Review:

"For all parents who want good, immediately applicable ideas that are effective with acting-out teenagers, this is the book for you!" --John Gray, Ph.D., author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus and Children Are from Heaven

"An excellent combination of research and practice-with a difficult population! Good practical ideas that help parents answer hard questions." --Thomas W. Phelan, Ph.D., author of 1-2-3 Magic and Surviving Your Adolescents

"Parents of problematic teens will find Parenting Your Out-of-Control Teenager to be an easy-to-read book filled with practical solutions for difficult problems." --Rex Forehand, Ph.D., author of Parenting the Strong-Willed Child

"A standout among the multitude of parenting books. Dr. Sells has a rare combination of practical experience coupled with an academician's need for researched and effective answers for responding to very difficult teens. For all those parents who want good, immediately applicable ideas that are effective with a severely acting-out adolescent, I can say, without reservations, this is the book for you!" --Foster W. Cline, M.D., author of Parenting with Love and Logic

"Sells' approach is all 'how-to': he provides seven basic steps, backed up with lists of strategies in the 'What do I do if...' mode. These steps will empower parents to regain authority, bring families out of deep trouble, and begin to restore the love parents and teens once held for each other." --Library Journal

"I found Scott Sells' new book to be amazingly helpful. He really does go to exactly those most difficult places where teenagers step over the line, and where there seem to be few effective answers. Dr. Sells gives answers, they are very specific, and they are vry practical - real-world answers for real parents and real teenagers." --Anthony E. Wolf, Ph.D., author of Get Out of My Life, but First Could You Drive Me and Cheryl to the Mall?
