If implemented? Magnificent!

As a family and marital therapist I wholeheartedly suggest following the practical guidance of this book will transform even healthier parent/teen relationships. Implementing the steps outlined will take patience, diligence and consistency over an extended period of time (far more than a few weeks)! Doing so may transform most relationships in your sphere of influence. Dr. Chapman also shares important insight about this development stage that will help you understand your teen. This seems to be lacking in so many other parenting books.

Helped shed much needed insight into the teen life.

I have read the 5 love languages before and was debating on whether purchased this audio book would help with my distant teen or not. I am glad I did. There was some much needed insight and self reflection. It was easy to listen to and already, within 1 week of practicing some of the suggestions for filling my teens love tank, I am experiencing positive reactions. I highly recommend this book, even to people (who like me) KNOW the 5 love languages.

Strong Religious Undertones / Good Ideas

I had a hard time listening to this to be honest. I didn't realize how religious the book was going to be so I kept leaving and going back to it. In addition to the religious undertones, it felt sort of outdated in the fact that they were pushing things like letting them only have sleepovers with same sex friends, etc. which doesn't really fit with our society today. What if your teen is gay? The book assumes you have a heterosexual privileged lifestyle. There is an example in the book that someones son made a huge mistake because he got a girl pregnant while in college and the girl wouldn't have an abortion despite his insistence and the parents were devastated that he ruined his life. Maybe it's just me, but it felt really out of touch on the real world examples.

Any time you are helping understand teenagers is a win. I took some ideas out of it, so it is definitely worth a listen to find out how to better communicate with your teen. I just really didn't agree with or connect with a lot of the undertones of the book.

A must read for parents with teens or pre teens!

It's sad how many teens are treated in a way that ends up hurting them only because many parents don't know about what's in this book. These principles are a sure way to make sure your teen or pre teen feels your love for them.

No interesting insights

Not an intelligent book. Just a bunch of cliches. Not scientifically based. I feel like every sentence that he writes has been written a million times before, and much of it isn't even true but just assumptions that people pass on to one another.

Love is important. God is love.

The narrator spoke well and the content was very informative and pertinent to raising teens in this age. Recommend it to other parents , teachers or persons who interact with teenagers.

must read without a doubt if you have teens

I have turned the corner after reading this book

Practical advices. Realistic situations and examples. Not lecturing or patronising like some other parenting books. It reminds me that my sons are growing up and going through a transition. This helps me seeing things from their points of view so I can help them better. We tend to treat them in the same way we did when they were younger. They could be feeling unsure of themselves going through this stage. We would add more pressure by telling them what they should do, how they should be like... I am recommending this book to a couple of girlfriends who are going through the same stage.
