Michelle's insight and knowledge about teenagers and their experiences are invaluable for parents. Her ideas are practical and sensible while being loving and understanding - the perfect mix for parenting today's teenage girls. I highly recommend Michelle's expertise to parents who are embarking on these challenging years. Carmel NashExecutive Director - Queensland Parents & Friends Federation, Catholic Education Michelle has a way of telling parents how it is, why it is and what to do about it! This practical empowerment guide is essential reading for every parent with teens and pre-teens, especially girls. The passion poured into this book should be enough to get every parent inspired to not just survive, but thrive through the Twilight Zone years! Dr Robi SondereggerHumanitarian Activist and Clinical Psychologist In her new book Michelle delivers a timely reminder that we are entering an unprecedented phase of adolescent turmoil. Never before have young people had such power in their hands yet often lacking the cognitive maturity to make appropriate decisions. Parents can no longer afford to sit on the technological sidelines with their child's moral and intellectual integrity at stake. Drawing on many years of personal experience Michelle offers parents many clear, relevant and proven insights to guide their teenagers through these uncharted waters. The time to up-skill has arrived and this book will provide timely reassurance for anxious parents everywhere.Dale DearmanHead of Student Support, Grace Lutheran College I stand in awe of Michelle's incredible energy, passion and relentless desire to empower our girls. Her latest book contains real life stories, relevant advice and researched facts that will assist parents in the roller coast ride of parenting a teenager. As a mother of girls and a women's health care professional for over twenty years, Michelle's book is one you do not want to miss. Karen SpatuzzoRegistered Nurse / Mother of Teenage Girls I have read a lot of parenting books that made me feel that we were maybe doing things wrong, maybe not doing enough or even possibly doing too much. Michelle's book was different. I found myself nodding the whole time. At times, I read with a lump in my throat thinking, "We aren't the only ones and we are doing lots of things right!" I also picked up a lot of insightful tips and strategies I could put to use straight away and some I have stored away for when I might need them (hopefully I never need them!!!)Stephanie FosterParent of three
