Reviews - What do customers think about And Then I Had Teenagers: Encouragement for Parents of Teens and Preteens?

A Must For Parents of Teens  Apr 10, 2003
Written from experience, this book speaks to parents of pre-teen and teens. In Chapter 1 the author looks at ten common challenges which parents of teens face. The remaining chapters deal with these problems one at a time. It is an encouraging book because parents see that other caring, Christian parents have problems with their children as they move into the adolescent years. Some of the emotions parents feel are fear, frustration, guilt, loneliness, confusion and the tormenting question of "What If."
As the reader goes from chapter to chapter there is a comforting support - the example of others who have shared the impossible injury and found it possible to work through the experience. The presence and comfort of a close relationship with God gives the assurance each of us needs. Read and share it with friends, and enjoy your teenagers.

RUN, DON'T WALK AND GET THIS BOOK!!!  Aug 20, 2001
If you have preteens or teenagers, if you have a friend who has preteens or teenagers, RUN DON'T WALK and get this book! And Then I Had Teenagers is filled with extremely practical, honest, insightful, challenging, humorous, and thank goodness, empowering thoughts and ideas. Mrs. Yates writes from her personal experience of raising five teenagers and shares stories of several of her friends. Mrs. Yates is vulnerable enough to share her successes, her failures and her compromises which include every year having Easter dinner at the dining room table complete with china IN THE FRONT YARD!

Written from a Biblical perspective, Mrs. Yates tells us, even though parenting teenagers is challenging, it is also a wonderful time of life for us and our kids. Throughout the book she reminds us to be the parent and that our job is to teach our teenagers life skills, not be their best friend. She shows us that as parents, we are investing in our child for long term gains not short term results. Mrs. Yates encourages us to distinguish between crucial issues (sorry, every issue cannot be a crucial one!) and swing issues. She bolsters our confidence so that we can gradually let go of our teenager without letting go of our mind! Mrs. Yates addresses tough and contemporary issues like the Internet, co-ed slumber parties, alcohol, drugs, eating disorders, movies, your teenager's faith and attending church. She gives us her opinion and tells us what did and didn't work in her family. Also, she shares what she has seen work in other families. Then she encourages us to pray and make a decision that is best for our family and individual teenager. I appreciate that Mrs. Yates continuously reminds us that every teenager is different and what worked for one teenager may not work for your other teenager. We need to make decisions based on the individual teenager.

I have already put some of the book's practical suggestions into action. When my ninth-grade son comes home from football practice, he starts the washing machine. Every night he washes, dries and puts his practice uniform back in his gym bag. I told him that his future wife would thank me for teaching him to do laundry. His response? He rolled his eyes but started the washer! THANK YOU, MRS. YATES!

As a speaker to women and couples, I want this book on my book table. I will tell my friends and my audiences, if you can only have one book about raising teenagers, pick this book. But be forewarned, after reading Mrs. Yates' book, you never know where your dining room table will end up!
