    This is so worth buying!

    Joanne Fedler’s Love in the Time of Contempt is like sittiing down with your best friend over a glass of something lovely and sharing the highs and lows of wading through the murky waters of parenting adolescents. With wit, insight and heartfelt wisdom, Joanne lays bare the experience of both parent and teen in this very well-written, warm, honest and often very funny book. Not just for those of us at the coalface, anyone who was, is or will be dealing with teens - or indeed who was once a teen – will enjoy this read. As a seasoned veteran of navigating those waters (I have three and I’m a high school Counsellor), I wholeheartedly recommend Love in the Time of Contempt to save a lot of time and sanity for all involved!

    Superb entertainment and enlightenment

    As Mum of 13, 15, 16 and 18, a teen parenting book would usually be the last type of book I would pick up (I'm already living the dream, right?) However this book manages to impart some pearlers - lifelong lessons for which I am (and hopefully my children will be) so grateful to Joanne for sharing. Letting go of the wheel and taking a back seat, being a supportive and guiding parent instead of a critical and leading parent, providing 'speed bumps' instead of 'road blocks' are just some of the concepts that struck a chord with me. Would especially recommend to parents of pre-teens and teens and those working with teens in the hope they can save themselves and their kids countless hours, days, years of struggle.
