I thought I was not going to like it but I found myself not wanting to put it down. I have a 20 year old and a 13 year old. Reading this book made me see my mistakes in my approach with the older one, and I immediately modified behaviors and tactics with my 13 YO.
The book covers mental disorder in teens and young adults and what types of behaviors attribute to it. I have kidded with friends that this book should have been names "Why is my kid an @$$hole". While it does shed light on why, a lot, it turns out is parenting tactics.
I recommend this book to anyone with teens, toddlers & families planning to have kids. Even people without kids will benefit from this book. I have learned so much from this book. Not sure how I stumbled onto this book. I think it was a suggestion or an update I saw on goodreads.com.
