As a parent, you expected the teenage years to bring its share of challenges...But has living with a teen become even more of a nightmare than you ever imagined?
...The shouting matches...the mood swings...the out of control behavior...and worst of all, the mistrust and disrespect that leads to an ever-widening gulf between you and your teen...
What ever happened to your loving, obedient child? More importantly, how can you stop the never-ending cycle of anger and resentment – and rebuild the trust and communication you and your teenager both desire?
It seems no matter how hard you try, you can't escape the endless arguments and disrespect from your teen.

I hope you all can get this email to Christina. I am the father of a 16 year old son. Last night he and I had an episode. I went to the net, looking for articles on parenting angry teenagers. I saw a short article on Christina's book and bought it in a matter of seconds. I read most of it last night. It's as though she was describing me and my son. Her book is fantastic. Thank you for the insight, Christina.
As a parent of a teenager and a pre-teen, I found “Help Me With My Teenager’ to be right on target. I like that Botto’s focus is twofold: the wellbeing of your teenager, and the wellbeing of your parent-teen relationship. If you want to continue to foster a close relationship with your growing child built on trust and respect, help your teen successfully navigate through these confusing and exciting years, and genuinely be there for your teen, this guide is for you.....Absolute Must Read!
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.
This has some great tips on what to expect from teens (trouble) and how to cope with it. It's uncanny how accurate some of the description of behavior patterns are - my daughter shows many of the same patterns, uses the same strategies, and even repeats some of the same arguments nearly word-for-word, as though she were reading from a script. Not only will this book help you hang onto your sanity, but it shows parents how to send them the message that rage, bitterness, and emotional tirades don't work.
This book is very helpful and very specific to specific issues. Each child is different but this gives you useful information to be used on different kinds of young people. The book is realistic and helpful. I have recommended it to several of my friends - Great book.
The book thus far has been very validating. As I read each chapter I find myself thinking yeah my son says that or does that. It really helps put things in perspective. The tips to improve the relationships between parent and child are very logical and easy to apply.
Botto's book helped me understand my son better. Instead of getting angry at him, I now meet him with love and compassion. Our relationship is improving every day. I feel that I am a much better dad to my son by giving him the support he needs. I recommend this book to any parent of a teen.
This guide is a no nonsense “how-to” that is likely to save many relationships. If you need a little guidance, a friendly whisper in the ear about what works and what doesn’t, Christina Botto is here for you….Must Read!
