The world of teenage boys is certainly one of mystery. Many parents don't understand their teenage sons and many teenage sons don't understand themselves. I remember my teen years and I can say with 100% certainty that I'm glad I don't have to go through them again. Peer pressure, bullying, raging hormones and identity crises - more often than not, each of these and more are part of the journey to manhood.

In What Your Son Isn't Telling You, Michael Ross and Susie Shellenberger attempt to guide p...more

If a person wants to know why we have such problems with our children during this period of their lives, this book provides a big part of the answer. Our culture is based of the Judeo Christian model that functions on the premise that there is something wrong with a person, and that needs to be rectified through the "grace" of some outside entity called God. This is a piece of magical thinking, a circularity since the God of Christian belief in the mainstream is so transparently a product of tho...more

What Your Son isn’t telling you, Michael Ross & Susie Shellenburger
I have two very young boys age 3 and 6…I was interested in reviewing this book as a mother and a youth worker. Although I know there is nothing new under the sun, I also acknowledge that our children face a myriad of things at younger ages. I was surprised at the scope and depth of this book in the issues it coversand it’s readability. It deals with so many issues and offers great biblical wisdom and insight into effectively...more

I have no children (yet), but as a professor, I have worked in different grades, from junior high school to postgraduate. The effects a teacher can have in students are always there, but they are even deeper in teenagers. I've realized that this period of boy's lives is a turning point; they are in search for their identity and come to realize that growing up has consequences and responsibilities. I've been able to observe that many teen boys act tough, but their inside is quite different - frag...more

If you are raising a son – you need this book.

This book will show you how to get connected in three basic areas and open up a deeper communication with your son. This book combines emails and letters the authors have received from teenage boys, and lays bare the struggles our young men face. It also tells you what you can expect as your son reaches certain a...more

This book was so hard for me to read! I'm not sure I'm ready for these coming years with four sons, but I'll trust in God to lead and guide me. After all, He first trusted me to be their mom.

I got this book because I have a son who will be 13 in a matter of months. I do have an older son already grown and out of the home, but I wanted to be able to understand my younger son better than I did my older one. The whole learning from our mistakes and making better choices as we grow was my motivation.

This book is a great eye opener for parents into the world of a young man struggling to become a man while still dealing with things as a teenager. I think every parent, mom and dad, should...more
