The book I keep going back to... May 23 2008
By Cassiopea - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An absolutely essential book for parents. Outlines the common sense approaches we forget in our rush to maintain total authority. Parenting teaches us how little absolute control we have, and that micromanaging will not produce a well-rounded adult from a challenging teenager. What we do have in abundance as parents is influence, and this book focuses on how best to assert that influence. With each new crisis, my first reaction is to try to control. My second reaction is to reach for this book and ponder the wisdom it offers in helping me to help my teenager. Of the several books in my parenting library, none approaches this book for completeness or efficacy. Thank you, Dr. Riera.

Read this Book June 22 2008
By mom of four - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Read this book and the sooner the better! Ideally you will read it by the time the kids are 12. There is value in picking the book up every so often to review the author's message. He is right on!

80% Common Sense June 26 2011
By VictorDeBruner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Most of this book is common sense but I am willing to entertain the idea that alot of people may be short on common sense and will get more from this book. I does have a few pearls of wisdom on how to get your teenager to communicate with parents. I believe this would be more useful if purchased by parents of preteens so they can be armed with the information BEFORE they become distant, self absorbed, teen zombies.
