20 Rules Every Parent Must Know to Survive  Aug 18, 2005
Dr. Leman's book is a down-to-earth handbook for parents navigating the difficult waters of adolescence. He doesn't mince words, and he backs up his advice with studies and his own experience as a family counselor. I found his advice right on the mark for dealing with my 14-year-old as well as my 12-year-old, although they have very different personalities. I bought a copy for future reference after reading the library's copy and loaning it to several friends. Those library fines can really add up!
 
adolescence isn't terminal  Jun 29, 2005
They were handing these books out for the parents at my old school so I decided to read it.
First of all, Kevin Leman seems to be a very conservitive republican. He says you should read your kids the Bible to show them that God wants them to wait until marrage for sex. This is not called "A Guidebook for Christian Parents," so I'm sure that people of many other religions are reading this book. Also, if kids want to have sex, parents telling them not to is not going to stop them. If you tell them just not to do it, they will go at it anyways without any protection.
In another part of the book, he says that a divorce can cause girls to sexually mature faster. What he is suggesting is to not get divorced. What he did not mention, however, was the effects that fighting parents can have on children.
He seems to think that all teenagers are ashamed of their parents and will not listen to them just because it is the parents that are telling them to do things. Can you get any more steroetypical? I'm sure if any teen saw their parents reading a book that all it does is describe teens they would be furious. This is because NOT ALL TEENS ARE THE SAME!!!! Just because we are under the age of 21 does not mean we all have a little conference and plan how we are all going to act the same way and make our parents miserable.
For the good of your children, do not buy this book. Remember they are individuals!!!! And just for the record, his "humor" is pathetic!
I know I am going to get negative feedback, and I understand because there are the arguments that I am only a teenager myself so I don't understand things about raising one. But I hope that you try to understand my views because, after all, this book is about people like me.
 
Every parent needs this book!!  Jul 24, 2004
I checked this out from the library and it was such a wonderful resource I am now ordering a copy to keep!!
 
An Absolute Must for Parents  Dec 25, 2002
Way to go Dr. Leman!
This book is chock full of research, practice, case studies and empirical wisdom that every parent should tap into.
Want to get along with your teen or tween? Do you want to evolve from an "uncool parent" to being a respected support system your kid(s) can count on? This book is for you.
With an easy, to read format you can change your relationship with your child within minutes of your first browse through.
Great investment!
 
Wit, Widom & Reality  Nov 17, 2002
Kevin Leman provides a great resource for parents of teens. Its chapter summaries, the twenty rules parents must know and the Teenager's Ten Commandments to Parents are useful quick-read reminders for reference even after reading the book. Dr. Leman presents the material with humor and insight using real experiences from his life and professional practice. Parents will feel strengthened by reading this book.
