Shaunti Feldhahn again teams with Lisa Rice to bring you inside the mind of your teenager, tween, or younger child. What do they say when you aren't listening? What do they really want from you that you may not know? This audiobook focuses solely on those areas that parents tend not to "get" about their kids, and brings you concise, simple answers from the experts and the kids themselves. 4 CD's. Read by Shaunti Feldhahn. Unabridged.
What parent hasn't occasionally looked at their beloved but bewildering offspring and wondered, what in the world is he thinking, or why is my sweet little girl acting like that?
In this remarkable audiobook, Shaunti Feldhahn and Lisa Rice take you inside the mind of teens and preteens through the same innovative approach that seized national attention in the best-selling book For Women Only, For Men Only, and For Young Women Only. They explore the results of a nationwide survey and personal interviews with more than 1,000 real-life teens and tweens to tackle those things parents often don't get about their kids. You'll hear first-hand about the longings that drive your kids' seemingly illogical decisions, the truth behind those exasperating "attitude problems," and what your children would tell you if they could trust you to truly listen.
Shaunti Feldhahn is a nationally syndicated newspaper columnist, public speaker, and a best-selling author whose books include For Women Only. After working on Wall Street and Capitol Hill, this mother of two now applies her analytical skills to illuminating surprising truths about relationships.
Lisa A. Rice is the associate editor of Christian Living magazine, the mother/forster mom of three teenage girls and one teenage boy, and an experienced screenwriter and producer. She's also the coauthor, with Shaunti, of For Young Women Only.
"Narrating her parenting guide, Shaunti Feldhahn comes across as a reassuring regular mom. Chuckling lightly at her own jokes, she sounds genuinely interested and sometimes surprised by her own books material. Teens are intoxicated with freedom, she says. They make poor choices because their brains are not yet fully developed. Teens want to talk to their parents, but only if parents listen without "flipping out." Offering insights from a national survey and personal interviews with over a thousand kids, Feldhahn and Rice share information and genuinely useful tips on how to better understand and talk with your teen. Though the authors, both devoted Christians, claim their research is meant for a wide audience, listeners should expect to find many references to God, prayer, and Christian parenting in this production."
