Inspired by the revolutionary bestseller Toughlove®, a guide to help parents discipline their children with love and consistency
Toughlove® was an international bestseller and one of the first guidebooks for parents of extremely troubled teens.

He also incorporates a new, four-step program for you to reach out to your teens.
