From the Inside Flap

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.

Format: Paperback
Bold Parents Positive Teens by Karen Dockrey is a thoroughly "parent friendly" guide for Christians men and women struggling to raise their children through the adolescent years. Denouncing the myth that teens do best when they experiment with life and learn from their mistakes (especially since some mistakes can cost children their lives and the lives of others), Bold Parents Positive Teens is an uplifting and very strongly recommended guide to being a proactive parent, staying involved in the life of teenage children, and being a positive influence in a world filled with negative messages.

Format: Paperback
Some parenting books spout tons of theories...this book has doable ideas for getting teens to talk, guiding them through difficult days, etc. Challenging, but not at all overwhelming. I've read - and learned from - about 10 different "teen parenting books" during the last year, but this one might be the best and is, by far, the easiest and most enjoyable to read. Thank you, Karen Dockery!!!
