Moms know: it's never been tougher to be the parent of a teenager. Slammed doors. Cell phones and Facebook. Surging hormones. How can a mom build a great relationship with her teen? With humor and biblical wisdom, Susie Davis guides frazzled moms through the stormy teen years. This seasoned mother of three shows how to effectively influence teens without irritating them, offers scriptural help for tough situations, and shares prayers and promises from Scripture that will encourage even the most discouraged moms. Readers will discover how to set reasonable limits and cultivate fair-minded expectations. Mothers will gain better perspective on a teen's emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and physical development, while learning to become the mom God designed them to be.
