This review is from: Raising Teenagers: 52 brilliant ideas for high-performance parenting (Paperback)
Having a teenager is new to me. I know that it comes up very quickly and I can still remember my own teenage years. However dealing with a teen puts parenting into a whole new category. I needed this really clever and helpful manual. Set out as 52 brilliant ideas it means that it can flit between different subjects. Words of wisdom in one book. This book helps move out of the negative spiral that seems to overhang the house and on trying a number of the ideas I do feel more positive. My teen appears to be more willing on some occasions which has made the whole household just a little easier. I will be keeping this book next to my bed so that I can have a quick reminder all the time and try different ideas as the weeks go by. The implications of my actions on reading this book are obviously working as we are able to hold a nice conversation without complete negativity all over us. A small cloud has been moved over. (not lifted yet but moved just a little to the left. I am happy to recommend this book to those of you with teenagers or almost teens as this has some valuable information in.
