5.0 out of 5 stars Great Advice for Raising a Capable Teen, Jan. 18 2000
By 
My daughter is just becoming a teenager, and I am glad I purchased this book at this time. It has helped me to identify my enabling behaviors that maintain her dependence on me. I am now working to empower my daughter to become more independent in her decision making. This book is presented in a very logical format and the suggestions are easily implemented. I have never used punishment as a motivator with my daughter and now feel vindicated in that choice. I encourage parents of teens to get this book for a refreshingly alternative approach to interacting with our teens - treating them like the individuals that they are. Good luck!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent information, practical, upbeat, real-life examples, Nov. 4 1997
By A Customer
I found this book to be very informative as well as giving great real-life examples; These are helpful in deciding how to talk to your teen in a way that makes them NOT want to tune you out, but also doesn't make them feel ashamed or bad. I would recommend it for any parent who is not sure how to approach problems and conflicts with their teenager--and doesn't want to create a chasm between them.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book on teen discipline, March 9 1999
By 
I present workshops for parents and teachers of teenagers, in the Los Angeles area. I have researched many books, all of which have valuable information. What makes this book different, is the format. It is easy to look up a problem and find the resolution. Parents and teachers have found it invaluable.Dealing with teenagers can be a trying proposition. They are adults-in-training and need all the guidance and patience we can give them. With the help of this book, I have been successful with the workshop presentations.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Positive Discipline for Teenagers, Revised 2nd Edition: Empowering Your Teens and Yourself Through Kind and Firm Parenting (Paperback)
I am only in the second chapter of this book, but already have found it a tremendous help - very easy to understand and read. This book also includes optional short, easy and helpful activities/exercises to do at the end of the chapters, as well as helps you determine your goals and how to achieve them. Will definitely be using this book as a reference in the years to come. Am so happy I bought this book.
