Book Recommendations

For Parents Only, by Shaunti Feldhahn and Lisa A. Rice

In this remarkable book, Shaunti Feldhahn and Lisa Rice take you inside the mind of teens and preteens through the same innovative approach that seized national attention in the best-selling books For Women Only, For Men Only, and For Young Women Only. They explore the results of a nationwide survey and personal interviews with more than 1,000 real-life teens and tweens to tackle those things parents often don't "get" about their kids. You'll hear first-hand about the longings that drive your kids' seemingly illogical decisions, the truth behind those exasperating "attitude problems," and what your children would tell you if they could trust you to truly listen.

Annotation: This resource is ideal for parents and youth ministry workers. It offers help in better understanding media and music that matter to teens, the pressures they face, struggles with substance abuse and depression, teenage faith, and much more.
