Review of Tough Guys and Drama Queens

Tough Guys and Drama Queens How Not to Get Blindsided by Your Child's Teen Years

by Mark Gregston starts out with reasons why today children do not respond to correctness the way previous generation respond to it.  The saying “it is my way or the highway” just does not work with todays’ children. We are in a sad state with children of this generation not respecting and not taking the correction and to do the right thing.  Unfortunately this book states that information comes at the children fast and hard in today world, so they have problems just processing it all and knowing what is right and wrong.

The good news is that the book has several ways to help parents navigate these new waters of parenting.  The biggest one that stood out for me was building a relationship with the children. This takes time and some patience of the parents’ part but in the end can have great results. This book will help me with my children now and the coming years.
