Mom says:
I was surprised when I read "Crap" that it
didn't stink! ( Booo Boooo, I know I know) Okay, for real now.
I was impressed. it was a good book. It was packed full of
lots of useful information jammed with cute little jokes
and quirky definitions tossed in between segments to break
up the monotony. There quips were even funny unlike my own.
It taught them how to deal with out ignoring a problem all together.
It also taught them how to tell the difference from an issue that
matters and should be taken to heart and one they might
be blowing out of proportion. I really liked the fact in encouraged
them to think their feelings were right and justified without
using another person as a crutch or excuse to shoulder the
blame. There were not right or wrong answers in the book
and not a clear cut map on how to handle things but more
like a general theory and easy to understand strategy's that
can be manipulated to fit any problem. Even an adults.
The only thing I did not like is that I feel it is meant more for
pre-teen and not full fledged I have my wings now 14 and up.
The tone is too airy and the subjects to light for a 16 year old
who believes the World is out to get them to relate to. My 16
year old is reading it now but after I read it I think I would have
been better off letting the 12 year old. That would have been a
perfect fit and we might have avoided her having the
attitude the 16 year old now has. I do believe the theory's will
work if the person ready is not already so tainted they will give
them a chance.

Teen says:
Okay, it took me a few weeks to read it but it
wasn't because I didn't like the book it was because Mom
told me it was like a self help job and Pleaseeeeeee, what
a pain. I was hoping for some thrillers or even a classic to
review and she tossed this at me. She rode my butt to I
opened it and I wish I had before she started driving me nuts
for I might have dealt with it better. The book was good, it
had a lot of tips that really worked. Some I already knew but
it was cool to see them on Paper to be reminded. Other's I
had never thought of and it did help me to pick and choose
what I got all worked up about. Sometimes people are stupid
and you have to deal ya know? I am glad she made me read
it for I am not as annoyed at her now as I was a week ago. I
suggest though that you just leave it in the car or something
for your kid to read when they are bored to find out they like
it for if I hadn't agreed to help my Mom do reviews in the
first place I never would have looked at it for it was her
idea but if we were driving somewhere or another place
where my options were to talk to my Parents or read I
would have picked it up on my own. Good Book is
my say so!

What next?
