In the updated, revised version of his popular book, best-selling author and family expert Joe White offers sobering information for this most serious of times. Children are being exposed to dangers outside the home that most parents are unaware of until they accidentally find some shred of evidence -- a cigarette butt, a half-smoked joint, or an obscene letter from an unknown lover. Kids are feeling lonely, ugly, unaccepted, and scared. While smiling on the outside, they often feel deserted on the inside -- even by their parents.White's insights into parenting and what kids really want from their parents will change not only how Christians think about their families but how they treat and raise the priceless jewels God has placed in their care. This critically acclaimed, crucially important work is a convicting, how-to book on raising children in homes of faith, love, security, and commitment. It's no wonder Dr. James Dobson said of Joe White: "No one knows more about teenagers in America."
