Ever wonder about your teen? Confused by what they say or how to approach certain subjects? For Parents Only: Getting Inside the Head of Your Kid by Shaunti Feldhahn and Lisa A. Rice may be the answer to some of those questions. I may not have a teen, but my 10 year old is approaching the age fast…a bit to fast for me. This book is for both young and old parents, so it doesn’t matter if you have a 5 year old or a 15 year old. It’s full of helpful suggestions.
Ever hear, “You aren’t listening to me!” even after you spent 5 minutes listening to your child rant or cry about something? If you are like me or like my parents were then sure you’ve heard the phrase. This book covers that, it explains what your child is really saying, kind of like a teen translation guide for parents…something we really need to learn.
Your teen isn’t listening to a thing you say anymore, find out why. Maybe that sweet little girl you remember has turned into a rebel, or is jumping back and forth with moods. This book will not only help you understand them better, but hopefully help with the relationship between the two of you.
This book will walk you through the following challenges we all deal with in those teenage years. Freedom, Identity, Taking charge, Security, Listening, Attitude. Why should you read what two women say? For starters Lisa Rice, one of the authors, is a mother of three girls and on boy that are all teens. Yeah, they are ready to approach all those answers and questions and I think she’s got enough resources of a been-there-done-that type of approach. Lisa and Shaunti interviewed over 1000 teen/tweens to get the answers for this book, so ya’ll will learn what a teen thinks, by a teen.
Read the book for your answers, and if you’d like I’m giving away two copies. Leave a comment and tell me the hard things you remember talking to your teen about, or that you remember talking to your parents about.
