This book is okay. I've read many parenting books and there's little here that's good that I haven't heard before...but some of what's on here is just...not good.
Example: The writer portrays a parenting scenario of a child being disrespectful to her mother on a Saturday morning. The parent does nothing, keeping a cool head and ignoring the teen. Saturday evening when the teen asks for mom's car keys, mom has made sure to have them in her pocket, and says "no." "But why," the girl inquires? "Because I didn't like being disrespected this morning," the parent replies.
This is supposed to be an example of an effective deterrent...waiting 9 hours to stick it to a kid is not likely to improve their relationship, or teach self-control or respect, in my opinion. And there are a number of similar suggestions that I might find laughable in a parenting book, if it wasn't all so disappointing.
Then there's the fact that the author mentions your child may need to be moved to a different school or even a different city for any changes to work with him/her...so much for having a new teen by Friday.
