A Guide to Meaningful Parent-Son Conversations
Do you know what your son really thinks about girls, school, God, his future? It's not easy to be sure, is it? Boys aren't known for being great communicators, especially entering their teen years. How do you connect with him on the things that are important to both of you?
Based on tried-and-true parenting wisdom, this book shares fun, thoughtful questions and talking points that lead to meaningful, natural conversations about
· physical and emotional changes your son is facing
· staying pure in an oversexualized culture
· using social media responsibly
· and much more
This structured approach offers practical ways to bond with your son and encourage him in his faith, talk about the challenges he faces in school and with friends, and show him that you love him dearly before he enters the turbulent teen years.
