For Parents Only by Shaunti Feldhahn and Lisa A. Rice


This book was so insightful and well done! This is a great book for those who are blessed to have a preteen or teenager at home. It is full of helpful information about what is really going on in their mind, so that you can better understand them. I really enjoyed reading more about what my child is thinking and going through, because it is definitely a different world for them than it was for me. If you would like one of these books for yourself, leave a comment. I will draw a winner on Friday, November 7th to celebrate the end of my first semester back at college!


About the Book:


For every bewildered parent, there’s a kid longing to be understood.What parent hasn’t occasionally looked at their beloved but bewildering offspring and wondered, "What in the world is he thinking?" or "Why is my sweet little girl acting like that?"


In this remarkable book, Shaunti Feldhahn and Lisa Rice take you inside the mind of teens and preteens through the same innovative approach that seized national attention in the best-selling books For Women Only, For Men Only, and For Young Women Only. They explore the results of a nationwide survey and personal interviews with more than 1,000 real-life teens and tweens to tackle those things parents often don’t “get” about their kids. You’ll hear first-hand about the longings that drive your kids’ seemingly illogical decisions, the truth behind those exasperating “attitude problems,” and what your children would tell you if they could trust you to truly listen.


About the Authors:

Shaunti Feldhahn is a nationally syndicated newspaper columnist, public speaker, and a best-selling author whose books include For Women Only. After working on Wall Street and Capitol Hill, this mother of two now applies her analytical skills to illuminating surprising truths about relationships.


Lisa A. Rice is the associate editor of Christian Living magazine, the mother/foster mom of three teenager girls, and one teenage boy, and an experienced screenwriter and producer. She’s also the coauthor, with Shaunti, of For Young Women Only.


This book would make an excellent choice for a Bible study group of women with preteens or teenagers and as a gift for Christmas. Leave a comment to win one of two copies that I am giving away or you can purchase one here.


Smiles and Loves! Janis
