Divided into three parts – awareness, acceptance, and action – the book throws light on the roadmap for parenting the teens.

With lucid writing and a simplistic approach, the book delivers the outline of what it means to un-judge your teenager. Alongside this, it covers a few experiences of the author that give the authentic touch to the content. It is good for an introductory knowledge of the crucial subject of parenting and could be read by the parents of teenagers.
