But these years don't have to create chaos in your family. Parenting expert and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Kevin Leman's time-tested principles will aid parents in helping their middle schooler not only survive but thrive during these turbulent years on Planet Middle School. He shows parents how to
- understand their child's rapidly expanding world
- respond rather than react to emotional swings
- tell their child about sex (before someone else tells them their version)
- create opportunities for their child to practice selflessness and gratitude
- ensure that their kid is one who loves home and family
Middle schoolers can be a weird, unpredictable species. But with a little help from Dr. Leman, parents will be able to ride out the interstellar storm with humor and confidence.

BrianHOrange, CAAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Don't wait until you are on this planet to read this book!January 27, 2016BrianHOrange, CAAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Fantastic resource for anyone with a middle schooler or an about-to-be-a-middle-schooler in their home or life. Dr. Leman makes what is a very tough situation, manageable with great storytelling and lots of personal insight, as well as tips from other parents who have survived this season of life. I have found it invaluable and reassuring that raising a middle schooler can be done. And more than anything, I appreciate that he tackles this from a Christian perspective and worldview. Everything he teaches has its founding in the Word. Just don't wait like I did to be already landed on this wild planet to pick up this book, prepare early and often.
