    EXCELLENT RESOURCE

    This book was excellent in understanding adolescents and why they behave the way they behave. It is easy to understand for people who don't have much of a background in brain development, yet gives practical suggestions on implementing the information.

    Highly Recommended! This is a must-read for parents of pre-teens and teens!

    Dr. Walsh's writing is easy and often entertaining to read. He offers real-life situations with practical "Dos and Don'ts" for parents. I had many "Ah-ha!" moments reading this book and have gained a better perspective on the choices and behaviors of my pre-teen and teens!

    Genius!!!

    Not only have I read this book twice (which I rarely do), I've also been to a lecture/parenting seminar Dr. Walsh gave at my kids high school. I only wish I had this knowledge sooner! The information I recieved from Dr. Walsh changed mine, and my kids lives. This is one of the few books I've read that I think if every parent reads, especially early on to be prepared for teen years, our world, and kids, would be much healthier and happier. Parenting my difficult teens is not only easier armed with this information (something I NEVER thought I would say), we are all better people for it.
