Item Description...
"I'll dress the way I want!" You wouldn't understand!" "I'm not going to church!" "You never trust me!" Comments like these evoke a host of responses from parents of adolescents: anxiety, anger, detachment, despair. But Eugene Peterson believes that these kinds of encounters offer important opportunities for parents and teens to grow closer to each other and to God. This book will help you view your son or daughter's teen years from a refreshing perspective. In addition to a wealth of positive, effective ways to deal with many of the problems and pains of growing up, this encouraging book offers an understanding of parent-adolescent relationships that will promote an atmosphere of communication, trust, frankness, forgiveness, love and harmony in your home. Study questions at the end of each chapter help you apply the practical, biblically based teaching offered here.

Publishers Description
Adolescence is a gift, writes author Eugene Peterson. "God's gift, to the parent in middle-age. This 'gift' dimension of adolescence is my subject. For adolescence is not only the process designed by the Creator to bring children to adulthood, it is also designed by the Creator to provide something essential for parents during correspondingly critical years in their lives. "Christian" parents are most advantageously placed to recognize, appreciate, and receive this gift God so wisely provides." In "Like Dew Your Youth" Peterson shows how adolescence is a time for parents to enjoy a deeper, richer relationship with their children and for both parents and children to grow in their relationships with Jesus Christ. In addition to its wealth of positive, effective ways to deal with many of the problems and pains of growing up, this insightful book offers an understanding of parent-adolescent relationships that will help promote an atmosphere of communication, growth, frankness, forgiveness, love, and harmony in the home. Study questions at the end of each chapter help readers apply Peterson's practical, Bible-centered teaching. There are also tips for using this material within the framework of parental support groups. "Like Dew Your Youth" provides a much-needed balm against the fear and anxiety bred by traditional views of this exciting period of life and properly orients parents and teenagers within this God-provided environment for spiritual growth.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Full of insights  Aug 12, 2005
This is a reallt great book for parents and pastors who need to work with youths. It is balanced, graceful, and full of insights. It's one of the books I want to read again and again to make sure I do not lose sight of any of Peterson's advices.
Peterson reminds us all gifts, even teenagers, are from God  Sep 29, 1999
Chapter by chapter, Peterson presents each teenage challenge to parents (10 of them), and answers them with scripture and understanding. If we cannot draw on the example of Jesus to relate to our teenagers, then what good is our faith? As Christians we are uniquely gifted to deal with life, especially teenage sons and daughters. I was impressed with the examples. I recommend this book for parents *and* for teenagers, as both should come to a better understanding of each other after reading it.
