The introduction and first chapter of a book tell the reader what to expect and how a book will be set up (particularly in a nonfiction work). I found the first chapter to be disorganized, obtuse, and scattered.

The introduction and first chapter of a book tell the reader what to expect and how a book will be set up (particularly in a nonfiction work). There were paragraphs that appeared to be answering questions that hadn’t been asked (. The answer is X, and when I went back and read the previous paragraph, it was about a totally different topic). I disagree with some of the content and conclusions (but recognize that I didn’t read the whole book).

  • I had planned on purchasing this book - boy am I glad that I checked it out at the library and began reading portions of it first! I learned many "interesting" things, such as: it's normal for all kids to hate their parents, most fathers or father figures have to repress their sexual feelings toward tween girls in their lives, it's normal for my tween to masturbate regularly and I should not be at all concerned, my tween will want to be with friends more than family and if I do not allow that I am repressing her natural development, tweens pretty much need to be left alone and not disciplined as this could hamper their growth toward independence, it's normal and acceptable for tween girls to dress sexy like young woman, and I am pretty much neglecting my tween if they do not have a cell phone. Wow! Not to mention all of the British jargon that was very confusing. I was very disappointed in the content of this book, especially for a woman who seemingly has 30 years of experience counseling children. She seems to be trying to impose her personal philosophy and views upon the masses. I would recommend Talking to Tweens by Elizabeth Hartley-Brewer, another British woman who seems to be able to write with more knowledge of child development, wisdom, and understanding. I really enjoyed the book and will probably read it several more times. I also recommendTalking to Tweens: Getting It Right Before It Gets Rocky with Your 8- to 12-Year-Old her books Praising Girls Well, Praising Boys Well, Raising Confident Girls, and Raising Confident Boys.

  • This is a well-written and clear book. I had been wondering about the whole "tween" talk in parenting circles. I hadn't understood why I was seeing some teen behavior in my nine year old child while she was still playing with toys. This book really laid out this transitional stage for me and in turn is helping me to better mother my daughter through this.

    There is solid child development understanding backing this book, and none of the bad attitude or pop psychology that is rampant in most books on tweens.

  • This author is clearly quite experienced in her field and accepting of people as imperfect. While some reviewers have rated this book low because it includes things they don't like to think about, that doesn't make those things go away. They are part of being human. This author avoids nothing, and speaks plainly about accepting those parts of ourselves and our tweens that make us fragile. Her analyses build a foundation for understanding our tweens and helping them understand themselves. The book translates the author's sensitive observations into practical information. We readers only need to be human enough to apply it to our own families.
