Item description for Dad, If You Only Knew...: Eight Things Teens Want to Tell Their Fathers (but Don't) by Weidmann...
Overview A young man joins his father in an effort to help dads understand where theirkids are coming from. (Relationships)
Listen Up, Dads Your Teen Is Talking to You As exasperating as parenting can be during these volatile years, your teen is depending on you for steady faithfulness, love, and guidance. And because teens often find words elusive and expression difficult, they probably haven't told you the things they wish you somehow automatically knew. So let "Dad, If You Only Knew..." be your guide. Josh Weidmann, just out of the teen years himself, joins his father, James, to help dads understand where their kids are coming from. It's a messy world they live in, and meeting them in it is no simple task. But knowing these essentials now makes fatherhood eight times easier Welcome to Your Teen's World It doesn't matter if you have the most picture-perfect, ideal-in-every-way teen or one who's in full-swing rebellion. That teen you love is a "riddle wrapped in a mystery." No father can know what his teen is really thinking. That's why youth communicator Josh Weidmann teamed with his father, Jim, to help you bridge the gap. In "Dad, If You Only Knew..."you'll get an open, honest glimpse inside the teen mind. Josh's extensive research, combined with pointed direction from a father's heart, provide you with the practical guidance you need to establish a healthy, thriving father-teen relationship. It's one you desire, your teen needs, and you both can't afford to miss. Story Behind the Book "The resounding cry of teens for their fathers rings in my ear. I have been speaking to youth for five years and the greatest void I see in teens' lives is the one left by their dad. I am only twenty-three years old myself, and to this day I can say that my dad is the most influential man in my life. Because of his impact, I have asked him share in this book. We have written this message in hopes of helping dads reengage in the vital father-teen relationship." --Josh Weidmann

Reviews - What do customers think about Dad, If You Only Knew...: Eight Things Teens Want to Tell Their Fathers (but Don't)?
A must read for every Dad (and Mom) Feb 8, 2008
I read this book twice, the second time to make notes and a power point to help me in the education of my church community. This is the best writing I have read about Father-Teen relationship. It is actually quite important for mothers to read this as well because often I could just as well read "Parent" instead of "Dad". This book is helping me to better understand my youngest daughter and I wish I would have read this book years ago when my oldest was still a teenager. Hats off to the Weidman's!
Dad, If you only knew May 14, 2007
A light weight reminder of important things a growing daughter needs to see in and feel from her Dad.
Simple wisdom. Profound imact. Jun 27, 2006
Well, I'm no dad, but I was once a teen, and I have a dad. And this is a message every father today needs to hear. Josh and Jim collaberate to offer us simple truths and guidance. Josh's work with youth all over the country, and his life of integrity, make him an insightful, powerful voice that's worth every father's listening ear (or, reading eye!).
Good Info Mar 10, 2006
Josh Weidmann and his dad did a very nice job reminding us what it's like to be young and have questions about our dreams and nightmares in relation to our fathers.The large info is that we, as fathers, frequently go through parenthood oblivious to the real thoughts and fears our kids have. This book is a plain fact educater of those issues with good ideas on how to be a friend instead of a foe to your teen. I recommend the book with a caveat not to stop there but be willing to spend the time while it's still available with your kid and invest in that special love account so they may make withdrawals when the time needs.
Dynamic word for all Dads Aug 10, 2005
If you're a dad, this book by Josh and Jim Weidmann is a MUST have for you. You will find the heart of your teen and the path to relationship with that teen. If you feel you are losing touch with the teen in your life (or if your just facing the teen years ahead), you NEED to read this book so you can meet your teen on first base and run the bases of life with them - not against them.
