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.
