These books helped me figure out what "the small stuff" was, so, I could identify "normal" behavior and relax. If you are determined to raise your children in a nurturing, supportive way, without a lot of criticism and policing, this series will help you. Knowing what developmental stage your child is in really helps keep the anxiety level low.
Be forewarned, though, no matter how relaxed you are as a parent, teenagers probably never are completely "normal." Some are only mildly wacky. Some are very wacky. We had one at each end of the spectrum. The key with them must be to remember they are still a work in progress. Humans take a long time to get "done." Set standards, hold your breath, pray a lot,and wait--never give up.
As an only child and the mother of a wonderful (now 15 year old) only child, I was at a loss of the changes that my daughter went through during her growing years.
A kindergarden teacher recommended this book and I was hooked! I read the whole series and by understanding the _developmental_ changes of my daughter, I was able to raise her in a calm and loving manner. I emphasize the word 'developmental' because that is the key to all child development and in the raising of a happy and healthy human being. I came here today looking for the book for a friend who just had a baby. I HIGHLY recommend it!

I have not read this book cover-to-cover, but I think I get the idea from reading large sections throughout the book. I don't like it. Read morePublished on Dec 18 2001 by Acumama
This book is very outdated. ... says it has been revised, but mine was 15 years old, with no revisions. I returned it.Published on June 15 2001 by S. Kennedy
