|Great Stuff for Parents Jan 18, 2007|
|This is a little dated, and yet it is timeless information. It would be best to use this at the suggested time, before your kid hits puberty. However, just the fact that you will be spending some quality, alone time with your child is huge. Highly recommend this for any parent to use. Especially since so many parents just hope this phase will pass, and they won't have to really deal with the issues of puberty.|
|Good Advice for Teens Feb 7, 2006|
|I purchased this book for a niece who is almost twelve and has recently lost her mother because of a traffic accident. This book offers good advice to young people who wish to make wise, godly choices. I, like Dr. Dobson, value the Bible-based teachings that this country was founded on. Secular people will not like this book. |
|Outstanding experience for pre-teens Jan 18, 2006|
|My wife took our 10 year old daughter (5 years ago, shopping trip), and I took my 11 year old son (1 year ago, snowmobiling) on overnights, as suggested. Our kids considered it a rite of passage and looked forward to the trips with great anticipation. |
Dobson teaches about the many changes of adolescence, which has helped each of our teens to avoid the many pitfalls of that age(so far!). We have loaned the tapes to many friends, and each have been pleased with the experience.
Many ask when to do this trip with their child. Dobson recommends right before puberty- when the child will still think sex is "gross", but old enough to have interest and understand.
This sure beats the talks our parents had with us!
|Typical rightwing garbage Aug 24, 2005|
|The book pretty much presents itself the opposite of what it claims to be about. How can you just expect teenagers to avoid the dangers if you don't allow them to be well educated about it. Remember the "Just say no" program that was supposed to bring down drug addiction? Well, telling teenagers simply not to do it only encouraged more of the same and it's certainly no different when it comes to sex. No wonder the Bible belt has higher cases of teen pregnancy for following Dobson's pathetic advice whereas the West coast and the Northeast have far lower numbers and percentages of teen pregnancy by providing sex education to students. If you're going to read this book, be warned that the author is just another rightwing special interest hack.|
|8 CD package Nov 10, 2004|
|This is the 8 CD Package Family CD Pack. I don't know why they added the word "abridged" to the title but it includes everything that was on the cassette tape set.|
Here's the contents -
CD 1 - for parents, with guidelines on what to expect and what to say.
CDs 2-7 - for young people ages 9 to 14, covering important topics.
CD 8 - for parents to listen to first, with answers to the questions young people ask.
This is a *great* series created by a man who is a medical doctor, a family councelor, a father and a Biblically based Christian.
This series covers *everything* to help your child (and yourself) survive the approaching adolescent storms.
