Holding a family together when it seems the world is falling apart is the challenge faced by parents of today's teens. Their children face a level of evil in their everyday world that their parents can't imagine, don't understand and often misjudge. When the cultural divide threatens to invade a family it is easy for parents to feel lost and alone, and without a plan to survive. Parents don't know to intervene effectively when their teen spins out of control.
Fortunately, teen-expert Mark Gregston understands the effects of today's confusing culture on teens and offers the right kind of help in his newest book, Parenting Teens in a Confusing Culture. Mark answers 32 tough questions asked by parents of teenagers, with his usual wit and the biblical wisdom of the ages.
