Amist chaos, it tells you how to gently stick up for yourself , while putting the teenager/unruly person down 'over there'. Lifesaver. Parenting Group run by United Way uses it as their Guide.

Funny how I decided to read this now - could have used it more a year ago. I found much of its advice good - separating issues into things that affect the kid’s life only and things that affect my life is good, and something I feel I’ve done and it has helped. I think the book could stand to focus a bit more on the parent having some compassion for the child in pain - for me, keeping my love up front and remembering to show it, even on trying days, was a big step forward.

This is a really simple and smart book. The ideas are useful for any person you have a relationship with, not just your children.
