    Great Help If You Are Raising Teens

    As a busy single mom with two teen sons to raise, I stood in the bookstore and read one whole chapter of this book before deciding to buy it. One chapter was enough: I knew this book could help me! I bought it and took it home. I am about halfway through it. I am enjoying the stories here, I keep finding my own life on these pages. Although there is help for single moms or dads with kids of any age, this is an amazing book if you have teens. I am already changing the way I interact with my two boys.

    Best Book I've Seen for Single Moms!

    I wish I'd had this book 12 years ago when I became a single parent after divorce. This is the most helpful, most clear, and most interesting book I've read for single parents --- I couldn't put it down! It is helping me a lot with my two teenage sons. The chapter on communicating with your teens is well worth the price of the book!
