Dr. Alex Chediak has watched too many college students flounder over these issues and many others. Sadly, 45 percent of those who start off at a four-year college will not complete their degree. At a time when college has never been more expensive, too many of our children are failing. What makes the difference? Character, a strong faith, and a willingness to delay gratification. And where is that learned? Ideally, at home.
In this book, Alex will give you everything you need to help your teens not only successfully navigate the college years but also real life. Alex covers all the hot-button issues: dating, premarital sex, roommates, grades, career guidance, God, and much more. You wont want to be without this essential survival manual for college.

bookwormPennsylvaniaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Informative Read for ParentsJune 25, 2014bookwormPennsylvaniaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Though this book does not apply to me because I have no children or plans for any in my future, I did find some insights to pass along to my brother who does have young children at home. The author uses sound Biblical advice for parents when it is time to prepare their children to leave home and attend a college. The author uses Scripture throughout the book and topics such as relationships, how to handle the expenses of college, academics, and how to prepare them spiritually for what they will face while attending college. I wish I had read this book before I went off to college because I would have found the advice to be very helpful especially the financial side of college as college is very expensive. I recommend this book to everyone who has children because the children will most likely attend college when they graduate high school and this book is full of great advice to make the transition easier for both parent and child.
mattparks35Joplin, MOAge: 18-24Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Great Resource for Parent's of TeensJune 4, 2014mattparks35Joplin, MOAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Alex Chediak shares some great insight for parents of teens in his new book. This book would have been a great help to me when I was scouting out different colleges. Chediak does a good job balancing principles with real-life applications. Many of the stories that he shares are very relative to a graduating senior today. His statistics are up to date and very helpful in distinguishing the difference between colleges now and colleges 10-20 years ago. This book is not necessarily recommended for students (check out Chediak's book for students, Thriving at College) though students would probably benefit from this book, if at least to put their perspective in the perspective of their parents. Hopefully this book will suit parents well in trying to guide your teens into adulthood, whether it be continuing education or transitioning into the workforce. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher and was not obligated to provide a positive review.
Matt MitchellAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Reading it has just oriented my next 8 years!February 14, 2014Matt MitchellAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I thoroughly enjoyed reading "Preparing Your Teens for College." My oldest child is 13 years old, and she's got brothers that are 12, 10, and 9. So we're just on the cusp of this teenage adventure, and I believe that reading this book has just oriented my next 8 years!
"Preparing Your Teens for College" is a discipleship manual for young people in our current cultural situation. It's not a book about college so much as about following Christ into young adulthood. Simply excellent.
