Dr. Samenow is a psychologist who provides insight and guidance to parents whose children have a pattern of misbehavior and hostility. He shows how skillful such children are in manipulating parents, teachers and others to get their way. I recommend this book to parents, teachers and guidance counselors who interact with antisocial teenagers. The author provides numerous examples of dysfunctional behavior. He shows to identify and deal with antisocial behavior. He instructs parents to stop blaming themselves and shift responsibility to the teenager creating the behavior. His approach is pointed and on target.

Couldn't put this one down. I recommend this for ALL parents - not just those with 'troubled kids.'
