It will make you feel like it is possible to interact with your teen in a more positive way.
I will finish this book, and I am sure I will even listen more than once so that I can apply some worthy ideas and techniques. But the reviews that say the authors were 'trying to act' and that they felt they were being 'talked down to,' those reviews were spot on. The narration is a turn off, unfortunately. Overblown phrasing when a nice simple reading would have conveyed the information so much better, and I don't hate accents but their accents are annoying. I'll listen in spurts!

Is there anything you would change about this book?
I would make it more informational and not a story. I would also have it read by someone other than the authors.
Has How to Talk So Teens Will Listen and Listen So Teens Will Talk turned you off from other books in this genre?
I did not need a story to learn the concepts.
How could the performance have been better?
The authors were trying to act and it was so unbelievable it turned me off.

There are some useful tidbits in this book but the narration made me cringe. Really cringe! Also there doesn't seem to be any evidence to back up the theory. The story describes a few weeks of parenting seminars and it isn't clear what real issues the parents' faced or whether they were resolved aside from 'improved communication'.

I would have liked some easier to find summary points or a pdf with them on but overall really helpful to stay calm and keep the communication going
