Having read dozens of such books over a 33 year ministry I believe that this is one of the sanest, wisest most humble books and one of the most helpful I have read. There's a great balance between biblical insight and parental experience. The author focuses on the heart more than techniques for changing behaviour.

Every parent should read this book! Especially if you're struggling and don't know why. It cuts right to the heart, revealing the 'idols' parents often create without realizing it, and which are stumbling blocks to the effective parenting we desire. If you want to know what is wrong with your teen, rather than what is wrong with yourself, don't read this book! After it convicts you thoroughly, however, it does give you hope and help. Refreshingly grounded in Scripture, Paul Tripp is also believable because he has raised 4 teens. I wish he had been more generous with his anecdotes, examples, and lists, but what he has included is right on target. I am thankful for the 'salt and light' this book has been to me, and I know my pre-teen will be also.

Don't be put off by the naff cover, this really is a very helpful book. Helpful, and also poignant, funny and insightful. As my own children begin the transition to adolescence I am eager to obtain wise advice to help me in my parenting, and would see reading good books as a key component of that. When I was in my mid-20s I spoke at parenting seminars and could do so with the memories of my own teen years still being fresh and real. The sad reality now is that I am nearly as close to retirement age as I am to my teens, and it becomes increasingly difficult to remember accurately what it felt like to be a teenager! Insightful authors like Tripp can help with this inevitable amnesia.

Raising kids is not really that complicated. We often think its terribly difficult, but lots of other people have done it before us - its not like we are pioneering new territory. But parenting is an activity that can generate a lot of stress and anxiety, and where there can be a lot of conflicting advice from those other parents who have gone before us. If we are to navigate the sometimes turbulent waters of parenting we need a clear biblically informed strategy for doing so, and Tripp helps provide this.

There are several pitfalls that (Christian) parents often stumble into. One that greatly aggravates me is low expectations - the assumption that all teens have to rebel, get bored with church and backslide. Other mistakes we can make are to think the goal of parenting is simply to raise children who will be reasonably socially acceptable adults, rather than seeing our role as being to raise disciples of Jesus.

If you are the parent of a confused self-centered hormonal teen then this is the book for you. Really focussed the heart on what it important - God and His glory.

So far has proved to be an eye opener. The teen years are an opportunity not a drag
