Now you have an alternative to micromanaging, cajoling, or ineffective punishments. This positive guide provides a science-based program for promoting teens' independence by building their executive skills - the fundamental brain-based abilities needed to get organized, stay focused, and control impulses and emotions.

The information was fantastic.
Her vocal growl is very irritating it shows a laziness in her presentation it is there in the text throughout and especially when she is reading quotes which might not have been so bad. But the consistancy of the growl was just bothersome. She is a fine reader if she could just loose the growl.
The information and PDFs for this book are tremendously helpful. I highly recommend this book for all parents who see their child starting to have trouble in Junior High.
