This book was checked out of the library, and has since been removed from the school. It has fantastic contents however, if you have certain views on sex, you may not want your child reading it. If you are too chicken to cover the subject this is an alternative. This book should however be two seperate books. The sections on manners and such are so awesome it would be worth cutting out the contents you don't want younger children reading. I myself cover those views and topics myself. You make your judgement with your child.

Parents of Asperger's Syndrome teens and preteens: This is the answer to your prayers! Do you need a way to teach your child the rules for social behaviors? This book covers it all, but best of all the author has a great sense of humor that really reaches kids. I bought it and just left it out-my teen with Asperger's was bringing it to me to share what he was reading. This is as effective as any social skills group we've attended. My neurotypical kid loves it too! Alex J Packer is hilarious, and makes learning manners a riot on every page. Don't rent it, buy it. Your kids will use it for years and years.

I checked this book out from my school library and I had to renew it for 2 weeks cause it was so great. This book tells you everything like about boys and girls, relationships, and lots more.

My husband bought this book as a present for our daughter last year when he was away on a trip. She does NOT like to read, it is always a problem getting her to read for class, so it was a great surprise to me that she is reading this book and LOVES it! She received it when she was in 6th grade and now it is the end of 7th and she still uses and reads it. Recently her 5th grade brother had reason for her to help him and they went to the book, him stating he wished he had one too! I have read some if it and it gives good advice on how to respond in different difficult situations, with acceptable responses according to my daughter. She states I give dorky advice, she tells her brother don't say what Mom says you will be a wimp etc. The best recommendation I can give is that my 13 year old thinks it is great and the advice from a parents view is appropriate and well mannered, yet acceptable from a teenagers point of view.

I loved this book! I read it from cover to cover! It covers a lot of etiquette issues, but while adding humor at the same time. Also in this book are issues that you normally may not think involve manners: like manners on surfing the net.
