This guide to raising, supporting, and managing a daughter through the pitfalls of adolescence will help parents better understand and communicate with their teen. Based in part on a curriculum developed by Wiseman, the book explains everything from development and cliques to boyfriends, lying, and the struggle for independence. Lee Adams reads the work with authority and tough-love, encouraging parents to be accountable as both disciplinarians and guides to adulthood. While 12 hours of parenting advice may seem like overkill, Wiseman delivers useful information, including the girl's perspective on parental responses. Adams presents these in the easily recognizable tone of the frustrated teen, even nailing the teenage mantra of "What-ever--" Adams makes this a highly educational and entertaining package.
