The perfect stocking stuffer. Dec 17, 2006
Be a Parent, Not a Pushover is an incredibly insightful and informative book. Dr. Rosenthal has done an excellent job of explaining the scientific reasons why teen behavior can change and then outlines a practical and sensible strategy to deal with these changes. This book provides the tools that every parent needs to enjoy a healthy relationship with their children.
I highly recommend this book to parents of all ages.
A "Must Read" for Parents of Teens Jan 1, 2004
As a parent of two teens (son-13, daughter-15) in a "blended" family situation, this book is a welcome relief. Dr. Rosenthal has done a terrific job of describing what is happening in your teen's life; why he/she has suddenly become a stranger to you and, most importantly, what you need to do about it now.
The book is very well-organized and written with warmth and humor in a style which is user-friendly without being simplistic. I highly recommend this book.
