Raising Successful Teens
This revised and updated edition of The Fight of Your Life features a new title, refreshed design, and 70% new content.
From every side--the Internet, social media, interactions with friends, in both their public and private lives--teens are persuaded to follow the world's way over God's every day. Culture's mantra "live for today" has become the slogan of this generation! But, one thing remains true--mom and dad are still the greatest influence in the life of their child.
Based on timeless biblical truths, Raising Successful Teens equips parents with positive, encouraging, and practical advice. A family and teen culture expert with more than 25 years of ministry experience, Jeffrey Dean gives parents the street-level approach they need to help their teens wisely and safely navigate technology, friendships, dating relationships, social media, and more. Parents will learn how to keep the lines of communication open and stay involved in their teens' lives.
My thoughts: This book is a must for parents of teens! I love that it has been updated, since so much has changed in the last few years with technology really exploding, so raising teens has changed. This book is an excellent resource that shows parents that raising teens doesn't have to be scary. I really appreciated Jeffery's thoughts on how to grow a stronger family and the important roles of both parents (though, he writes about the single parent too!). The world has changed so much since those of us who are parents were teenagers, so I cannot stress enough how important books like this one are! I highly recommend picking up a copy of this book.
I received this book from the publisher. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
