WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
Tragically, most parents do not realize how our nation's culture has changed and do
not know how to cope with it. Jimmy Myers does a masterful job in making this complex area more understandable to parents who read this book.

In my years of youth ministry, I have talked with many parents whose teenagers have seemed to morph into extremely defiant "strangers." They feel confused and guilty, and their pain is intense. I am so grateful that I can recommend this helpful resource to these parents. It is practical, thorough and, above all, hopeful. I believe it can begin real change.
