To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I couldn’t get on with the style of this book - too long winded for what I was after. I would have preferred to be able to look up specific scenarios eg Too much gaming and see what conversations could be had on that topic to seek a change in behaviour.
this book is amazing! I have a teen daughter (with adhd) and the time I have spent reading this book has potentially saved me hours and hours of arguing and repeated disagreements. I started trying out the techniques suggested on day one, chapter one. I noticed a difference immediately. I couldn't believe it. It is now my go to book, to top up and remind myself how to deal with situations from time to time. I just wish I'd found it sooner. Time reading this book is an investment in the quality of your life and a few giggles along the way. You realise you're not alone in this parenting world. I hope that this review is helpful.
Some really helpful tips and very easy to read. Really helpful cartoons that exemplify things. It shows just how altering the way you say something can make such a difference - communication with teens is so precious that it's a shame to muck a chance up just by using an off-putting or accusatory turn of phrase when you were actually trying to help.
Yes - this is definitely the book I needed to help me understand my 2 pre-teenage girls. I will keep it to hand for the coming years! It is good at pointing out the positives and getting the 'dramas' into perspective. A great self-help guide without giving direct advice and what to do in each and every situation.
Again another purchase to help my son and daughter in law understand their teenage daughter, no body is a perfect parent but reading this little book helped them understand more about being a teenager today
OK, the tone can be a bit patronising so if you are of a cynical bent you may not make it past page one, but it's actually full of easy-to-follow and effective ideas. Basically a re-hash of the "kids" version but both are good.
