Read an Excerpt

Part of a dynamic, five-part parenting series, this paperback release will be instantly recognized by readers who trust the Babywise and Childwise books for wisdom on childrearing. Parents of eight- to twelve-year-olds face the challenge of transition from using adult authority to leveraging the power of personal influence to motivate their middle-years youth. Gary Ezzo and pediatrician Robert Bucknam give parents communication tips and effective ways to insulate their child from peer "groupthink." They discuss seven warning flags and how to respond to them. This is a book for all parents seeking an atmosphere of mutual respect in the home, nonrebellious teen years, and a future friendship with their grown child.

This book is exactly what my husband and I needed. We felt like we were coasting in our parenting duties with our 8 and 10 year olds and starting to see behavioral problems. This book helped explain what is happening and how to deal with it. The practical exercises are excellent and working! Now it's up to us to be consistent.

This a great book about middle childhood when kids are starting to get moody and you suspect hormones are in play!
