The author has covered just about every type you can imagine." - Five-Star Review from GHF
"This book is loaded with sensible information about raising your teenager. When I was raising my two children, a book like this one would have been very helpful. As it was, several of us mothers of teenagers would get together and share our stories hoping to find answers for our frustrations of raising our children. No two teenagers are alike and this book covers most of them; a very good read!" - Ruth, Amazon Reader Review
