Children's LiteratureFull of practical ideas and true stories, this book will give parents advice and motivation to deal with the day-to-day happenings of teens. Divided into three sections, Ford focuses on keeping the peace with teens, enjoying the spirit of youth, and building a trusting relationship. Each short chapter deals with a single idea usually illustrated by a personal anecdote. Chapters are brief for the busy parent and have specific strategies that can be put into action immediately. While some of the advice seems simplistic at first read, parents and teachers can use the book as a reminder of the foundations needed for a strong parent/teen relationship. This book would make an excellent addition to a public library or to a parent resource center. Teachers could use this book in a myriad of ways—to discuss parenting techniques, as a discussion starter for student journals and many others. 2002 (orig. 1996), Conari Press, Ages Adult.
