Book Description

Christian parents today feel replaced as the primary influence in their teen’s lives--undermined at school, invaded by the web, and in the dark about what’s really going on. Truth is, says teen expert Jeffrey Dean, parents don’t know the half of it!

In The Fight of Your Life, Dean offers a frank, solutions-oriented plan for parents who want to protect their teens from dangerous choices and guide them toward God’s best–and are ready to fight to make it happen. First Dean gives parents a shocking but invaluable inside view of what teens are up against. Then he helps parents discover their irreplaceable role in their kids’ success. Along the way he tackles hot button issues--sex, partying, porn, cheating and eating disorders--and coaches parents on how to protect and grow a healthy relationship with their teens.

Packed with hope and solid Bible teaching, The Fight of Your Life gives parents the tools they need to help their teens discover their exciting futures as passionate Christ followers and positive, world-changing adults.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

Editorial Reviews

Review

“Jeffrey Dean reminds us that the culture surrounding today’s teens is changing just as fast as the technology. Parents need to read this book–today.”
Mike Yorkey, co-author of the Every Man's Battle series

“As our culture disengages more and more from Christian faith, it’s becoming harder and harder to follow Christ. This fact is hitting Christian teens very hard. Jeffrey Dean’s book shows parents how to put on their spiritual boxing gloves and fight for their children’s destinies in God. Read this very practical book!”
Bayard Taylor, author of Blah, Blah, Blah: Making Sense of the World's Spiritual Chatter

Praise for This Is Me and Watch This
This Is Me will encourage, inspire, and challenge anyone who dives in. Many girls and women feel too scared or uncomfortable to talk about these issues with a guy. For that reason this book posses a uniqueness that separates it from the pack. Not only is Jeffrey’s approach on a very personal level, it's packed with biblical truths. This book will change your life if you’re a young lady, a mother, or even a guy!”
Josh Reedy, lead singer, DecemberRadio

"In Watch This, Jeffrey uses Biblical truth to encourage teen guys to grow toward authentic manhood.”
Jason Roy, lead singer, Building 429

“Jeffrey Dean has a way of zeroing in on today’s youth culture. He knows teens and how to communicate the love of Jesus to them in a way that captures their attention and convicts their hearts.”
Josh D. McDowell, author and communicator

“Jeffrey Dean’s This Is Me reads like an honest conversation with a trusted big brother. No catchy gimmicks or watered down lessons, just straight talk about the things girls care about most, backed up by scripture, with all the authenticity that today’s teens long for. I ...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Trend is Relativism July 15, 2009
Format:Paperback
"The Fight of Your Life" is an insightful look at the issues faced by today's teens with strategies for parents to both discuss and deal with threats to their child's body, mind, and soul. Jeffrey covers issues varying from premarital sex, pornography, dating, internet usage, friends, drugs/alcohol, and self injury. This common sense approach to teen struggles brings out of the darkness, issues, that parents may not have been faced with before. "Sixty years ago there were prescribed social norms of morality. Today the trend is relativism", "The Fight of Your Life" is a convicting approach to how to reach an ever-changing youth culture with the unchanging truths of the gospel.

Jeffrey takes an aggressive stance on pornography, encouraging parents to remain aware of their child's browsing habits. He goes to great lengths to demonstrate the wide spread affects of pornography, giving specific statistics regarding the age at which most teens encounter sexually explicit content, "One study showed that a whopping 90 percent of all eight to sixteen year olds had viewed pornography online - most inadvertently while doing homework."

Yet Jeffrey doesn't stop at remaining the baron of your child's computer habits. He encourages dialog between parent and child about sex, and what a healthy relationship can look like. He states,

"Your teen needs to see you as safe. Your teen needs to know that if he or she comes to you with any question or any concerns you will talk with them about what's truly going on[...
