Review by Library Journal (2011-09-01)

Parents either adore psychologist and humorist Leman or find his many books repetitive. Following his New York Times best-selling Have a New Kid by Friday, the author here expands the same basic message for parents of teens: have a sense of humor, say it once and walk away, act rather than react. Parents should be neither authoritarian nor permissive, he advises; they should teach (and demand) respect. A father and grandfather and a person of strong faith, Leman is blunt ("If you do battle with your teenager, you will lose every time") and loving ("Love them despite what they do"). Interspersed in each chapter are anecdotes from readers under the heading "It Worked for Me" and hundreds of tips, called "lifesavers".

Verdict: The author of over 35 books, Leman appears on TV talk shows and has a huge following. That said, this is the same message, though geared for parents of teens, that we've read before. Sure to be in demand.
