A Guide to Successfully Parenting a Defiant Teen Without Giving Up or Giving In

Defiant, out-of-control teenagers are holding families hostage to their selfish demands. It would be easy to judge the parents of these teens as ineffective and even easier to label the kids as bad seeds, the symbols of a self-centered generation. But the truth is that even solid, Christ focused families are not immune to the turmoil created by rebellious teenagers.

Every day, family counselors across the country see well-intentioned parents who are driven to their wits' end by the daily struggle against their children's unmanageable behavior, desperate for a shred of hope that things can change. They also see teenagers whose lives hold great promise, but who need help navigating their way to maturity.

In Toe-to-Toe with Your Teen, Dr. Jimmy Myers offers fresh hope to disheartened parents who are doubtful that they can make a difference in their teen's life. He lays out proven, specific strategies to help parents put a stop to unruly behavior, exert their God given authority and parent their teen to success.

Right off the bat in Toe to Toe With Your Teen: A Guide to Successfully Parenting a Defiant Teen Without Giving Up or Giving In, Dr. Myers, a licensed professional counselor, explains that the book was not written for the parents of teens who chafe at their parents' directives with the occasional smart mouth comment, but rather for the parents of teens who are crawling out of the bedroom window at night and getting arrested. He provides a diagnostic tool, the Adolescent Defiance Scale, to help parents separate teen behavior into ranges or normal, defiant, extremely defiant and criminally defiant.

For the parents of the defiant, Myers offers compassion and hope. He gives practical advice and valid strategies to help parents help their kids. Any parent would benefit from reading this excellent book.

Your children are worth the work!  Sep 27, 2009
Dr. Myers shares practical and realistic ways to help every child (before and after the teen years) learn to control her/his emotions and behaviors. It is our responsibility as parents to shape our children into the leaders they can become. This text helps every parent learn to recognize our own parenting style, the love/learning styles of our children and how we can work through those differences with accountability and without blame and anger. As a public school educator and administrator through 2 decades, I see the posiibility of these techniques to change the lives of our most vulnerable souls. Dr. Myers gives sound advice for all prospective parents, parents, grandparents and everyone who loves children.
 
No nonsense parenting.  Aug 18, 2009
Great practical parenting advice. Made me take a good long look at how I handled issues in the past. I've read it once and I'm going to read it again. It's an easy read. IT JUST MAKES SENSE! I'm going to gift it to family and friends. It's never too late to be the parent/person God wants you to be.
 
Excellent parenting tool!  Aug 16, 2009
Dr. Myers' book definitely fills a void in the Christian parenting genre, giving a down-to-earth approach to an extremely difficult yet common problem among countless families in today's society. It offers hope by giving step-by-step instructions to frustrated parents that have reached their limits with their defiant teens.

As a reference librarian, I will not hesitate to recommend Toe-to-Toe with Your Teen at every opportunity to parents of children of all ages. Dr. Myers, your book was long overdue and will be a valued tool for families.
 
Greatest book on parenting I have ever read  Aug 13, 2009
This book has empowered me to be the parent God intended me to be. I have shared this book with family and friends and cannot say enough about how it has impacted my spiritual walk and family in a positive way. I highly recommend this read to all parents and grandparents no matter how old your child may be!
 
Must read for parents of teens!  Aug 11, 2009
