    The book was very good in describing the different types of parental styles. I am trying some of the techniques on my 13 year old and they seem to work. I talk to him about consequences and choices and the conversations have gone much smoother.

    Great book

    Haven't read it all (so only 4 * for now), but so far the advice only makes sense, and makes you hit your head as if you could have had a V8. We're not raising children, we're raising adults, and if we treat them like they can't do anything on their own, and they never get to make any decisions on their own (or face any consequences - no just punishment - there's a difference), they'll either rebel, or never leave your house a successful, confident person, who can face problems, and solve them! They're smarter than we think.
    My son just turned 12, and we were always arguing, and my husband was always jumping on him, and no one was talking and our pleasant moments were few. The power struggle was immense (yes, already), and it affected all the relationships in the house. We're all getting along better, and our son is learning his actions have consequences, whether it be from us, or from some other external source. Now, we are all looking at goals, and helping to reach those goals, and it's much more pleasant. At 12, he's still got some "kid" in him, and so nothing is perfect; there are always ways to adjust for your family, but he's been much more aware and we've been much more equipped to handle things as they come up.
    Be aware, we have also sought counseling for our family as well, and the two together has made a difference; our counselor suggested this book. Counseling has not needed to be intense, as we have not allowed the issues to get out of hand for too long. If the issues are a little more serious, it may not be as "easy", but I believe it can work, if you're willing to put in the time and attention.
    It's been well worth the money and time to read it!
