This is a must read for parents with children of any age but especially for those with children heading into the teenage years. The premise is clear from the title, but it's packed with strategies for how to actually practice that hard advice of holding firm.

It's common sense advice, and the chapters about raising children in the early years was affirming. But as my children near adolescence, I'm less confident about my parenting skills. I can see already that it's going to get harder (and harder!) There are practical suggestions and scripts for how to handle a variety of issues: Media awareness, Money, Peer relations, Curfew, School and issues with teachers, and more.
