Stopped listening after the second chapter.

There are some serious Christian and conservative overtones in this book. For example, in the first chapter, the author notes that the happiest people in life are those who have accepted Jesus into their hearts. One of the evils of today's society, meanwhile, is the fact that teenagers "are confronted with gay and lesbian sex and told it's ok". Finally, sexually active teenagers are described as regretful, ashamed, and "used", and the author references "perverted sexual acts" as one of the many vices that teens are wont to get involved in without a strong, loving parental presence in their life. I'm assuming, based on the general vibes, that perverted sexual acts include everything other than (or maybe even included) heteronormative PIV sex.

Oh, also, one of the flaws of today's society is that Judeo-Christian morals aren't the bedrock of society, and that morals are now perceived to be secular. That's where it's all going wrong.

This book is probably incredibly helpful for some people... but frankly, I'm a little horrified.

My world just opened up

I am so glad that I purchased this book. I have a 13 year old boy and I’m a single mom doing it all on my own. I know that there are going to be some difficult times ahead, and I honestly feel like this will be my workbook for the next 7 years. Gary Chapman explains teenagers so well and really makes you think about yourself and how you parent. I have some work to do, but I’m not as scared anymore. I just purchased a hard copy so that I can refer to it regularly. #Audible1

Strong Religious Undertones / Good Ideas

I had a hard time listening to this to be honest. I didn't realize how religious the book was going to be so I kept leaving and going back to it. In addition to the religious undertones, it felt sort of outdated in the fact that they were pushing things like letting them only have sleepovers with same sex friends, etc. which doesn't really fit with our society today. What if your teen is gay? The book assumes you have a heterosexual privileged lifestyle. There is an example in the book that someones son made a huge mistake because he got a girl pregnant while in college and the girl wouldn't have an abortion despite his insistence and the parents were devastated that he ruined his life. Maybe it's just me, but it felt really out of touch on the real world examples.

Any time you are helping understand teenagers is a win. I took some ideas out of it, so it is definitely worth a listen to find out how to better communicate with your teen. I just really didn't agree with or connect with a lot of the undertones of the book.

If implemented? Magnificent!

As a family and marital therapist I wholeheartedly suggest following the practical guidance of this book will transform even healthier parent/teen relationships. Implementing the steps outlined will take patience, diligence and consistency over an extended period of time (far more than a few weeks)! Doing so may transform most relationships in your sphere of influence. Dr. Chapman also shares important insight about this development stage that will help you understand your teen. This seems to be lacking in so many other parenting books.

Helped shed much needed insight into the teen life.

I have read the 5 love languages before and was debating on whether purchased this audio book would help with my distant teen or not. I am glad I did. There was some much needed insight and self reflection. It was easy to listen to and already, within 1 week of practicing some of the suggestions for filling my teens love tank, I am experiencing positive reactions. I highly recommend this book, even to people (who like me) KNOW the 5 love languages.

Worth repeating!

This book was so helpful! It truly spoke to the things I’m currently experiencing with my teens (both good and bad). This book shines a light on parental flaws and points is down the path of better parenting -but it doesn’t let teens off the hook. I strongly believe that my family will be better for generations to come because of this book. I plan to listen to it as often as needed.

A must read for parents with teens or pre teens!

It's sad how many teens are treated in a way that ends up hurting them only because many parents don't know about what's in this book. These principles are a sure way to make sure your teen or pre teen feels your love for them.

Changing our lives

This is a must read if you've ever felt frustrated at your teen and they with you. I'd been praying about our relationship and heard God say, Love him. I was trying! This book gave traction to my good intentions!!! ---Mom

I loved this book. I'm about to listen to some chapters over again. The narrator was perfect. I wish every parent could and would read our listen to this book. Truly there is something beneficial for all.

COVERS MORE THAN THE 5 LANGUAGES

This is great! It exceeded my expectations & covered more than the 5 love languages. It included a lot of current issues teens & parents face. Great audiobook!
