    Great parenting strategies for raising teenagers!

    This book really changed the way I was dealing with getting my son, age 14, to do his homework. I was tired on nagging all the time. I had to realized he must take the responsibility for his own success or failure. It opened up new ideas about letting kids learn from the inside-out, instead of from the outside-in. Teaching them to learn from mistakes sometimes, instead of arguing with your kids you can feel empathy for them and with them. My husband and I have completely changed our way of dealing with our teen. It's a total transformation. This is a must read book. I wish all parents of teenagers would read this book and practice Love and Logic principles!

    a good tool for parents and teachers

    Parenting teens with love and logic is a parent¿s guild on how to prepare here kids for responsible adulthood. The book gives readers steps and rules to follow when they are parenting. Some of the steps are using empathy when a child makes a mistake followed by a question such as asking the child what he or she is going to do about the mistake. Love and logic teaches that the best way for kids to learn how to become responsible adults is to learn from their mistakes and to live with the consequences. Giving kids choices is key, as is making home life as much like the real world as possible. After reading ¿Parenting Teens With Love and Logic¿ and applying the five steps at work with the kids, I think that it is affective. Cline and Jim achieve their goal in helping parents to raise responsible children. They give you ways to deal with specific situation such as the example they give you in Chapter Four on how to deal with kids and alcohol. Its shows the reader key thing to say when approaching a kids how is or was under the influence of alcohol, buy not yelling show you are concerned for then. Make then think about the consequences have tell you what happens when people drink and drive. This book is not only good for parents, but is also good for teachers as well as anyone working with kids.

    Wish I Knew, What every parent will be saying!

    Unfourtunatley for us, we learned of this book well after we needed it. If there ever was a 'how to' on raising children, these gentlemen have written it. We actually attended a class by a county agency and they used this book to develop the class. Its full of, what can I say but 'logical' ways of parenting. They should hand you this book in the delivery room. And it works for spouses too. Don't miss the boat on this one, it can only help. And, with teens you can never have enough help.

    He Should Can the Sarcasm

    Many of his ideas are very good. He could improve his writing by reducing his use of sarcasm. He uses the word "sad" excessively in a sarcastic way and recommends parents use it too.
