For Parents Only: Getting Inside the Head of Your Kid
About the Book
Filled with profound, eye-opening and statistically solid survey results garnered from more than 1,200 teenagers nationwide, FOR PARENTS ONLY offers moms and dads a never-before-seen glimpse into the hearts and minds of their children. Tackling such topics as what’s really going on behind that attitude, the six biggest pet peeves of teens regarding their parents and how and when to allow kids appropriate responsibility and risk, best-selling authors Shaunti Feldhahn and Lisa A. Rice unravel the mysteries behind the misunderstood behavior of young people.
"Whether you’re the parent of a small child and want to lay a foundation for the years ahead, or whether you only have a few months left until Junior leaves the nest, the goal of this book is to help you understand several key things that are likely going on in the inner life of your child, some inner wiring that you may have never understood before," writes Feldhahn. "Our goal is to serve as your tour guides through the strange and wonderful world of 'teendom' and give you new information to help you understand what’s going on inside kids… and how these facts can give clearer direction to your parenting."
FOR PARENTS ONLY better equips moms and dads to not only maximize, but also enjoy the precious little time they have with their children. By beginning to understand their kids better, parents will learn to interact with them in healthier, constructive ways.
