9781419669866: The Back Door To Your Teen's Heart: Learning What They Need and Helping Them Find It

To the degree that kids can predict you, they will dismiss you. And, most likely, any of us who have ever lived with, taught, counseled, and loved adolescents have felt the sting of dismissal. It feels like everything we try bounces off the shell these kids develop around 10-12 years of age. Melissa Trevathan and Sissy Goff, both counselors with a combined 60 years of working with kids, lead us on a journey into the hearts of these adolescents. With laughter, Biblical truths, and a simple, but direct honesty, they help us walk through the back door and back into the lives of these kids we love.
