Publisher's Description

Few topics are more difficult for parents to discuss with their daughters than dating and relationships.  Due to their lack of knowledge about the world their teens face coupled with the scant dating information they received as teens, many parents feel ill-equiped to guide their daughters through the minefield that is teen dating.

In The 10 Myths of Teen Dating, this father and daughter team combines the latest scientific research with poignant, personal stories to help parents engage their daughters in wise conversations. Weaving in solid biblical truths with practical application and discussion starters, Daniel and Jacquelyn seek to equip parents to teach their daughters how to date for today … and tomorrow.

Author Bio

Daniel Anderson is a former college All-American basketball player, an expert educator, and a father of two grown daughters and a son. As a veteran high school teacher in the public school system, Daniel was troubled by how his students approached dating and relationships. He and his daughter, Jacquelyn Anderson—a twentysomething and also a high school teacher—decided to address this need by equipping parents with The 10 Myths of Teen Dating, their first book together. Daniel and Jacquelyn both make their home in Portland, Oregon. 

Editorial Reviews

"For parents to understand their daughters better and help them navigate through dating, this book is a must-read."
Kim and Krickett Carpenter, authors of The Vow

"Dating is a cultural reality that is not going away. However, teenagers need guidelines. In The 10 Myths of Teen Dating, Daniel Anderson and Jacquelyn Anderson give realistic guidance. I highly recommend this book."
Gary Chapman, PhD, author of The 5 Love Languages

"I'm the father of a soon-to-be-teenage girl. I can't imagine a better book about teenagers and dating. The lessons of The 10 Myths of Teen Dating are sure to help any family."
Todd Hoffman, star of Discovery Channel's Gold Rush

"The 10 Myths of Teen Dating is a crucial book for parents as they guide their girls to become 'smart daters.' This book, written by a wise father, educator, and husband, is filled with information and life lessons. It offers concrete advice on starting conversations that encourage girls to bring self-respect, awareness, and intentionality to their relationships."
Bea Herzberg, Pinterest phenomenon with more than 1.05 million followers

"The toughest period of parenting is during the teen years. I survived it with my three, but there were days when I wasn't sure. I wish this book had been available twenty-five years ago. But the good news is that it's available now and offers real common sense, as well as practical and road-tested principles of parenting. Don't wait to read it until your daughters are sixteen—read it when they are twelve and be prepared!"
Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas and talk show host

    *My Thoughts*

    I was actually surprised by what I found in the pages of this title.

    The book was well written, factual, and was laced with just enough Biblical truths to be appropriate for non-Christians as well as believers.

    Daniel's experiences in a school setting for 20+ years gave him valuable insight into the subject, and his daughter was a great addition to the book.

    Overall, a pleasant read with some valuable information, great for moms of teens or teens to read.

    And I Thought ...

    Practical much needed resource for parents! A book every parent needs to read.

    The book is filled with realistic personal stories.

    Reflection questions end each chapter allowing the parent/reader to contemplate and ready themselves to discuss the content with his/her daughter. Here are a couple of examples . . .

    From Chapter 1- Myth1-If I Had a Boyfriend I would Be Happy.

    Questions-What have you taught your daughter about where happiness is found?

    From Chapter 4- Myth 4- Sex Will Enhance My Relationship

    Question-What have you told your daughter about why boys want to have sex?

    Discussion questions follow the reflection questions and provide very candid opportunities to discuss the content together with your child/children.

    This is a great book and I highly recommend all parents to read it. Although it is really written for girls I think that older guys (college students) might find valuable information.

    Anything that parents can do to ensure the safety of their daughters and son's as well is proactive. Giving children honesty and truth

    preparing them to 'date smart' is parenting 'smart'.

    I received a complimentary copy from Litfuse.

    Topics included in this books are ones you would expect, like sex, feelings, abuse, fighting, and ones you might not, like serial dating, rebound relationships and getting back together. I truly love how Daniel started out with what happiness IS, and what it is NOT. This may be the hardest one for teens to understand, as they are so ruled by peer pressure at this age. The thought of being different and unique is not only difficult, but fraught with it's own devilish rocks to overcome. But Daniel stresses that happiness doesn't come from those outside signs, but from within OURSELVES. This is something I've actually already talked to Miss Grace about- if you are happy with yourself, then that shows and you will find the right person for YOU, not who others think you should be with.

    Each chapter gives a bottom line, summarizing the myth and solution, then offers questions for you and your daughter to discuss, questions for reflection, and thoughts for the next chapter. This way you can take one chapter at a time, break it down into discussions and questions, and then see where you and your daughter are. Do you need more discussion? Should you move on to the next chapter, or offer more discussions on the present topic? This is a very realistic and honest look at all the pitfalls and myths of teen dating and a very welcome resource to parents- moms and dads alike. I would recommend ALL parents read it. Even if you only have boys, many of the myths cross over to both girls and boys!
