Publisher's Description

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 books For Women Only, For Men Only, and For Young Women Only.

For every bewildered parent, there’s a kid longing to be understood. 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? Feldhahn and Rice 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.

Editorial Reviews

"Shaunti and Lisa have done an outstanding job talking about the issues, confusion, and dreams our kids face as they grow–and thus the issues we face as parents. Someone once said to me, ’God gives us the most important job in the world called parenting, and gives that job to inexperienced people.’ That is so true. But as you understand the inner life of your child, you will be much better equipped to meet the challenges and joys of being a good parent. I encourage you to pick up this book and start the journey of understanding today."
-Jim Daly, president, Focus on the Family

"Shaunti and Lisa have boldly gone where no one has gone before: straight into the brain of a teenager! The insights they have found give us a unique peek into the hopes, fears, desires, and challenges facing the next generation. Savvy parents will read and respond to what they learn in this book, and their family will be better as a result."
-Dennis Rainey, president, FamilyLife

"I will be buying this book by the case. As a youth minister, I’m always trying to communicate to parents exactly what Shaunti and Lisa so eloquently and poignantly communicate in For Parents Only. Every parent of teens should read this brilliant book!"
-Dannah Gresh, author of And the Bride Wore White

"Sandra and I love this book! With two teenage boys and a daughter who just started middle school, we soaked up Shaunti and Lisa’s insights and discoveries like sponges. This is not just another book on parenting. It is a fascinating look at the way your child’s mind works. We plan to use For Parents Only as a curriculum in our home group."
-Andy Stanley, pastor, North Point Community Church

"Shaunti and Lisa dive into the deepest core of kids’ hearts to bring parents amazingly insightful truths and advice. They hit the bull’s-eye when it comes to advice on raising children in the twenty-first century!"
-Dr. Joe White, president of Kanakuk Kamps

"At times I felt like I was sitting at a school lunch table, listening in on how kids really feel about their parents and what they would like to tell them. Shaunti and Lisa do an exceptional job of researching the topic and then making very practical suggestions. This gets my Five-Star rating on the HomeWord.com web site."
-Jim Burns, Ph.D., President, HomeWord, and author of Confident Parenting

"I am so grateful for the hours of compassionate listening, ton of credible research, and weight of brutal honesty represented within the pages of this book. As a mother of three teenagers, I am the first to admit that I need help! Thank you, Shaunti and Lisa, for coming alongside on this wild, woolly, and wonderful adventure." 
_Lisa Whelchel, best-selling author of Creative Correction, The Busy Mom’s Guide to Prayer, and Taking Care of the "Me" in Mommy

"For Parents Only beautifully breaks down the communication code between parents and children. Shaunti and Lisa consistently support their findings with extensive research and rock-solid solutions. This book delivers and we highly recommend it!"
-Dr Gary and Barb Rosberg, America’s Family Coaches, authors of The 5 Sex Needs of Men & Women and co-hosts of Dr. Gary and Barb Rosberg–Your Marriage Coaches

"Shaunti Feldhahn’ s latest series of books have helped her readers unlock some of the mysteries of family relationships. Now she and Lisa Rice have given us keys to understanding our teenagers by hearing directly from them about why they do what they do. We only wish that this book had been written when our kids were younger!"
-Bob and Cheryl Reccord, speakers and co-authors of Launching Your Kids for Life

"Do you remember how Maria responded when Captain Von Trapp proposed marriage? That’s right, she said, ’Let’ s ask the children.’ Instead of speculating and postulating and pontificating, Shaunti and Lisa have done a brilliant thing. They’ve asked the children. And the children–teenagers–have told them the truth. I commend this important book to you."
-Dr. Robert Wolgemuth, best-selling author of She Calls Me Daddy and Dad’s Bible

    The book came as asavior and at the right time. It reveal the mind and thoughts of the kids in only a way that the Holy spirit Himself can do to the parents as to be able to do things right and not loose our kids to this world and the devil through lack of understanding of the situation.

    Wisdom is power. This book has taken power from the wrong hand-the world and given it back to the parents if rightfully applied.

    The quotes from the teens were very helpful. The authors made me feel as they were talking to me and gave good pointers on dealing with my teen. I did not feel "put down" at any time.

    Although we, as adults, remember being teenagers we don't necessarily remember what it "feels" like enough to understand our kids. This book helps tremendously!

    I am only in the beginning of reading this book. However, what I have read so far has been very informative and helpful. As , I have a Freshmen that just entered H.S. and find that this book is going to be most helpful in the journey ahead in helping him to grow in an understanding of who he is in Christ, as a young man living in a world that is opposed to Righteous living. As a parent, it is definitely going to be helpful to me in understanding what my son is going through and to be able to have better communication with him.
