If life with your teen has become a battleground, it's time to take action. This empathic book shows how. Trusted psychologists who have worked with thousands of families give you the tools you need to overcome defiance and get teen behavior back on track. By following the authors' clinically proven 10-step program, learn how you can:

  • Reestablish your authority while building trust.
  • Identify and enforce nonnegotiable rules.
  • Use rewards and incentives that work.
  • Communicate and problem-solve effectively - even in the heat of the moment.
  • Restore positive feelings in your relationship.
  • Develop your teen's skills for becoming a successful adult.

Vivid stories and answers to frequently asked questions help you put the techniques into action. The updated second edition incorporates new scientific research on why some teens have more problems with self-control than others.

Must Read! Helping is with young and old kids

I'm very pleased with all the takeaways from this book. Obviously, I will have to put them into effect in order to know how well they work. But, we have already started using a behavior contract and a reward system and it really has changed the behavior of our kids, especially my 8-year-old. I'm happy to be nipping some of the teenage behaviors I see in her. I'm hoping this will help us avoid many of the teenage issues that I'm dealing with with my other children. with my older son, the reward system is working well. I don't think I have ever realized how little we treat our home environment like the real world. we often use consequences from The real world but not rewards. I love this train of thought. thanks for the help and I definitely recommend this to anybody with any age child who is having behavioral issues.

I enjoy listening to the book, It has lots of clever ideas and advice to try with my kiddo.
great reminders for parents to also work on our communication issues ...
A lot of advice might be required to actually print or take notes as the book has questionares... got to see if the links work
