Overview

Rebellion. Drugs. Alcohol. Promiscuity. Antisocial behavior. Is your teenager caught in any of these destructive traps? Has it turned your home into a war zone? You've fried everything you can think of--rules, bargaining, rewards, threats--but nothing works. At least, not for long. And now you're tempted to give up.

Before you surrender, know this: There's hope. Blending street-wise understanding with biblical truths, Miles McPherson presents uncommon guidance for parents who don't know where to turn. The goal isn't to "fix" your wayward teenager. Rather, you will learn how to help your child want to change his or her rebellious ways. The fact is, misbehavior is like cancer--spiritual cancer. Everyone has the cellular capacity for cancer, but not everyone experiences uncontrolled cell growth. The same is true about teens and their behavior.

Your family is in the midst of a spiritual battle. Parenting the Wild Child will help you understand the destructive lies you and your teenager may be tempted to believe. It will bring help and hope to the turmoil you are facing.
