Just Say NO!


You Can Say No to Your Teenager
And other Strategies for Effective Parenting in the 1990′s

Gotta love the parenting books.   We have featured a couple of parenting books here and here .   I do like the featured “problem” of wearing black.  The second has more potential but I can save all the parents a ton of time reading these books with the following advice:  Don’t negotiate with terrorists and carry a gun. (Humorless reader alert: I am kidding and I am a survivor of teens so I get to say this!)

Looking forward to empty nest syndrome,

This comes from a favorite blog of mine. As I understand it, this blog is run by a librarian for librarians. I am not a librarian. But I can appreciate some of the awful books that are posted on the site and this book is no exception.

Echoing the original post, I love the two examples from the back cover. The confirmation scenario probably has not changed much and I am sure many Catholic parents have faced similar. The second scenario hits a bit closer to home. No I was never busted drunk at 14 but I do have plenty of party experience and have rehearsed this in my mind and frankly there would be more that a loss of privileges once the child in question is out of medical danger.

I think Dr. Gregory Popcak should opine on this book.
