HAVE A NEW TEENAGER BY FRIDAY From Mouthy and Moody to Respectful and Responsible in 5 Days

by | Read by Kirby Heyborne

Personal Growth • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Kevin Leman’s conversational writing works well for his empowering message: With thoughtful changes and a lot of patience, parents can influence frustrating teenage behavior like belligerence, entitlement, and dangerous carelessness. Though Kirby Heyborne has turned in superb performances with similar titles, his youthful vocal energy is a no-show in this uniformly flat reading. His slow pace isn’t the problem; it’s that his syllables unfold with the regularity of a metronome, a delivery style that sounds at odds with the upbeat advice and anecdotes that make Leman’s ideas so helpful. The inspiring author is particularly good at showing how parents often slide into passive or even cowed parenting habits. He offers realistic approaches that are calm and engaging.
