Product Description

Do you ever wish someone would let you in on the secrets? Do you wish someone would tell you about love, dating and sex, why your parents seem so clueless, and why sometimes you just want to hide from people at school? So You're About to Be a Teenager is like a friend who isn't afraid to spill the beans about it all! When brother and sister Samuel and Rebecca Rainey were teenagers (not too long ago), they were curious about kissing, shaving, parties and pornography. They also remember feeling self-conscious, and worried about things they didn't want to talk about with anyone. Now that they've made it through their teen years, they along with their parents, who are finally cool in their eyes will talk about all those things you've been wondering about. They'll even tell you some wild things you didn't know you wanted to know. Right now, you're probably thinking of something that's been worrying your, a question you'd like answered. Maybe you've asked a friend about it, or maybe no one knows what you're dealing with. This book is full of answers. Don't believe it? Keep reading.

    Okay. So hi, I'm a preteen but that's all I'm gonna say. I got "So You're About To Be a Teenager" about a year and a half ago or something. First time I read it, I was extremely excited. I mean, the book is so good that it tells guys to respect girls and girls to respect guys! (plus it tells about how extreme it is to follow Jesus)

    I'm thinking every preteen should read this book because it's a good reminder of what the point of adolescence is - the REAL IDEA. I wish I could just buy 300 copies and give each preteen in my school one!

    This book is a great supplement to the Rainey's Passoport to Purity curriculum. It has great information and talking points for parents and their preteens. The contents are a bit repetitive if your child went through Passport to Purity, but essential if your child has not. Wish I had had this information as a child.

    Here is a book that every kid who is about to start middle school or junior high school should read. Whether or not kids want to know about all the stuff in this book, they are going to face it when they get to middle school or junior high school. Better to learn it here, in an awesome book that will teach the facts with grace than to learn it from the kids at school who will teach each other a whole lot of nonsense.Authors Dennis and Barbara Rainey teamed up with their-college-ages son and daughter (Samuel and Rebecca) to give the most conclusive Godly advice on friends, love, sex, faith, dating, and more Ive ever seen. I wish with all my heart Id have a book like this handed to me when I was eleven. If youre hesitant or afraid to start talking to your kids about this stuff, or if youre a teen who has a lot of questions, pick up a copy of this book. Its like having a friend who isnt afraid to tell you the truth. This is the best place to start. With the facts.

    I bought this book for my 12 year old son. He kept reading and could not put it down. It provided very useful information about the road ahead of him.

    I bought this book for my 11 year old because he wanted to know everything- and was seeking this information from secular sources. If you have seen any of the secular books on sexuality for teens, you know what you are up against. This book is totally explicit without being vulgar, but is written from a Christian prospective.
