My sister has three children (15, 12, 10). She relied on spanking when they were little and now doesn't have effective strategies to deal with them as the age. Can you recommend any books that are GD for Teens/Middleschoolers? She is having an issue with the younger one being a bully probably for attention seeking. She will read and believe books so I plan to send her one or two. I have two little kids, so I'd like to know what has worked well for you.<br>
Thanks!

I think <span style="text-decoration:underline;">How To Talk So Kids Will Listen</span>... by Faber and Mazlish is a great book for parents of any age children. It is very straight forward, and has clear examples of why certain styles of communication are better than others. A really good book for those new to GD.<br><br>
I have also read <span style="text-decoration:underline;">Hold On To Your Kids</span>, and that one might be good to send her as well, if you plan on sending two.
