Great Book Nov 19, 2003
I am a student in Mr. Saso's class, and my parents have read his book. Mr. Saso is an excellent author, and an even better teacher. I highly reccomend this book to any parents, because Mr. Saso honestly listens to teens, and he respects our advice and input. Mr. Saso doesnt speculate and guess about the best way to raise teens, he goes straight to the source. Buy this book, you wont be dissapointed.

Important Read for Parents of Teens Apr 6, 2000
Well written, organized, and an important read for frustrated parents trying to do the best they can. It's a bittersweet time watching my son go through this stage in his life. "10 Best Gifts..." has helped me realize that his moody, sulking, "Aw Mom!", "Whatever!" moments should not be taken too personally. The kid who used to love his mom to pieces probably still does. And now, more than ever, he needs me to be on top of my parenting skills. This book will give you the strength and wisdom to do just that.
A great Parenting Tool Apr 4, 2000
The Sasos have written a terrific guide for parents wading through the muddy waters of raising teens. As a high school guidance counselor, I have recommended this book to many parents, and have had great response both from the parents and their teens. A great way to narrow down the point of conversation with your teen and make some mutually agreeable progress. Teens feel respected by the way this book characterizes their needs. Parents feel supported in their need to find common ground with their teens. I highly recommend this book to anyone who works with teens.
A Teacher's Perspective Mar 22, 2000
If you want to know something about raising teens, read this book! Patt and Steve Saso have written a wise and perceptive guide for parents who are trying to maintain loving and vital relationships with their teen-aged children. As a teacher of high-school students for the past 15 years, I have been asked to read and evaluate dozens of books which attempt to "explain" the behavior of adolescents or provide a means of "controlling" what they do. The Sasos have made it clear that these attempts will always fail because they miss the point. With many examples gleaned from long experience, they show convincingly that our task as parents and teachers is not to control but, rather, to do the sometimes painful work of building solid relationships with young persons based on respect and nurtured over time with love and care. There is no other way. For the honesty and truth in this book, I thank them.
