Someone flicked a switch in my 10-year old son at the beginning of the holidays. I suddenly realised that what used to work doesn't any more and I worried that I was going to blow what has been a good relationship up until now by not being able to tolerate the changes he cant help. I saw this book in the library and realised that its the kind of thing you need on hand before you find you've pushed yourself down a route there's no coming back from. This book explains things from both points of view and gives really good advice about how to approach things so as not to over-dominate and yet not give in either, what matters and what we can compromise on. I think the next few years will be tricky but I feel better prepared for what's coming and how to deal with it. Also, its written in an easy, practical style that you can read from cover to cover or dip into, whatever you have time for. Its not airy-fairy psychology, just practical parenting advice. It will certainly help us both to be more understanding.

In the never ending quest to attempt to be a good parent this really helps. Simple and informative its valuable read for a second opinion or guide for what you should concentrate on. Good parenting isn't about being perfect, or trying to get it right all the time, its more about learning to adapt and adjust; fast - this book helps toward that. Don't let the kids read it unless you want to receive 'constructive' criticism from them - be humble!

The ideal 'dip in' type of book full of no-nonsense advice; of benefit to teachers as well, although primarily parents. Culturally-specific to living in Britain and British culture.
