In this remarkable audiobook, 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 book 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.

Would love to have known this information sooner. What I have learned will greatly effect my parenting.
Love the horror genre but read all kinds of stuff! I'm 40 something, a wife, mom and Project Manager for a large Construction Company.
This book has some fundamental information which is good to re-hear and re-learn (such as kids really do feel loved when a parent cares enough to discipline). It also covers some new insights (such as when kids say parents dont LISTEN, what they mean is that we don't understand thier feelings). There is a lot of surveyed information so some of the lessons in this book may or may not apply to your child specifically, but I think that there is enough information covered to portray the ideas and expression of most kids. I enjoyed the book and the narration and the information is "usable". I would recommend it to new an veteran parents alike.
I love motivational, inspirational, self improvement, self help, Christian insight, financial, some sci-fi and fantasy books.
Yes, I would recommend this book because it offers a lot of insight into what your child may be thinking.
It is similar to Dr. James Dobson's Parenting Isn't for Cowards as far as offering a lot of statistics about children and their behavior. It is different from Parenting Isn't for Cowards in that it is geared more toward the behavior of teenager's while Dobson's book gives more insight into the younger child.
Children need to feel the security of boundaries from their parents.
My son is 5 years old and this was somewhat helpful, however I will find myself reading it again when he gets older.
