Summary, etc.: When children and teenagers are at their best, it is easy to enjoy them, teach them, live with them and appreciate them. However, when they are defiant, argumentative or withdrawn, it is easy to get wound up, to argue back, threaten, nag and shout. If this sounds like the situation in your house, then Calmer, Easier, Happier Parenting is for you.
