Book Review – What Your Son Isn’t Telling You


What Your Son Isn’t Telling You is a powerful book!  And, it couldn’t have come at a better time.  This book is written to moms of teenage sons, but it is definitely a must-read for dads, too.  The authors discuss the unique struggles of teenage boys.  While I was familiar with most of the struggles, I didn’t really understand the difference between the struggles of a teen boy and a teen girl.  Thank you to the authors for “unlocking" those secrets for me. 

Here’s what Bethany House has to say about the book:

Your son struggles with the constant pressure to prove himself--in the classroom, on the playing field, and especially among his friends. And while he may put up a tough exterior, deep inside he hungers for family support and connection. You long to be there for him, but chances are he's put up a formidable wall of silence, leaving you wondering how to break through.

In What Your Son Isn't Telling You, teen experts Michael Ross and Susie Shellenberger offer a rare glimpse into the secret lives of teen boys--behind-the-scenes footage you might miss in the day-to-day life of your son--accompanied by practical advice on how to provide the support and connection your son desperately needs.

This book is available from Bethany House for $13.99.  If you have a teenage boy, or if you will soon, I recommend reading this book.  It will open your eyes and give you some insight to the struggles your son could face in his teenage years.  The book is also packed with Biblical principles and foundations of truth in dealing with these struggles.  The authors give helpful advice in training your son to grow up to be a man of integrity as God would have him be.
