really liked it

I accidentally got this book from the library (meant to check out the How to Hug a Porcupine original book) but I thought I'd read a few chapters because one of my dd's is approaching the tween years. I was pleasantly surprised to find this book was so well written with lots of great ideas about how to communicate with your children (spouse too, I think). There were a few major lightbulb moments for me that have changed the way I think about some important things. Chapters on a lot of the things you will encounter - hormones/mood swings, disorganization, lack of motivation, defiance, peer pressure, and the Internet, as well as how to talk about sex and drugs. I'd definitely recommend it.
