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

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.

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.

No interesting insights

Not an intelligent book. Just a bunch of cliches. Not scientifically based. I feel like every sentence that he writes has been written a million times before, and much of it isn't even true but just assumptions that people pass on to one another.

Love is important. God is love.

The narrator spoke well and the content was very informative and pertinent to raising teens in this age. Recommend it to other parents , teachers or persons who interact with teenagers.
