Overview

Is your son on his way to becoming a good man?

The teen years are a vital stage for your son. But these years can also make a mom feel like she has lost influence in her son's life. How can you be sure you're doing everything you can to help your son grow into a mature and responsible adult?

In That's My Teenage Son, you will find the encouragement and wisdom you need to help your son become a man of character. Parenting expert Rick Johnson teaches you about

the emotional life of your boy
what changes are taking place in his body
how to help him develop healthy sexuality
what boys fear most
what traits he needs to learn to grow into a good man
how to communicate with him
how to positively influence his spirituality

The teen years can be tumultuous. With the understanding gleaned from this insightful book, you can positively influence your son's life--in a way that will last him a lifetime.

"This excellent book will help you understand why your son is acting the way he acts. Rick Johnson gives you great insight into the inner workings of boys' brains and bodies. I highly recommend this book."--Jim Burns, PhD, president, HomeWord; author of Teenology and Teaching Your Children Healthy Sexuality

"The singular issue of our time is a deficit of real men. In this powerful book you will find the prescription for authentic manhood, written by a real man. Moms can take hope as they find help and insight into helping their boy become the man he is intended to be."--Tony Rorie, founder/CEO, Men of Honor/Ladies of Honor
