Being a parent of a teenager can be very tough. When my son entered adolescence, my husband and I found ourselves wondering who this new person was that lived in our home. He was not the same little boy that we knew…he didn’t want hugs, he found us embarrassing, he questioned everything. I would feel so helpless at times and frustrated, feeling like I was failing as a parent. This book has helped my relationship with my son in so many ways!
I had heard many things about the 5 love languages but had never read about them. The concept is accepted and used by both Christian and non-Christian circles. It really helps to know our love languages when relating to each other. This book breaks down each love language and helps you identify your teen’s primary love language. I immediately used the things I learned with my son and I feel like our relationship is already improving. There is also a very helpful chapter on anger and teenagers that was very informative.
The book is an easy and quick read. I highly recommend it for all parents of teenagers. It was truly a blessing for me to read.
My Rating: 5 stars
I received this book from Moody Publishers to review.
