Timely information for my family Nov 28, 2002
This book came at a critical time in the life of one of our children. I couldn't understand where the anger was coming from. This book provided us not only some background on possible sources of the anger, but more importantly, how we can best deal with the consequences for our child and the rest of the family as well. I would highly recommend this book to any parent with teenage children!
