Author of such books as FUEL, DARE 2B WISE and PURE EXCITEMENT, Joe White has made it a career of investing in the lives of youth via his written texts and acting as president of Kanakuk Kamps. White now teams up with another prolific young adult author, Lissa Halls Johnson, to offer parents tried-and-true practical ideas for sticking with teens during the most emotional (good or bad) spaces of time.

White and Johnson open the book with some personal thoughts and a few cheerleading-type challenges to hang in there with teens, despite the seemingly endless parade of emotional roller-coaster rides, unexpected detours and personal disappointments. Readers get a sense that both authors truly love kids and have experienced the ups and downs of rearing these ever-changing, always transforming individuals.

Within a 13-chapter format, White offers quotes from anonymous parents and kids alike that punctuate and highlight each section's topic at hand. Readers will find these brief statements alternately funny and sad, but all ring true to family life. The authors then jump in with the "experiment" of parenting. Citing one family's wake-up call, both literal and figurative, White shares one couple's dilemma when being awoken in the middle of the night to find that their son had not only stolen from a friend's truck, he'd been drinking, taking drugs and was at that moment running from the police. During the conversation, the same son announces his plan to move to Mexico once his friend gets his inheritance at age 18. Talk about a "wake-up" call.

White then offers a few other examples of home violence and discusses how times have changed; what parents lived out as "rebellion" during their teen years no longer exists in today's violent, up-charged climate.

I really got a lot of information on how communication w/ your teen is so vital. I am not a BIG reader of self help books, but this author has been there and admits to his faults as a parent. I really have enjoyed the challenge this book has to offer me as a mother. I am really enjoying my teen as I try to understand her more.

As I read this book I felt Joe White wrote it just for me. HOW DID HE KNOW I AM FEELING ALL THE THINGS HE MENTIONS? I have read many many books, too many to even count, and not one has touched me like this one has. It is not just about finding solutions but about understanding the process of forgiving and healing old wounds in order to TRULY move forward. You would find ne in many occasions nodding my head in agreement over a word, a sentence or a phrase I read. Tears of every emotion possible rolled down my face. It is definitely a MUST read for EVERY parent with a TEEN!

This book is fabulous. Joe White obviously knows teens. He talks about what things are "normal" and what things parents should be more concerned about. He offers practical things to think about and advice that's doable and makes sense. I'm thankful for a book that offers help to parents who's teens are in trouble.
