This book is very close to How to talk so kids will listen and listen so kids will talk , only focused on the teenager, following what Faber and Mazlish (the authors) had to do when they were asked to organize workshops with teens’ parents.
We find the same basic skills (especially in the early chapters) but with examples and developments more suitable to teenage years.
I found it was a good way to open up our horizons and begin using our new skills with our oldest.
