For Parents Only: Getting inside the Head of Your Kidby Shaunti Feldhahn
Synopses & Reviews
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?"
In this remarkable book, Shaunti Feldhahn and Lisa Rice take you inside the mindof 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." They explorethe 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'llhear 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 theycould trust you to truly listen.
