They didn't tell parents, "You must do it this way, because that's the only right way." Rather, I was challenged to think about what I wanted most to pass on to my kids, and given some ideas for starting the conversations.
Great resource for parents of tween girls, but even parents of teens could find it helpful.
SoaringEagleUSAGender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Helpful, Practical Advice for ParentsDecember 29, 2015SoaringEagleUSAGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In one year, I'll have a teenager in the house. I thought that this book, She's Almost a Teenager by Peter and Heather Larson and David and Claudia Arp, would be useful and helpful to me personally and maybe to you too.
This is a book about having conversations with your tween daughter. There are eight conversations that guide you in ways to talk to and with your pre-teen. The first conversation is called The Big-Picture Talk - Begin With the End in Mind. This talks about the goals and the roles that are changing between you and your tween. I really like reading the ARP Adage. These are tips and practical advice. An example of one these ARP Adage: "A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger" (Proverbs 15:1). Before speaking, ask yourself, Will what I'm about to say build up and encourage my child to grow as a person, or will it attack and tear down my child? It certainly helps me think how I am talking with/to my daughter and make any necessary changes.
At the end of the book are bonus activities. Project Thirteen and Birthday Boxes which are pretty neat ideas. This whole book is based on practical tips and advice to help the parents converse with their tween daughter.
I received this complementary book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
JanetBelton, TXAge: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Giving Parents a Head-StartOctober 22, 2015JanetBelton, TXAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"Shes Almost a Teenager" by Peter and Heather Larson and David and Claudia Arp is a book that can most definitely help parents prepare to raise their teenage daughters well. This book provides ideas and questions to consider when preparing to have eight essential conversations with a ten- to twelve-year-old daughter. These conversations include: the big picture (becoming a teenager), friends, academics, body, faith, boys, money, and tech. Each chapter either gave me something to think about that I hadnt yet thought about or equipped me with great ideas for navigating through conversations I already know might be challenging. The Larsons and the Arps are giving parents a needed head-start.
I especially appreciated their emphasis on keeping things positive. Its exciting when our children become teenagers. Its a privilege to help them as they make the transition from childhood to adulthood. We celebrate as they master new skills and take on more responsibility. We enjoy adding appropriate, corresponding privileges as they do.
On page 151, the authors say, Remember, our job as parents is to work ourselves out of a job and into a relationship that will last for a lifetime. Every chapter in this book is designed to help parents succeed.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers. I recommend it to parents of daughters approaching their teens.
tmurrellTNAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Start a convo with your daughterOctober 16, 2015tmurrellTNAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Navigating the pre-teen and teenage years can be daunting for both the parents and the child. Two families have come together to share their knowledge and experience with us in a unique book. Designed to start conversations, the authors have shared eight conversations that need to take place before your daughter becomes a teen. Each conversation is an essential part of her foundation as an adult. The chapters begin with thoughts from the authors and a basis for why the conversation is necessary. Each chapter ends with several conversation starters you can use with your daughter.
This is a great book. I enjoyed the stories and information that was shared in each chapter. While the conversations starters will need to be tweaked a bit for my daughter, they gave me food for thought and a place to start. I liked the focus on faith and independence that were intertwined throughout. This is a good book for any parent with a pre-teen daughter.
I received this book free of charge from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
