Yesterday, your child was a sweet, well-adjusted eight-year-old. Today, a moody, disrespectful 12-year-old. What happened? And more important, how do you handle it? How you respond to these whirlwind changes will not only affect your child's behavior now but will determine how he or she turns out later. Julie A. Ross, executive director of Parenting Horizons, shows you exactly what's going on with your child and provides all the tools you need to correctly handle even the prickliest tween porcupine.

Find out how other parents survived nightmarish tween behavior - and still raised great kids
Break the "nagging cycle", give your kids responsibilities and get results
Talk about sex, drugs, and alcohol so your kid will listen
Discover the secret that will help your child to disregard peer pressure and make smart choices - for life


What the Critics Say

"Ross's central metaphor, 'tweens' as prickly-but-loveable porcupines, is funny and effective, and her writing style is easy-going, making this an accessible and practical primer." (Library Journal)
