For Parents Only *Book Giveaway*

I'm participating in a book review and wanted to tell you all about this inspiring book. It's called 'For Parents Only' by Shaunti Feldhahn and Lisa A. Rice

Shaunti Feldhahn is known for unlocking the mysteries of relationships for men and women. Now she turns to a parent’s relationship with a child, particularly a child of the opposite sex. Drawing on the results of a nationwide survey of kids and teenagers, she explores questions such as:·

What do moms need to understand about the “tough and tender” boy who values respect over love? ·

What do dads need to understand about their daughter’s need for affirmation? ·

What are the six biggest pet peeves teens have about their parents?

Understanding the answers to these and other important questions can help parents make the holidays a time of celebration and unity, not strife and friction. For Parents Only offers a unique look into a child’s mind and frees readers to communicate in healthier ways as they discover that understanding their kids may not be as complicated as they think.

Lisa A. Rice is the associate editor of Christian Living magazine, the mother of two teenage girls, and a screenwriter and producer.

I just got this book the other day and I'm almost done. I can't wait to share my review with you all.

If you're a parent of a tween or teen and think, "Who are you and what have you done with my child?" then this would be the book for you. I have two extra copies to give away to my readers.

I want to know who would be interested in this book, but please know that I'd like for these two books to go to readers who sincerely desire to know what's in the head of your kids and how to help them. This isn't a giveaway for anyone who just wants a free book. I know this book will be helpful for a parent who REALLY needs this information.

Why does my child struggle with social circumstances? Why does she spout off in anger like she does? Why does she lie about where she's going? These are questions that are covered in this book and I believe it will help a parent understand their child better. Now before I give away too much info before my review date of Nov 26-30 I'll end with this:

Who needs this book? Please reply and let me know that you really need this book and leave me a contact e-mail addy and I'll contact you ASAP and send it out right away.

Hi Lisa! This sounds like a book I could use. Things have gone fairly smoothly with my 16 year old son, but I feel like I'm in a totally different ballpark when it comes to my 13 year old son. Whoever said parenting was easy? :) I could use some fresh insights of what would reach and speak to both of my boys, but particularly my 13 year old. Thanks for considering me.

With one boy and one girl, this is something I've always been interested in. I've heard good things about Shaunti Feldhahn. Sounds like a really good one.

We've read her other two books (For Men Only; For Women Only) and she was right on.

We have four kids, three of them teens (boys). It certainly is confusing enough figuring them out, but more so since returning to the states and seeing not only how different US culture is, but also how it's changed since last time we were here.

I didn't know she had this book coming out, but I would certainly be interested in gleaning insight from it.

BTW, like your site! Found it on Faith Lifts.
