The only thing this book did for me was to solidify all the things I wouldn't do in raising my pre-teens and teens. This book is the antithesis of grace based parenting. It works by 'not trusting' your kids as protecting them from everything possible. I was so shocked at some of the suggested made that I kept reading it aloud to my husband who was just as shocked. If you want resentful kids, go this route. It's very legalistic for those who like that sort of thing. I'd rather go with trust and respect as the default unless they prove they can't be trusted.
