    Might be the right tool for you

    I found this to be a great tool for workiing with teens that typical strategies are lost on. For $15, the book is thin, but I did not feel it left out any information, which is why I think it is a good value. Plus, honestly, how can you put a price on a civil household? I am an educator working specifically with at-risk students. I recommend this book to parents at the end of their ropes. I found this book helpful particularly in building my confidence to stick to what I know is right. A must-read for any person needing ideas on how to handle angry, manipulative, or moody teens.
