Might be helpful but....

Biggest load of poorly done scripted nonsense ever.
It's ridiculous to think that this is a real life account of a parent group where parents vent, learn new techniques that apply to their exact situations, try them out and come back with successful results. If the theory being presented is actually worth a damn, which I suspect it actually is, then lay out the theory and give some instructions. Trying to pass this off as how a parent group in this day and age worked through problems degrades the actual message and theory as irrelevant. Each chapter could be summed up in 2-3 sentences, add 2-3 lines of example, and give 2-3 sentences to sum up the general affect on the child. Done.

Felt like I was being talked down to

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would make it more informational and not a story. I would also have it read by someone other than the authors.

Has How to Talk So Teens Will Listen and Listen So Teens Will Talk turned you off from other books in this genre?

I did not need a story to learn the concepts.

How could the performance have been better?

The authors were trying to act and it was so unbelievable it turned me off.

Good basic info and somewhat motivational but....

It will make you feel like it is possible to interact with your teen in a more positive way.

I will finish this book, and I am sure I will even listen more than once so that I can apply some worthy ideas and techniques. But the reviews that say the authors were 'trying to act' and that they felt they were being 'talked down to,' those reviews were spot on. The narration is a turn off, unfortunately. Overblown phrasing when a nice simple reading would have conveyed the information so much better, and I don't hate accents but their accents are annoying. I'll listen in spurts!

Got Teens?

Raising teenagers is a huge challenge in every way, but particularly with respect to communication. This invaluable book gives excellent pratical suggestions on how to communicate with your teen in all of the critical areas. Based on decades of experience, the two authors share their useful techniques and ideas. It is a resource I listen to over and over.

5 Stars all the way

This was a fabulous book, chocked full of very specific details and directions on how to do what she is telling you to do. A lot of what she had to say I had already learned form other material that I have, but I will say even though I already had heard most of what she had to teach in this book (all wonderful, incredible, fabulous things by the way) she did give me many a light bulb moment and helped me to see where I could and should be using these skills more! This should be a 5 star book for any one else in need of a little parenting advice or help as long as you can ignore the voice! LOL

The authors are terrible at narration!

What would have made How to Talk So Teens Will Listen and Listen So Teens Will Talk better?

Use the book for facts and helpful advice rather than a play by play story of their visit to a high school to give a workshop. Hire professional narrator, the authors are terrible at narrating. To get the best info, just read their How to Talk so Teens will Listen and Listen So Teens Will Talk

What do you think your next listen will be?

I will try another book by this author as long as they are not the narrator!

How could the performance have been better?

Get a professional narrator and use facts rather than stories.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from How to Talk So Teens Will Listen and Listen So Teens Will Talk?

The book is written like a play in which the author reads all characters but in different annoying voices.

Any additional comments?

I could not take another minute of listening to the author narrate the book. I returned the audio for my money back.

Book was ok and provided good general guidance

Good techniques, but examples were "rigged". The author(s) would run through two examples one before the techniques were applied and one after.

In the examples without techniques, the teenagers were belligerent, defiant, and smart asses. In the examples with the techniques there was some of the same teenage activity, but they quickly complied, which I just found hard to believe.

Although the examples seem poor, the techniques do have use and can improve things. I suspect that there are things out there that are better, but until I find it, these are not that bad. I'd say C+ or 3/5.

Also, author(s) were very slow to talk. I started trying to listen at 1.25.

Thank you!

Although I do realize that in the end my teens will make their own decisions, this book has reminded me that to influence we must respect and listen first. Thank you!

Fantastic!

Wonderful insight and guidance. I really enjoyed and appreciated how she viewed both parents and teens perspectives. I highly recommend this if you have, or will soon have, teens.
