Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This guide encourages a broad and gentle approach to parenting teens. The book covers little new ground as a practical parenting tool, instead parroting expertise found in the Q&A sections of books like John Rosemond's Teen Proofing (LJ 11/15/98). The writing is often dramatic (teens are on a constant "search for truth") and contradictory (computer games are alternately "life negating" and "lifelines"); such issues like sexuality, drugs, and work are covered superficially. The Eliums (Raising a Family: Living on Planet Parenthood, LJ 5/15/97) also encourage consideration of alternative parenting techniques; few techniques are clearly explored, however. For example, frequent mention of the Waldorf method does not include consideration of its root belief system, theosophy. Interested parents will be compelled to find more detail elsewhere. Readers interested in developing a theoretical parenting philosophy may find useful information, but few will learn helpful, practical suggestions for day-to-day parenting. For larger public libraries with strong parenting collections only.--Douglas C. Lord, Hartford P.L., CT Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    RAISING A TEENAGER

    Raising a teenager is an easy reading book that provides insight into adolescent development. The book attempts to answer questions that parents face while their children journey through the stages of development. This book compares adolescence to the second birth of our children and as parents we must learn again to care for them as they journey through life. Emphasis is placed on the importance of the parent's role in adolescent development, setting boundaries, limitations and most of all role modeling. I feel parents can benefit by reading this book. j
