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.

I recently downloaded the e-book “Help with my Teenager” by Christina Botto. “Help with my Teenager” is insightful and absolutely On The Mark, and I have to congratulate Ms Botto with a wonderful directive which should definitely be read by all parents!
While reading this book, I felt that the real stories the author shared helped me in realizing I'm not alone and that so many other parents were dealing with the same thing. The book helped me in approaching problems with my daughter in a different way.
I've only just begun reading this book, but I'm hooked. What makes this book special is its perfect blend of enlightening information about how to interpret what kids are really saying and/or trying to accomplish with their verbal assaults and very practical strategies to diffuse potentially explosive situations. This is the kind of clear advice that a parent like me (read: a parent who struggles to keep it cool) can immediately put into action. I'm very grateful to have found this book.
A very helpful and insightful book on how deal with Tweens and Teens and their crazy, un-avoidable ways. I found the science interesting on why teens act the way they do. It helps parents to understand the inner workings of their child's mind and helps give strategies in how to lead their teen down the right paths of decision making, responsibility taking, etc. while keeping their relationship in tact.
