Parents Under Siege: Why You Are the Solution, Not the Problem, in Your Child's Life (The Free Press, 2001). The authors offer strategies to help parents assess and find solutions for children's difficult behaviors, such as self-destruction and antisocial behavior. They provide tools that parents can use to identify if they are raising a challenging child and ways to steer the child in positive directions. They explain how parents can become authority figures in their child's life in a world suffering from the social effects of television, video games, and the Internet along with the glorification of drugs and violence. The authors conducted interviews with many parents, including the only interviews with the parents of Columbine school shooter, Dylan Klebold.
