The Bible is Free To Read In Most Hotel Rooms Dec 14, 2008
With three sons and one of them deeply mired in his teens I am always looking for any info on how to be a better dad.
I'm not sure how I stumbled on this book and decided to own it (I suspect my sister) but I found it to be greatly disappointing once it arrived. What grated on me more than the very bland and non-specific advice was the overt religious sales job on nearly every page.
I read as much of the book as I could take and then threw it away. Even without the church propganda I found scant actual info or advice in this book.
very helpful Dec 6, 2008
This book has been so good to boost my confidence in the challenge of parenting. It has helped me understand about my teenager and give me advice on how to handle situations that I didn't know what to do. It's become my handbook and I will continue to pick it for years to come.
Teenage Boys: Surviving and Enjoying these Extraordinary Years Jun 19, 2008
In constant turmoil because I didn't "get" this now man-boy in my home who I've nurtured and cared for for thirteen years, I was looking for some help. Beausay is the father of two teenage boys (and a younger daughter), a clinical psychotherapist, and a help to Olympic-caliber athletes through the Academy of Sports Psychology. He writes through a biblical worldview but with real WISDOM, not just knowledge--so this book is very different from so much of the "Christian-ese" help books available. He begins the book educating me and being an instrument of change in my attitude and understanding of teenage boys. And he continues with practical help and counsel that, since applying, have transformed everything from communication to consequences within our home. Uncertainty, mystery and trouble still come but we are better armed as parents to love, inspire and counsel this wonderful son we've been given. Thanks Mr. Beausay!

Offensive May 11, 2004
I picked up Bill Beausay's book for advice about my teenage son. When I came upon a pagargraph on page 124 that I found extremely offensive, I could read no further: "Growing up is all about learning autonomy -- and that means a lot of messes. Even God had to suffer through it with His children, the Jews (and He was the perfect parent)."
