Cover to Cover!

ImageSeriously… I read this book cover to cover. Usually when I pick up a parenting book I skip around and find what I need.

“Do I get my allowance before or after I’m grounded?” by Vanessa Van Petten was one of the most engaging parenting books I’ve read. I love how she speaks to parents on their level (ok, my level). The book isn’t clinical and gives real solutions for realistic problems that families with teens have. From school, to lying, to drugs and alcohol there are talking points for families as well as personal challenges at the end of each chapter.

My favorite part is how to tell if your teen is lying.  The book gives great tools to interpret your teens’ body language.

Watch out kids!  I’ve got some new tools!
