Life in the Middle Years Book

Life in the Middle Years
Parenting Your Eight to Twelve Year Old

The middle-years (defined as the period of growth and development extending from ages 8 to 12) is one of the most amazing phases of childhood and unsuspicious time for parents. It is a season in which that son or daughter in your home is too old to be called a child, but too young to be labeled an adolescent. From a growth and developmental standpoint, the middle years is a period in which children begin the long process of metamorphosis—moving away from childhood dependencies, associations, and interests, and moving toward a self-reliance directed more and more by the beliefs and values of their home life. Life in the Middle Years brings the needed knowledge and understanding that can help any parent make wise training decisions. Session and chapter summaries can be found HERE

To what extent do parents encourage or discourage the storm and stress of adolescence? Reaching the Heart of Your Teen looks at the many factors that make living with a teenager a blessing or a curse. It exposes the notions of secular myth and brings to light the proven how-to applications of building and maintaining healthy relationships with your teens. Whether you worry about your teen and dating or your teen and drugs, the principles of Reaching the Heart of Your Teen are appropriate and applicable for both extremes and everyone in between. They do work!
