Overview


Change is an inevitable part of life. So why are most of us parents shocked and surprised when our daughters change in unexpected, dramatic, significant ways once they hit the teen years? Girls go through their most dramatic developmental changes during adolescence. And they need parents to be there, just as present and involved as when our little girls were, well, still little girls!

As you read through the pages of A Parent's Guide to Understanding Teenage Girls, veteran youth workers Brooklyn Lindsey and Mark Oestreicher will help you re-examine some assumptions and misunderstandings about this season of life. Then, from a place of trust in God, you will gain a fresh perspective on who your daughter is and who she's becoming.

This book explores the major changes of adolescence, the influence of parents and friends, the onslaught of feelings and how to respond, and the significance of celebrating milestones in a girl's life.

A Parent's Guide to Understanding Teenage Girls will offer wisdom, insight, and encouragement to respond well, react wisely, and engage effectively. This book is also an ideal resource to prepare you and your daughter for the impending season of change and transformation, if you aren't there quite yet.

Reading A Parent's Guide to Understanding Teenage Girls felt like jumping into a fast-moving river--it's not only extremely well-written, but the insights and advice Marko and Brooklyn offer touch on a reservoir of deep agreement in my soul. I have a middle-school daughter myself, and so much of this book exactly fits my experience of her changes and challenges. When I finished the book, and about every 60 seconds while I was reading it, I couldn't wait to tell my wife about it. Literally, I thought: "Finally, a parenting book that doesn't make me wince or talk-back to it..." Go get this little book, then tell your friends about it.
