Parents teens and boundaries Oct 20, 2008
This is a good book although I wouldnt use some of the things I still think it will be helpful
Helpful advice Oct 13, 2008
I have a 17 year old son whose mercurial tempers and selfishness make Kim Jong Il look like a nice guy in comparison. I don't normally turn to self help books but felt I needed some perspective on how my once adorable son could now be at times so awful. This book achieved that, in that it gave some useful pointers on how to manage teenagers and most importantly helped me direct my thinking about the issues in a very focused way. It will not cure the situation but it does help to reinforce your confidence and hopefully avoid some tension along the way!
For good parents Sep 19, 2008
Before my kids hit their teens, I thought that only bad parents had trouble with their teenagers. All parents of teens will be out there laughing at this thought -- including me. Dr. Bluestein's book is practical, respectful of both teens and parents, and realistic. She gives sensible ideas about setting boundaries in ways that don't lead to strife or focus on parental emotions. My advice: read this book before your kids reach their teens, so you'll have the skills you need and the family dynamic you want when the time comes. Dr. Bluestein has a website at [...] where you can read articles and excerpts and hear her podcasts. I listened, and then I could hear her comforting, down-to-earth voice while I read her book. It was like having a wise friend there with me -- something parents of teens can really use.
Would Not Buy Dec 6, 2005
Not helpful for me. It contained mostly definitions of terms, no useful follow thru information. Other books I have found are more percise.
Author of Survival Meditations for Parents of Teens Sep 25, 2005
I have been a therapist in private practice for over twenty years working mostly with teens and their parents. This book is very well written, and I would recommend it to struggling parents. Setting limits and finding the strength to set them, with today's demanding teen takes work! Ms. Bluestein shows us how.
