I had a 15 yr old daughter who became very disrespectful and angry at the world.. This book was recommended to me by Sister Joyce, who was teaching school at the time.. The concepts of this book were so easy to grasp and an eye opener to me.. it was a treasure to our relationship.. we are now very close and not a day goes by that she doesn't call and chatter.. IT WORKS!!
I got this book as a required reading for an Intro to Psychology class. While it appears to be your typical, cheesy self-help books, it is far from it! This is one of the best books I have ever read. The techniques described are absolutely effective and full of wisdom! I have lent it to many of my friends and finally gave it to one...now I have to buy another copy so I can continue to be a library for it. There wasn't a single point with which I did not agree...and that just doesn't happen. :) I would suggest it to any one who has kids in their lives (yes, that includes aunties and uncles..and friends)
