Who’s in Charge?, written by Eddie Gallagher, is a book aimed at helping parents unravel the mysteries of violent and abusive children. For those who don’t have difficult teenage children, this book will come as something of a thunderbolt as the misery that some parents and families endure is not well-documented or discussed. For those whose children are reasonably normal and average, this will come as something of a relief! Never again will you complain about sour faces, bad moods and bombsite bedrooms.Eddie Gallagher’s main objective is to explore the facts and expose the taboo that surrounds the concept of children perpetrating violent acts upon their parents. However, Who’s in Charge? contains a mine of information about family relationships, about emotions in general and stacks of advice about good parenting, so this is a book that every parent would benefit from reading. It will also be of interest to professionals and academics as there has been little written on this topic, and nothing with such scope. Candid, non-judgmental, certainly not sanctimonious and full of humour, Eddie Gallagher is able to take this difficult and largely hidden topic and expose it. Other topics are covered which would be of interest to any parent – the effect of social media and the internet, an increasing lack of respect towards authority in society – and the author also touches on the issue of violent abuse between adults within relationships plus the input of healthcare professionals and the moral minefield they face, all in all a veritable mine of information. Accessible, relevant and easy to read, every part of this book will impact someone somewhere, whether they have children or not.
