We provide our children with boundaries because we want to keep them safe and we want to teach them to make good decisions. While the boundaries themselves may change as our children grow older, the need for them does not. Parents need advice to navigate complex and difficult scenarios that may arise with their teen. June Hunt and Jody Capehart provide such advice in Bonding with Your Teen through Boundaries. Drawing on biblical principles, they show parents how to provide appropriate boundaries in four critical areas of a teen’s life: at home, at school, and in their personal and social lives. Each chapter opens with a real-life scenario followed by concrete advice on what to say and what disciplinary action, if any, to take with your teen. Practical and realistic in its tone, the book continually shows how discipline and boundaries are helpful catalysts for healthy bonding. This thoroughly revised and updated edition of Bonding with Your Teen includes new material that addresses the ever-increasing impact of technology on teenagers.

In Our Boundary, Dr. John Olesnavage explains why healthy relationships require healthy boundaries, and why boundaries must be flexible and whole to operate effectively. Dr. Olesnavage shares his research results and two boundary conditions that impede a person's ability to achieve healthy and satisfying relationships. He gives detailed descriptions of boundaries stuck in self defeating coping behavior and boundaries torn by trauma and loss. Dr. Olesnavage introduces Boundarytime, a therapeutic approach that repairs boundary holes and restores flexibility to boundaries that are frozen. His work, explained with numerous case examples, unlocks the healing power of boundary and affirms its role as a force for change and connection. This book offers hope and strategies for repairing damaged boundaries in children and adults. One chapter is specifically devoted to boundary repair with teens, and another chapter addresses boundary repair with couples. JOHN OLESNAVAGE, PH.D., is a licensed psychologist and Clinical Director of Behavioral Health Services with Great Lakes Recovery Centers in Marquette, Michigan. With over 30 years of agency and private practice work with children, adults, and families, Dr. Olesnavage is passionate about therapy. In 1995 he began investigating the dynamic, connecting role of boundary in relationship. His discoveries and their clinical application form the basis for a therapeutic approach called Boundarytime. This approach facilitates boundary repair and transformation to authentic living.

Your Teenagers Are Under Attack. Help Them Defend Themselves. The world presents an unflattering, one-sided picture of teenagers–rebellious, alienated, and hostile to adult guidance. Sadly, many Christian parents embrace this myth and refuse to provide the direction their teens hunger for. We want our sons and daughters to make godly choices, but we wrongly assume they have stopped listening to us. It’s hard to know how to lead our changeable and unpredictable teens–or if we should even try. Even well-meaning parents believe the myth that teens do best when they experiment with life and learn from their mistakes. No approach could be more destructive. The stormy years of adolescence are the worst time for parents to back off. This is the time when bad friends, unharnessed emotions, rebellion, and a long list of irreparable mistakes could ruin your teen’s life. More than ever, this is the time our sons and daughters need proactive and confident parents. Don’t Get Overwhelmed. Get Involved. No matter what your parenting history, Bold Parents, Positive Teens shows how you can get confidently back into the game–and stay there. Focusing on ten of the greatest challenges faced by teenagers today, this invaluable guidebook provides the clear direction and commonsense wisdom every parent needs to love and guide their teenagers while effectively addressing their teens’ deepest needs.

Over the decades, the lines separating young- middle-aged-, and older adults have blurred, as indicated by a broadening of the appropriate years for making life decisions. Not only are many people marrying later, but some are marrying earlier than ever. Overall, women giving birth later, but some are having children earlier in their lives. Older people are retiring later, but some are retiring at a younger age. The spread or variability (standard deviation) of age-based decisions has increased substantially, giving adults greater freedom from the traditional constraints of age. With these relaxed age norms has come a host of related social problems. The relaxation of age norms for adult decision-making has inadvertently blurred the boundaries between adults and teenagers, between teenagers and children. This generalization of the phenomenon throughout the life cycle is responsible for the adultification of childhood. Eight year old girls are, to an increasing extent, being treated as sexual objects; bullying peaks in the 6th grade; larger numbers of girls are having oral sex or sexual intercourse by the age of 15; the pregnancy rate for girls 13-15 is on the rise; we are in the process of dismantling the juvenile justice system in favor of adult forms of punishment; and more and more children are left without adult supervision in the afternoons, as though they were miniature adults who are capable of raising themselves. Jack Levin is the American Sociological Association’s 2009 Winner of the “Public Understanding of Sociology” Award. This short book communicates the power and importance of sociological thinking to major, worldwide social trends. Ideal for use in undergraduate courses such as introductory sociology, social problems, and social change as well as more advanced courses in population, or sociology of aging.

Give control back to God and get back to what you enjoy most–loving your teen. Parenting teenagers isn’t easy. No matter how much we love our kids and want to protect them, we cannot control them or their circumstances. But God is in control, and– particularly when we trust him–he can take care of our kids far better than we ever could. So what else can we do? We can pray. In fact, prayer should be our first response–because prayer is the most powerful tool at a parent’s disposal. That is what this book is about: releasing our teens to God’s control, learning to pray specifically and with confidence for their every need, and recovering the sense of humor that will help us face the situations that now cause us so much stress. This book includes: • lighthearted stories designed to help take the edge off of parenting your teenager • valuable insights on more than twenty areas of conflict you are likely to experience with your teen–from language, grades, and clothing to drugs, drinking, and smoking • specific prayer strategies to help you make a difference in your teen’s life • perspectives on the “hot” issues, from real teens • what the Bible has to say on each subject • tips from parenting experts • specific prayers to get you started • discussion starters to help open up dialogue with your teen Whether parents have never prayed for their teens, have prayed sporadically, or have prayed every day, now is the time to pray even more and in whole new ways–and Prayer Changes Teens will show them how.
