Great book... Jan 24, 2007
I was really concerned about how to deal with a lot of issues with our daughter and purchased this book and even though I have only read about 1/3 of the book it is GREAT! I like the way it is written, the scenarios and suggestions are down to earth and real and I intend to use the methods presented in the book when I am faced with adolescent challenges.
I love purchasing from this site it was very simple and straight-forward and the book quality was great!
Indispensible Resource Feb 25, 2006
If ANYONE ever felt the need for a parenting "How-To", this is it!! Not for the faint of heart though - as it pulls no punches and advocates a tell-all approach to upcoming obstacles and pitfalls in a teen's life vs. leaving up to chance or peer-information or just plain ignorance. Taboo topics such as masturbation are addressed with exact advice and timing suggested. The philosophy is "Don't leave anything to chance - inform your child BEFORE it happens while encouraging serious brainstorming and promoting action plans to head off destructive events that are ultimately inevitable." Another issue addressed is virginity and the distinction between being a virgin and actually being PURE. Empowerment is key - for the child as well as the parent - in the face of a permissive society which shapes our children's perceptions of values and morals. Of course, the foundation of this book is the ultimate Rule Book of all things in life - the HOLY BIBLE. But even non-Christians who want a guide on how to teach good morals and values to their teen who is trying to make sense of: 1)where they belong and 2)what they should do in this crazy world will find this book to be a true treasure. I have recommended to it countless parents and am thankful I didn't find it too late...
Worth It's Weight In Gold! Sep 15, 2003
This book is just excellent for helping parents who don't know what to do as their children are growing into the teen years. This couple has really been there and done that! And it's wonderful that it comes from a Christian perspective, not wordly psychological garbage. This book is INDISPENSABLE. I have highlighted something on just about every page in my book. I cannot recommend this book enough. Each page contains practical things to do and watch out for. I will be reading mine over and over for years. EXCELLENT!
