Teen boys face an uphill battle on the road to becoming men of integrity, character, and personal excellence. At every turn, they are under siege by a culture trying to reshape their values. Today’s youth are more likely to encounter pornography, alcohol, drugs, and sexual temptation earlier in their lives than ever before. And influential peers are pulling them toward tragic choices. When our teens are slipping away, how do we get them back?
According to adolescent therapist and certified addictions counselor John Davis, extreme opposition calls for an extreme pursuit. Parents of preteen and teenage boys must be informed, courageous, and proactive in order to maintain positive and potentially lifesaving connection with their developing sons.
Davis reveals that young men are driven by design to be extraordinary, to build, to make an impact on the world. But left unchecked, this intensity can fuel destructive behavior. Davis shares practical advice for connecting with teen boys, understanding their world, and dealing with tough issues. When the stakes are this high, parents need to be strategically involved in a whole new way to pursue their sons with a fearless love
