Warnings like this from friends and relatives, together with media images of adolescents as irresponsible, rebellious troublemakers, can lead parents to expect trouble as their children enter puberty. It is a rare parent who does not approach a child's adolescence without some misgivings. But family life does not have to be a battleground during the teenage years.

The essence of their technique teaches parents to allow their children to learn about solving their own problems by setting up choices and consequences.

The contents gives solid tips on how to work toward a positive outcome and offers a variety of scenarios, demonstrating precisely how a parent's words and actions can be the source of a teen's compliant or defiant response. When parents and teens are getting along, family life can be wonderful. Teens really are enjoyable and energizing. Their wit and high spirits make them fun to be around.

Although this guide is intended mainly for parents of teenagers, it is general enough to be useful to parents of younger children as well.

    A Must Have for All Parents

    This book offers a truly different perspective on parenting that you will not find anywhere else. This book contains a great deal of insight into the teenage psyche. A ton of valuable information is available to parents, who are more often than not out of touch with their teenage children. This book could quite possibly improve and enhance the relationships of teens and parents.

    Looking for ways and methods to help mothers and fathers understand their kids and vica versa? Understanding is the first step toward better relationships and a greater capacity to accept differences among loved ones. From a parent's point of view it is hard to have this lovable child that is so precious suddenly become a monster. From the teen's perspective it is impossible to understand how someone who is trying to ruin my life can really love me or care.

    Parents and teens need to understand each other's thinking and feeling capacities. Without that knowledge we expect the impossible. Parents need to know that kids think differently from us, and with less logical functioning. Kids need to know that they may not be interpreting actually the facial expressions and remarks of their parents.


    And so Dr. Sarah sets out to help both generations. She has provided great research on cognitive development. She also has provided tons of data on what kids really think. And she has given both generations ways of finding solutions around so many of the growing up issues that seem to send sparks flying in the household. I think this is the best book I have seen for parents, teachers and teens. Everyone can read and benefit from the material and the suggestions. Anyone who is around teens should read this book to understand them better.
