Every week my inbox is flooded with parenting books to review all with a common theme: Our kids are in a desperate state and need immediate intervention. R. Bradley Snyder's book, The 5 Simple Truths of Raising Kids takes away the dread and replaces it with hopefulness and humor.
The good news? Our tweens and teens are in pretty good shape (arguably in a better spot than my peers in Generation X). Snyder cuts through the hyperbole of modern statistics to and gives parents tangible takeaways.
I'm better prepared for the tween years that I'm facing having been able to discern fact from sensational headline. This doesn't mean parents have a free ride, but it does mean we're not in a cataclysmic situation. With care and attention, Snyder gives parents the tools they need to guide their kids through these years.
