369 pages. $9.95.

A writing teacher and mother of two teens offers this postcard-sized “companion, a quiet place to help you remember you are not alone on this journey of parenting a teen.” Entries for each day of the year open with a quotation that inspires rumination. For example, Bennett Cerf’s saying, “A pat on the back, though only a few vertebrae removed from a kick in the pants, is miles ahead in results,” is a reminder to acknowledge a daughter’s positive action. Each page ends with an intention to make one step toward improvement. Hoolihan’s simple gift is a class act. (800) 888-4741, http://www.ipgbook.com.
