I truly enjoyed this book not only from the perspective of a parent but also a teacher and mentor. It was a very easy read but is very detailed. I don’t normally care for non-fiction books, but this one is amazing. This book kept my attention and I didn’t want to put it down. Gary Chapman wrote in a very loving tone and also caused me to reflect on my relationship with my pre-teen.
Also, Chapman only repeats or emphasizes those areas that he wants parents to really focus. This is a handbook to be utilized often. I would recommend that individuals put aside their set way of thinking and open their mind to this great resource.
Overall, I enjoyed reading this book. I selected it to review because I wanted to understand my son’s stages of development and why he responds different now that he is almost a teenager. This book answered many questions for me.
I gave the book 5/5 stars, and I would recommend it to all individuals that interact with teenagers. You will not be disappointed.
