Praise for "Wise-Minded Parenting"

""Wise-Minded Parenting" is such a welcome resource for parents who want to understand what really works to build success in teens. The authors go way beyond the usual parenting tips to describe cutting-edge research on such topics as self-control, academic performance, and mindsets. And they provide simple, down-to-earth strategies. How rewarding to see scientifically-proven practices given to parents where it can do so much good!"
