Book Reviews

1.Anthony E. Wolf, Ph.D., author of Get Out of My Life, but First Could You Drive Me and Cheryl to the Mall?

“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 very practical – real-world answers for real parents and real teenagers.”

2.Foster W. Cline, M.D., author of Parenting with Love and Logic

“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!”

3.Thomas W. Phelan, Ph.D., author of 1-2-3 Magic and Surviving Your Adolescents

“An excellent combination of research and practice-with a difficult population! Good practical ideas that help parents answer hard questions.”

4.John Gray, Ph.D., author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus and Children Are from Heaven

“For all parents who want good, immediately applicable ideas that are effective with acting-out teenagers, this is the book for you!”

5.Rex Forehand, Ph.D., author of Parenting the Strong-Willed Child

“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.”

6.Library Journal, a Trade Publication

“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.”
