Defiant, out-of-control teenagers are holding families hostage to their selfish demands. It would be easy to judge the parents of these teens as ineffective and even easier to label the kids as bad seeds, the symbols of a self-centered generation. But the truth is that even solid, Christ focused families are not immune to the turmoil created by rebellious teenagers. Every day, family counselors across the country see well-intentioned parents who are driven to their wits’ end by the daily struggle against their children’s unmanageable behavior, desperate for a shred of hope that things can change. They also see teenagers whose lives hold great promise, but who need help navigating their way to maturity. In Toe-to-Toe with Your Teen, Dr. Jimmy Myers offers fresh hope to disheartened parents who are doubtful that they can make a difference in their teen’s life. He lays out proven, specific strategies to help parents put a stop to unruly behavior, exert their God given authority and parent their teen to success.

From the Author:

This book is not your typical collection of Christian principles for parenting adolescents.  The bookstore shelves are full of wonderful books on that subject by such authors as Dr. James Dobson, Paul David Tripp and Ross Campbell, M.D., just to name a few.  During the past 30 years of working with teenagers and their families, I've read most, if not all, of those parenting books.  I've taught from them, recommended them and benefited personally from many of them.     However, this book you're about to read is quite different, and the differences may be striking.  This is because I'm not writing to the parent who is looking for a more engaging home devotional for their teen, or to the parents who are seeking ways to get their child to help out more around the house.     Instead, I'll be sharing what I've learned while working with a particular type of teenager and their parents.  You many find some of their stories disturbing.  You may believe my tone is at time inappropriately harsh or the proposed strategies too extreme.  If so, I can certainly understand where your're coming from.  However, I believe you picked up this book for a reason.  Chances are the reason is that your child one one of the estimated six million teenagers who could be considered exceptionally defiant.  Your home is one of the estimated three million homes affected by the constant turmoil and agitation that comes with raising an exceptionally defiant teen.  If so, this book is designed for you:  the parent whose life has been turned upside down by an exceptionally defiant teenage and who longs for a return to normalcy.

From the Back Cover:

Help! My kids are out of control!  Is your defiant, rebellious teenage daughter holding your family hostage to her selfish demands? Does your son look less each day like the good-natured child you remember and more like someone who uses rage and threats to get what he wants? Do you feel as if you have lost you God-given authority over your family and wonder how you can get it back? Help is on the way!   Every day, Dr. Jimmy Myers, a family counselor based in Austin, Texas, meets parents of defiant teens who are at the end of their rope.  They believe they have tried everything to rein in their children's unmanageable behavior, and they are desperate for a shred of hope that things can change.  Deep inside they know that their teens' lives hold great promise, and they want to find the right tools to help their children grow into mature and healthy adults.  In his more than 25 years in ministry to teens and their parents, Dr. Myers has discovered that it's never too late to turn a family around. In Toe to Toe with Your Teen, he shares stories of parents who were driven to their wits' end but found fresh hope in their struggle with a rebellious teenager, and he offers his proven strategy for putting a stop to unruly behavior, exerting your God-given authority and regaining control of your family.  You can have the peaceful home you've always wanted. In Toe to Toe with Your Teen, Dr. Myers shows you how.
