Publisher's Summary

Parenting teens is one of the most challenging seasons of parenting, isn’t it? While this can be a difficult time of transition for parents and teens, there is hope. You can parent well and build a stronger relationship even through the teen years.

After 30 years of parenting five children and 20 years of working with teens, Connie Albers has witnessed the negative impact of well-intentioned but misguided parenting styles, all focused on managing teens rather than guiding them. But through learning to focus on the hearts of your teens, you can avoid those pitfalls and build relationships that last beyond the transition years as you intentionally learn about, connect with, and listen to your teens. In a world filled with distractions and devices, it is possible to guide their hearts and remain the primary influence in their lives. In Parenting Beyond the Rules, you will discover how to raise a teen according to his or her strengths, talents, and personality type, as these things equip teens to manage life.

Join Connie Albers in discovering practical solutions for every parent trying to raise a responsible, godly teenager.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Every parent with Teens needs to read this

Have two teens. I heard Connie in the Homeschool Solutions podcast and instantly knew she would be someone I would want to glean from. She wrote this book after her own kids where out of the Teen years. I learned so much and have shifted my mindset and parenting. I want my children’s hearts while they navigate learning how to launch into adulthood.

A must-read for parents of teens

This book is life-giving for parents of teens. Read it in the tween years, in the thick of teens, and even as you finish those teens years. There is so much encouragement and practical help for every stage you’ll want to read it over and over again.

Wonderful

Great book! Tons of great insight and advice for cultivating relationship with our teens rather than a battle over control. My teens range from 13-18, and this book left me feeling encouraged and inspired to connect with them on both ends of the teen years. I definitely recommend this read!

Loved this book

Written from the heart and experience. This book has given me such great insight into how the teen years will go and how to form a great connection and lasting relationship. I will be listening to this book over and over again
