I was drawn to this because I was just sad at hearing people say "Buckle the seatbelt, you'll get the kids back when they are 19." Well, by then they'd be in college, then married... so that's it then? Kiss goodbye to the previously great relationship just because they hit teen years? I was looking for a better answer.
This gave a lot of hope, and a lot of answers. As I said, they are not easy answers and take work. Are you willing?
The premise behind it is that God is the God of every little thing, and it's the little things in life that provide the most and best teaching moments - and they are everywhere!
Second, kids have a way of pushing buttons and revealing to us things we don't like about ourselves (anger, pride etc). Often we'll blame the kids, but God gives us that opportunity to work on ourselves as well as help our teens.
It's filled with great biblical guidance for our families, the community within our families and our teens directly. It's a long term solution, one that will carry through guiding your kids to the day they leave home and beyond.
to be the best parent you can be more than fixing your child. Humbling and a great book for us. My kids are responding well to some of the approaches I adopted taken from this book. I already see a changed heart and mindset.
I can't explain it, you have to read it for yourself, but the author's perspective on parenting is amazing... totally different... refreshing and uplifting. He calls your to a higher-level of parenting that causes you to get the opportunity, gravity and JOY of parenting.
This is not a "fluffy" parenting book; it is the REAL thing--very much on-the-court.
You just have to read it
