I almost bailed on this one. It started out with a very narrow definition of "normal" teen behavior, but it got better as it went along. Her approach to parenting teens is similar to my parenting philosophy, which is reassuring. The chapter on sex is especially good (I have not been feeling prepared to address texting, the internet, and social media vis-a-vis teen sexuality). I've put a hold on the book-book to share with my spouse.
