Parenting Your Eleventh Grader
MAKE THE MOST OF EVERY PHASE IN YOUR CHILD'S LIFE
You have approximately 936 weeks from the time your child is born until he or she graduates from high school. It goes by fast, and kids change and grow so quickly. It's as if they change just as you're starting to figure them out. It all makes the responsibility to shape a child's faith and character feel overwhelming.
Parenting Your Eleventh Grader is a concise guide that simplifies what you need to know about eleventh graders in general and offers interactive ways to discover more about your own eleventh grader to help you make the most of this phase.
- what's changing about your junior over the next 52 weeks,
- the 6 things your child needs most,
- and 4 conversations to have in this phase.
About the Phase Guides
Parenting Your Eleventh Grader is part of a series of books designed especially for busy people. These guides are more than a "journal" but less than a detailed "manual." Use this book to look ahead at key ways your child will be growing this year: physically, mentally, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. Jot down thoughts and observations to help you make the most of this phase.
For more, check out other books in this series: Don't Miss It, a concise volume to help you parent every week like it counts, and It's Just a Phase, an in-depth look at each phase, especially for church leaders. These resources are designed in partnership with Parent Cue (ParentCue.org).
About the Phase Project
The Phase Project, including this guide, is a synthesis of personal experience, academic research, and gatherings of leaders and educational experts from across the child development spectrum.
Parent Cue is affiliated with a non-profit Christian organization whose mission is to help kids and teenagers have an authentic faith that supports their future.
"When I was introduced to the Phase book series, I didn' t know what to expect. Personally, I've raised two successful men that have given me four beautiful grandchildren, all currently under the age of six. Resources like Phase weren't readily available at my fingertips while raising my children, so like a lot of parents, I did the best I could on my own with a lot of trial and error and certainly by the grace of God. I was so pleasantly surprised with the gift I had discovered in these books that I couldn't wait to share the information with my children and grandchildren .... My granddaughter will enter kindergarten this year and these books will be such guideposts for me as well as her parents for many years to come. Recently my mother passed away, and the best gift that I have from her are the journals that she left behind. I challenge you to not only use this book for yourself, but as a gift to give to your child or grandchild later that they will cherish forever."

"It's true that parenting is one of life s greatest joys, but it is not without its challenges. If we're honest, parenting can sometimes feel like trying to choreograph a dance to an ever-changing beat. It can be clumsy and riddled with well-meaning missteps. If parenting is a dance, this parenting guide is a skilled instructor refining your technique and helping you move gracefully on a steady beat. For those of us who love to plan ahead, this guide will help you anticipate wha's to come so you can be poised and ready to embrace the moments you want to enjoy." Tina Naidoo, executive director of Texas Offenders Reentry Initiative, The Potter's House of Dallas--OrangeBooks.com
"We all know where we want to end up in our parenting, but how to get there can seem like an unsolved mystery. Through the Phase Guides series, Reggie Joiner and Kristen Ivy team up to help us out. The result is a resource that guides us through the different seasons of raising children and provides a roadmap to parenting in such a way that we finish up with very few regrets." Sandra Stanley, foster care advocate, blogger, wife of Andy Stanley, mother of three--PhaseGuides.com
