I highly recommend this product. I used it with my 11 1/2 year old daughter. The content is excellent. The cds gave good, clear information in a way that was comfortable for both of us. We were only able to do an overnight stay at a hotel, so we started listening to 2 of the cds at home. I also modified some of the activities as well. Even though I did not have a lot of time to shop for some of the materials for the activities, I was able to make do with one stop at the local dollar store. Some of the songs did not suit my daughter's taste, but other than that, it was perfect!
I was somewhat nervous thinking my 9-yr-old daughter was too young for this, but she's already asking a lot of questions, so I took the plunge on an overnighter to a frilly Bed & Breakfast with her and my 11-yr-old daughter. It was AWESOME!! The material is rock solid and brings up so many issues that I probably wouldn't have thought to cover in such a way. Can't recommend this enough -
We ordered this product to use for our 10-year-old son, who will be turning 11 later this year. We both listened to the set, before my husband went on the weekend with our son. The CD's are very well thought out and the accompanying activities are great! My son came back as a young man and said that it was one of the best weekends he's ever had with his dad. The part on peer pressure is very well presented and our son now talks about "the traps" and "the herd", when talking about things that happen at school. We are so thankful for this amazing product!
This study is wonderful! It covers all the areas that teens and preteens are facing today. The biggest thing for parents to know it is really more for eleven and twelve year old. If you plan on doing with your fifteen or sixteen year old be aware you may get a lot of rolling of the eyes because it is geared for preteens!
If you can't do a getaway weekend, don't worry about it just do it as a weekly Bible study and it can be just as special:)
