I am so glad this has been updated to reflect the 1970s. I am sure it will come in handy for the kids entering Middle School/Junior High in 2012. All the big names are here: Freud, Piaget, and Kohlberg. This has lots of academic overtones and some decent advice, but it is quoting alcohol and drug statistics from the late 60s.
I am quite certain that any modern parenting information about teens and pre-teens must have a technology component in the advice presented. Although this book is supposed to include teens in its audience, there is very little for them. It’s a weeder for a public library and possibly a keeper for an academic/archive collection.
