It is a rare book that covers the tween to teen years with little more than a chapter covering ages 8-12, and another chapter covering ages 12 and up. We begin to examine our parenting style and become aware of new issues at or around the time our child is 11. We have finally become the experts on our children, and they reciprocate by growing up and presenting us with a whole new universe of problems. This book, The Roller Coaster Years, by Carlene C. Gianetti and Margaret Sagarese, is the missing piece in child rearing material. What a spectacular find! You absolutely must get this book, and refer to it often, if you live or work with children between the ages of 8 and 15. We know what is within "normal" limits for our babies, toddlers and primary grade school children. This book educates us further as to what is "normal" for our budding young adults. Learning what to expect, and rational ways of handling situations that arise, will give us the confidence we need to continue to guide our children into adulthood.

Chapter-by-chapter real-world tips and explanations for why adolescents 'do what they do' -- and oftentimes why they DON'T do what parents expect. This was a wonderful source book for a Girl Scout training course offered in our Council, and gives a clear, charted course through the minefield of adolescence. Easy reading, too -- sound advice presented without the pretentious psychobabble of numerous other books on the subject.
