Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as Boundaries in Marriage I read Boundaries in Marriage many years ago, and loved it. It helped me to identify the abuse I was experiencing in my marriage and I will never forget some of the lessons it taught me. Maybe it's because of that that I found this book to be only so-so. I found that the advice was pretty common sense, and not really helpful in my situation. Unfortunately, my daughter has inherited a lot of her father's traits/disorders and so dealing with her is a lot trickier than I think this book expects most teens to be. I did appreciate the one lesson, given early on in the book, to not just give up and wait til they move out, but to try to keep in mind that the lessons and discipline/boundaries you try to instill now will some day be of more benefit to them than giving up and doing nothing would be. I've recently been recommended another book, Stop Walking on Eggshells, which I think might be better suited to our situation.
