I browsed through the first 2/3rd and then read the last 3rd of the book that gives sound parental actions.

I really enjoyed this book. It is very informative. I find myself quoting and referring to this book often whether I am doing so as a parent, as a mentor to middle school mentees, as a aunt to my teen neice and nephew or as a life coach to other parents. Excellent source of information in dealing with troubled teens.
This book takes one back to the basics of parenting teens in an easy to read style. Though there were some theories that didn't resonate for me, overall, Mike Linderman's thoughts were sound. A good read for parent's who need some tips outside of what they may already do.
Teens need help and with keen eyes and mind along with empathy, there are a lot of ways to help them through the struggles of these years. Nicely describes teen needs: survival, freedom, fun, power and belonging.
Well this one was mostly for work and I learned that I already tell parents of teenagers the right way to do things so it only gets a 3. Could be good training for the book I am getting ready to write...
Very interesting book - I would recommend for anyone who is going to have a teenager soon or has one already.
reality therapy....for teens...good examples to frame it for applicablity
Pretty readable; nothing earthshattering.
