Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
All of us need to improve our role as parents. We need to examine our characteristics of nurturing, which might include the whole question of affection for our children, consistency of discipline, our own self-confidence as parents, and an understanding of our vital role. We need to question the esteem that parents hold for each other and for the other members of the family. The reasonableness of the demands we place on our children, their supervision, recognising and helping them deal with the powerful influence of peer pressure, and remembering from our own experience the turbulence of adolescence, will help them through these difficult years. The authors of this delightful, 'must read' book have provided an invaluable 'life-jacket' waterproofed with liberal doses of sagacity and humour, reinforced by an abundance of commonsense. This should be not only sufficient to enable parents to survive the teenage years, but even better, to live long enough to see those teenagers with children of their own.
