"I highly recommend this book to parents, teachers, and all others who work with young people. It is one of the best books I have seen on helping adults and adolescents turn their conflict into friendship. Remarkably, it shows how to accomplish this while helping young people develop courage, confidence, responsibility, cooperation, self-respect, and trust. I urge you to read it." —H.

I found the sample read promising, attrbuting the many references of what the book was going to show to the fact it was indeed a sample. Not so. I was still reading an advertisement past halfway the book. All the while it just seemed like a simple sandwich with little to no 'meat'. Granted, with raising two boys that have a myriad of developmental and comprehensive issues I may be expecting more along the lines of my other intensive books. Overall I would recommend this as a possible 'accessary' book, one to have on the side that adds a few more vocabulary words to your discussions you've learned from How to listen to your teen so they will talk- from Adele and Faber.

I saw this title as part of a "series" of sorts on ParentsDigest where I'd just downloaded the summary for Positive Discipline for Preschoolers. Since I have a 2 year old, and 3 teenagers, I downloaded this one as well. It's also been very helpful with helping me understand and relate to my teens in a way that allows their personalities to shine, even while they're living within the limitations of the rules set by MY personality!
