A Road Map for Parenting in the Troubled Years
It is never too late for parents to reach their teenager or young adult. Licensed counselor Connie Rae draws from professional and personal experience to provide insight, encouragement, and advice. Offering wise counsel and a reassuring tone, she helps parents better understand their child's temperament, their own parenting style, and the developmental process their child is going through. She also discusses the world in which their teenager is growing up, which is very different than many parents realize. Each chapter ends with a list of practical steps and a prayer, giving parents wise advice but also offering hope through the process.

Review: Hope for Parents of Troubled Teens: A Practical Guide to Getting Them Back on TrackUser Review - Christianbook.com
Connie Rae draws on her own experiences of parenting in this book. She walks you through how to deal with your troubled teen, no matter their problem. Her insights are very helpful, such as telling you what to say and what not to say to help restore your relationship with your teen. I do not have any kids, however I work with teens every single day. This is an excellent source of information and help in dealing with those teens that are extremely rebellious as well as those that you can see the rebellion just starting. Rae forces you to look at yourself first before reaching out to your kid and their spiritual life. Teens have needs and we as the adults in their lives need to be willing to get down and dirty to help them through their struggles. I'm thankful for Rae taking the time to write this book and to give help to others who may seem like there is no end in sight. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a desire to make an impact in a teenager's life. I received a complimentary copy of this book for review from the publisher.
