    It is my strong sense when I interact with parents that many have no idea about the changes that occur in children at the onset of teenage. And hence they handle situations and altercations badly, thereby affecting relationships in the long run. This book by Dr. Abdul Bari has been written with such a sense of calm that anyone who reads it will have a clear idea of how to approach teenagers and how to manage them as they go through life’s big changes. A guide that is a must read for all parents…Know what you are getting yourself into…There is no better ammunition than preparation 🙂
