Editorial Reviews

I Am Modern Magazine
Everyone has their own methods of parenting, but author Ellen Pober Rittberg's unorthodox; outside-the-box methods are soothing to the war-torn souls of adults caught in the onslaught of adolescence. After all, laughter is the best medicine, right? Ellen isn't afraid to broach topics that other parenting books may avoid, such as "If your teen doesn't let you know their whereabouts, hunt them down!" or "Use that important tool in your arsenal: disappointment and disapproval." All written with a certain flair of humorous affectation. Her voice is strong, sentimental and refreshing and we think she summed it up in her ever so witty way by adding, "Your teen's aim is to suppress the information flow, and yours is to make it flow like the Mississippi River after a flood." If you want to learn how to dig deep, survive and perhaps even crack the psyche of your hormonal, temperamental, ever-changing teen you may be interested in this light-hearted, pragmatic parenting advice. Simply: You have a teen or know someone who does, check out this book.
