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!

Parent help Aug. 29 2010
By waime - Published on Amazon.com

This book is a lifesaver for anxious parents, mostly moms but dads too. The unforgettable phrase of "not being a manager but a consultant" keeps ringing in my ears from 9th grade through college. I resort to it whenever I need a boost on how to get through this stage of your teens lives. Great idea on setting up a contract with your new teenage driver too. I would recommend it totally.
