Theoretical talking

If one really has a teenager at home and needs practical advice, find and buy another book. This is just talking how important the time and parent role is without giving any practical tool to use in everyday life. Audio is flat and boring.

Teenagers have it hard, too

I think it needn't be said, but dealing with teenagers can be a challenge. I like the approaches taken offered in the book to help raise teenagers that are more confident, well-rounded, and most importantly, communicative. It also has important reminders for parents to understand their teenagers and what they are experiencing as teenagers. I especially liked the recommendation of influencing your teenager to join theater!

Easy to listen read - great information

This book serves as an excellent tool to use with teenagers. Having a boy and girl myself, the disciplining and communication styles are much different as to what can be effective. I thoroughly enjoyed focusing on my teenage boy through this book and will be implementing many of the ideas recommended in this book.

Necessary Read for Parents of Teen Boys

I never had boys, but my sister has two and her oldest just turned 13. Its a different world nowadays with computers and social media and this book prepares parents to talk candidly with their sons about all the challenges and dangers out there. It is so important to keep tabs on their mental health and show them how to talk about feelings and emotions. I loved reading this and learned a lot and am definitely going to share this with my sister. Must read if you have boys!

The opposite of what I wanted

I wanted a book to help me help my son stay resilient in a world with so many confused adults pushing their predatory agenda on children. What this book does is teach parents to teach their children gender isn’t relevant. It is. God doesn’t make mistakes. No thank you, I will pass on this book.

A different approach

I have got through a lot of parenting teen books on audible in my commute time. This one was different to my usual approach/style (which I’d say is attachment parenting-ish).
One frustration was the narrators voice. She sounds different in the book to the sample. In the book she sounds like an airline hostess, so is difficult to concentrate on.
The ideas were interesting and good (I try to take something from all the parenting books I read). If you’re not religious though be aware there are quite a few religious references, scripture etc (I’m not religious).

Great read for parents of teenagers

This is a great book for navigating teenage boys who would rather spend all day playing video games than have anything to do with you. I feel like my son's PS5 is an extension of him sometimes, but he doesn't get my point of view. This book is a holistic look at parenting in the modern world, and not some throwback to a forgotten age which isn't coming back. Thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

Parenting made easier.

There is no single formula to parenting, but there are some general principles you can use, along them, a willingness to change and grow with your little one. This book is filled with tips and advice that you can adapt to ease raising teen boys a little bit. I would recommend it to anyone who has found themselves leaning toward being overly strict with their boys. There is a wake-up call for you in here.

I have the audiobook; wish I also had the written!

This book is helpful for parents to understand whether their teen son is on track, who may occasionally ask themselves, “Is this behavior even normal?” There sure can be moments in a family with teens that feel confusing and chaotic, so I appreciated the practical examples showing how to improve the ways we guide our boys on the path to adulthood.

I am reviewing the audio version. I know I can put bookmarks in an audiobook, but I would have enjoyed having a written copy of this book to read along while I listened and so that I could refer to it more easily. For this reason, and because I rely heavily on my sight, I wish I had bought the written format. I thought the audiobook had a pleasant voice that was calm, easy to listen to, and matter of fact.
