Publisher Comments:

Listen Up, Dads! Your Teen Is Talking to You! As exasperating as parenting can be during these volatile years, your teen is depending on you for steady faithfulness, love, and guidance. And because teens often find words elusive and expression difficult, they probably haven't told you the things they wish you somehow automatically knew. So let Dad, If You Only Knew...be your guide. Josh Weidmann, just out of the teen years himself, joins his father, James, to help dads understand where their kids are coming from. It's a messy world they live in, and meeting them in it is no simple task. But knowing these essentials now makes fatherhood eight times easier! Welcome to Your Teen's World It doesn't matter if you have the most picture-perfect, ideal-in-every-way teen or one who's in full-swing rebellion. That teen you love is a "riddle wrapped in a mystery." No father can know what his teen is really thinking. That's why youth communicator Josh Weidmann teamed with his father, Jim, to help you bridge the gap. In Dad, If You Only Knew...you'll get an open, honest glimpse inside the teen mind. Josh's extensive research, combined with pointed direction from a father's heart, provide you with the practical guidance you need to establish a healthy, thriving father-teen relationship. It's one you desire, your teen needs, and you both can't afford to miss. Story Behind the Book "The resounding cry of teens for their fathers rings in my ear. I have been speaking to youth for five years and the greatest void I see in teens' lives is the one left by their dad. I am only twenty-three years old myself, and to this day I can say that my dad is the most influential man in my life. Because of his impact, I have asked him share in this book. We have written this message in hopes of helping dads reengage in the vital father-teen relationship." -Josh Weidmann
