Synopsis

Your Teenagers Are Under Attack.
Help Them Defend Themselves.

The world presents an unflattering, one-sided picture of teenagers–rebellious, alienated, and hostile to adult guidance. Sadly, many Christian parents embrace this myth and refuse to provide the direction their teens hunger for. We want our sons and daughters to make godly choices, but we wrongly assume they have stopped listening to us. It’s hard to know how to lead our changeable and unpredictable teens–or if we should even try.

Even well-meaning parents believe the myth that teens do best when they experiment with life and learn from their mistakes. No approach could be more destructive. The stormy years of adolescence are the worst time for parents to back off. This is the time when bad friends, unharnessed emotions, rebellion, and a long list of irreparable mistakes could ruin your teen’s life. More than ever, this is the time our sons and daughters need proactive and confident parents.

Don’t Get Overwhelmed. Get Involved.

No matter what your parenting history, Bold Parents, Positive Teens shows how you can get confidently back into the game–and stay there. Focusing on ten of the greatest challenges faced by teenagers today, this invaluable guidebook provides the clear direction and commonsense wisdom every parent needs to love and guide their teenagers while effectively addressing their teens’ deepest needs.
