Wanted to find answers and found many practical ideas for parenting teens.

The book was very good in describing the different types of parental styles. I am trying some of the techniques on my 13 year old and they seem to work. I talk to him about consequences and choices and the conversations have gone much smoother.

Haven't read it all (so only 4 * for now), but so far the advice only makes sense, and makes you hit your head as if you could have had a V8. We're not raising children, we're raising adults, and if we treat them like they can't do anything on their own, and they never get to make any decisions on their own (or face any consequences - no just punishment - there's a difference), they'll either rebel, or never leave your house a successful, confident person, who can face problems, and solve them! They're smarter than we think. My son just turned 12, and we were always arguing, and my husband was always jumping on him, and no one was talking and our pleasant moments were few. The power struggle was immense (yes, already), and it affected all the relationships in the house. We're all getting along better, and our son is learning his actions have consequences, whether it be from us, or from some other external source. Now, we are all looking at goals, and helping to reach those goals, and it's much more pleasant. At 12, he's still got some "kid" in him, and so nothing is perfect; there are always ways to adjust for your family, but he's been much more aware and we've been much more equipped to handle things as they come up. Be aware, we have also sought counseling for our family as well, and the two together has made a difference; our counselor suggested this book. Counseling has not needed to be intense, as we have not allowed the issues to get out of hand for too long. If the issues are a little more serious, it may not be as "easy", but I believe it can work, if you're willing to put in the time and attention. It's been well worth the money and time to read it!

The principles in this book when applied will prepare your teen for what ever this world throws at them. I wish I had read this book about 15 years sooner. This book is a must and I've given my daughter a copy of the same book for younger children.

Came recdommended by the assistant principal at my son's High School. Great parenting "nuggets" and an indepth look in to why teenagers do what they do. Great for any one that currently has teenagers or will soon. I wish I'd known about this series of parenting books when my children were younger.

A comment for the last review....I think the fact the our lives are not sorrounded by christain based books, music T.V. programs etc... that in itself is what is wrong with the youth of America. So, the fact that GOD or BIBLICAL REFERENCES were made in the book, are exactly what needs to be in a book on how to help TEENS. PLEASE, AMERICA wake up.

* A week without God makes one WEAK!

Without withholding due praise for the odd gem of old-fashioned common sense in there, this work seems to be mostly self-serving (constant mention of the 'Love and Logic' seminars, and how the parents in the presented scenarios could never have coped without them), and almost evangelical in its nature. There are frequent, unnecessary references to Biblical teachings. This book is actually sold as a Christian religious book by many retailers. The NavPress (see 'The Navigators')publish or published this one as one of their titles. However, there is no mention of any faith-based content in any advertising (or in the website, jacket, foreword, seminars advertisements etc.). I have no personal issue with faith/religion, but I prefer not to read missionary Christian based works. Had I known this was such I would not have bought this book. Foster Cline is considered by many to be the father of 'Attachment Therapy'. I would urge you to research this independently.
