Trying to Stay Sane Book Reviews

My book, Trying to Stay Sane While Raising Your Teen was featured (read and reviewed) last week at the World Literary Cafe:

Here’s a review from (Thanks Bella!)

Trying to Stay Sane While Raising Your Teen by C. Lynn Williams is a short primer with advice on child rearing techniques for parents during the challenging teen years. The book is written with humor and abundant examples on ways to work with teenaged children. As a psychologist, I heartily agree with many of her comments on communication between child and parent. I also found the section on blended families sensitive and helpful.

Ms. Williams also describes her personal need to involve a dialogue with God while facing some of the more overwhelming decisions she needed to make with her children. She reinforces this approach with multiple biblical references at the end of the primer. Although some readers may not be comfortable with this inclusion in the primer, it is reasonable to assume that parents don’t always have the answers they need and may take comfort in advice from another source! Of course as a psychologist, I would also recommend consulting a professional when parents are at a loss when confronting serious issues with a teen.
