He's Almost A Teenager (Paperback)Peter Larson & Other
Fun, thoughtful questions and talking points that will lead to meaningful, natural conversations with your teenage son.
Do you know what your son really thinks about girls, school, God, his future? It's not easy to be sure, is it? Boys aren't known for being great communicators, especially entering their teen years. How do you connect with him on the things that are important to both of you?
Based on tried-and-true parenting wisdom, this book shares fun, thoughtful questions and talking points that lead to meaningful, natural conversations about
• physical and emotional changes your son is facing
• staying pure in an oversexualized culture
• using social media responsibly and much more.
This structured approach offers practical ways to bond with your son and encourage him in his faith, talk about the challenges he faces in school and with friends, and show him that you love him dearly before he enters the turbulent teen years.

Begin With the End in Mind
“Where is my sweet little guy? Who has taken up residency in his body? I don’t recognize this new attitude! He doesn’t listen and seems to question everything we ask him to do. It’s a full two years until he is a certified teenager, but all I get is a grunt when I ask him about his day. What will the teen years be like? Any help out there?”
Nervous parents are realizing the “golden years of childhood” are ending earlier and earlier. Their precious eleven-year-old is beginning to show symptoms of adolescence. They’re scared. They feel unprepared. They’re panicked and don’t know how to prepare for the coming storm.
