for yourself --Nicholas e Spiro

As a Parent Advocate, this book has extremely valuable information for any parent that may be struggling with their teen. The authors take an approach that is easy to understand and offers insights to today's generation of teenagers. --Sue Scheff

At last, a book written to help parents and those who work with TEENAGERS understand what is going on in those adolescent brains. I now have a much better understanding of what emotional changes my two teenagers are going through, what behavior I can expect, and what to do if some of the trouble signs clearly outlined in the book start to appear in their behavior. I know that this book has helped me understand them and relate to them with new insight that can only help. Thanks for writing this! --Steven Edmunds

Format: Paperback
I bought this and another book to help me understand and cope with a difficult phase in my teenage daughter's life. The other book was excellent, this was not.

The authors seemed very keen to medicalise and condemn teenagers for their behavioural issues without appearing to offer any insight into the root causes of these issues or offering parents a constructive or positive way out. I think if I had followed this book's advice my daughter would now be much worse off, rather than the happy and positive teenager she now is one year later.

By comparison, Get Out of My Life: But First Take Me and Alex Into Town was extremely positive and insightful.

Don't buy this book, buy the other one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read 27 July 2011
By MN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have to say as soon as I started reading this book I couldn't put it down. So much practical advice for the struggling parent (much of which I've already started to put to use!). Will definitely recommended this to friends. Truly a must-read for the parent at wit's end!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for parents 10 Sept. 2007
By NSA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Every parent should read this book and then keep it on hand for the inevitable day when the book will be needed as a resource. It is well written, well organized, contains believable excerpts from real experiences, and informs the parent/caregiver in a way that is understandable, albeit terrifying, on what our teenagers face and how they cope.
