Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Parents with adolescents will claim this as their survival bible. Wolf translates teenagers' words explaining what they really want, how they express the confusing struggle of becoming, and their skill at deflecting parents' concerns so they get their needs met. The dialogue and analysis are completely on target and full of sense. The author's tone is playful and astute.

    I actually thought the author was living in our house

    Excellent, I actually said the exact things that the author said was a no, no. only thing i did not agree with is the point that you should not punish them, just firmly lay down the rules. This house would be a fee for all. the first time she realized their wasnt any recourse she wouldnt come home at all. Overall really enjoyed this book.

    Following in the tradition of my own parents¿ philosophy, I tend to be somewhat conservative in my approach to the way in which children should be brought up. Therefore, I was skeptical about what I might find in a book which focuses on the ¿new teenager.¿ Dr. Wolf, however, pleasantly surprised me. As Dr. Wolf points out, teenagers today live in a much more complex world. They are certainly more independent. This autonomy has, at times, fostered mouthier, more disobedient adolescents. Compounding this problem, are societal pressures which have resulted in fewer parental rights and the adoption of more lenient parental practices. In an easily readable, sometimes humorous style, Wolf recreates conversations between parents and their teens. What impressed me most about the book was its serious establishment guidelines, not rules, for effective combining tried-and-true methods with modern suggestions for strengthening and improving parent-child relationships. Wolf does not embrace the permissive style of child-rearing which seems to have popularized in recent years. He emphasizes the necessity to establish limits and stresses the importance of follow-through when these boundaries are crossed. His suggestions for confronting such infractions are reasonable. He reminds parents that they must always maintain confidence that they know what is right for their children. At the same time, he offers the practical advice that some battles are not worth fighting and that proper perspective is an essential factor in parental decision-making. I recommend this book to parents and teachers alike who need guidance and reassurance in their relationships with adolescents. Though not a cure-all for every teen-related problem, it is a practical manual for surviving this difficult transition in a child¿s life.
