What I thought of it:
As parents of teens, we sometimes feel that we have done what we can, and throw up our hands in defeat too easily when faced with new behaviours and needs. But this South African parenting book poses a challenge to that attitude. Through various case histories, the authors create believable scenarios for parents, and provide solutions that aim to explain the behavioural and developmental changes our teens face.
The unusual chapter structure is based on the months of the year, adding a pleasant feel of the many rhythms that drive our teens - and us - to behave the way we do. Worth reading if you are looking for a fresh persepctive no what is happening in your teen's body and mind.
