I really liked this book. Ive been floundering with my teenage son for a while now. He has recently been diagnosed with depression, so this book helped me to separate what is normal male teenage behaviour as opposed to depression. Quite easy to get the two mixed up or intertwined. It tells it like it is, without a lot of scaremongering. I realised after reading it that Im actually a good parent to my teenage son, and the fact that he can and does come and speak to me when he is having problems gives me a sense of pride. It is so confusing being the parent of a teenager, and you can often be thrown into such a range of emotions that you dont know where you are, so it was helpful to be able to see that Im not the only one. I have a 13 year old daughter, and know I will be reading this book again in the next few years.
