If you’re the parent of a teenager, you need all the help you can get. How do you help your children make wise choices? How do give your teenagers freedom to make their own choices while still providing a guiding hand? How do you invest your time and energy in ways that make an eternal difference in your children’s lives? Walt Mueller delivers the goods in 99 Thoughts for Parents of Teenagers, a no-holds-barred look at the good, bad, and ugly aspects of parenting teenagers. Drawing on his experience as a parent of four children who have passed through their teenage years, Walt shares wisdom, thoughts, insights, and suggestions for making the teenage years count. In addition, Walt draws on the knowledge they’ve gained through the Center for Parent/Youth Understanding (cpyu.org/), which Walt founded more than three decades ago. CPYU is a nonprofit organization committed to building strong families by bridging the cultural and generational gap between parents and teenagers. If you’re a parent, you’ll want to read, devour, and absorb the dynamic truths in this book. And if you’re a youth worker, you’ll want to get this book into the hands of parents in your ministry to guide them, encourage them, and give them insights on fulfilling God’s great call to raise children who pursue a Jesus-centered life.
