    4.5 stars - Would have loved this book a couple of years ago, as most of it deals with the end of high school years. There is definitely some awesome advice in those chapters, but for me was a little late. The final chapters on the college years were really were this book hit home (as ...

    Meh. It's a bunch of stuff to teach your high schoolers ... but I'd rather just hand them the book and have them read it. I know most of that stuff. ...

    Loved this book! My oldest when I read this is just starting high school. So I enjoyed the perspective it gave me looking forward. It?s a great road to be heading down and now my visibility is a little better. That being said, this book definitely focuses on life for 17-22 year olds ...

    Nothing earth shattering and leaned way more involved than I think they were trying to advocate. Feel like both sides presented but still overtly involved in the launch. ...

    Listened on Audible. Meh. It was mostly common sense. If you went away to college, you know everything they?re going to say in this book. There was one section that explained why we miss our children so much when they leave for college, where I did feel like, yes, this put my thought...

    This book had some really helpful parts and some parts that I didn't find as helpful. It is worth a read and I will read some sections again as we are closer to the college drop off. ...

    As a former teen who drove off in a snit to move herself into the dorms (soiled nest much?), I deeply appreciate the insights shared here that are a great blend of both practical experience & professional experts to navigate 21st century transitional parenting. Several books about ...

    Any parent of a teenager knows that this stage of child-rearing is where the real work begins. The physical exhaustion of chasing toddlers is no match for the extended roller coaster of school, social life, mean kids, friendships, broken hearts, first loves and potential dangers that l...

    This was useful, especially the sections related to academics. The sections about college weren't relevant at the minute but I'm definitely going to be re-reading closer to the time! ...

    I've been a fan of the Grown and Flown blog and FB posts for over a year and was thrilled when the book version was announced. I downloaded the audible the day it was released and listened to over the next two days. I really relate to the topics and am grateful someone recognized the n...

    In the real world, I would give this book a four-and-a-half. Subject-wise, this book is just what I need as my oldest son starts high school. And, there are some part (College Admissions, and the first year of college) that I don't fully need yet, but will come back to. The only reason...

    2.5 stars. Audiobook. It was ok. Some decent points but nothing all that revelatory. Also, some of the anecdotes I found to be annoying and humble bragging. I liked this line: "There are only a few days in life that are like none other." ...

    A helpful guide for parents of teenagers. Once they get by the too long introduction, the book is full of good advice, well-presented. My kids are long out of college, but I will give them this book to guide them with our grandchildren. ...
