Very helpful and biblically grounded. Profoundly searching as a parent as to many ‘heart’ issues that lead to poor family dynamics. A positive and proactive set of biblical guidelines and practical suggestions for parenting through the teen (and beyond) years. Recommend ( )

A redemptive approach to parenting, actually useful for dealing with all ages, not only teens. Best I have read yet, and a fit companion for Baucham’s Family driven faith.

A minor grip: it is a bit disturbing when such a good Christian book uses so much business analogies and language. ( )

Thought-provoking book on raising teens to have a heart for God. ( )

Great book for parenting a teen. These are difficult times, but parents should look at conflicts as opportunities to mentor children to think with a Christian mindset and examine their hearts and struggles. Engage with the world, but do not be of the world. It gave me hope in how to handle conflicts with my daughter and good advice on how to re-frame these situations for the better. ( )

Absolutely great book! This is a must read for all parents and those that will work with teens, or people for that matter! This book speaks to the heart of the matter. The heart! ( )

Dedication

For twenty-six years you have been my best friend, teacher, and example. In many ways you have taught me what parenting is all about. Thank you; your conribution is greater than you will ever know.
First words
[Preface] It was in August of 1971 that I took by first pastoral position as the Youth Director of Whaley Street United Methodist Church in Columbia, South Carolina.
It is everywhere around us--on the television sitcom, in the magazine on the supermarket rack, on the shelves of the local bookstore, on television and radio talk shows, and yes, even in a number Christian books on the family.
