Publisher's Summary

Who is your teenager listening to? Teenagers today are bombarded by messages from their peers, the Internet, music, movies....the list goes on. As parents, you may wonder if your words mean anything at all. If so, take heart: all research indicates that the most significant influence on the life of a teenager comes from his or her parents. Yes—parents! In this updated volume, marriage and family expert Dr. Gary Chapman lays out the tools you need to communicate with your teenager. As Dr. Chapman states, “At the root of much teenage misbehavior is a teen’s empty love tank. I am not suggesting that parents do not love their teenagers; I am suggesting that thousands of teenagers do not feel that love. For most parents, it is not a matter of sincerity but rather lack of information on how to communicate love effectively on an emotional level.” Starting with the world in which your teenager lives, Dr. Chapman walks through the emotional needs of teenagers and how you can best express your love to them. You’ll learn how to identify your teenager’s love language, how to address their unique need for independence and responsibility, how to combat anger and set up boundaries, and how to best parent your teenager if you are a single parent or a blended family.

Still up-to-date!

This book is about not only loving your teenager, but also about learning how to demonstrate your love in a way they feel they are loved. Sometimes at home with all the rules and responsibilities, it is hard to appreciate your rebel teen, let alone show them they are appreciated.
When I started this book, I had already listened to 5 Love languages of children, and 5 love language for couples, thus I thought it would repeat itself, but it didn't.
This one has a great approach for teens, and if you are one of those renitent parents who is struggling with his/her teen at home, you need to get this book and absorb every ounce of knowledge this book has to offer.
With the advance of modern life, it gets harder and harder to understand your teen, but this book presents simple things and strategies you can do with your teen in order for you to have a more harmonious domestic environment.
This book is especially aimed at helping parents not only to learn to show their kids' love language, but also to understand their teen's. If you are not a parent, but want to understand the teens around you, and how to show your love for them in a way they get it, this is a great source of knowledge. I recommend it.

Not really for Homeschoolers

We just read this as our pick in our Dads and kids book club (homeschooling moms get the night off!). We chose it because we have a number of young adults, a.k.a Teens, and thought that this version would be more applicable for them than the original. The 5 Love languages was fantastic as usual. However, the parenting tips simply did not apply to our group. The kids were appalled at the teens' behaviors that were portrayed in the book. I'm not saying home schooled kids can't act up, but not the way they were described in the book. If you are a homeschooler, you will want to read this in advance. I think the original would be better for youth to read. It did have some good parenting tips. I would like to see a version of this written FOR young adults.

Great Support

Very insightful and supporting. The narration is brilliant and encouraging. It is a book that is Never too late to read regardless of how old your children. It gives you hope when you feel you are doing everything wrong and support and knowledge to make a change.

We all have to keep learning, just like our children.

Embrace the change and let us raise a strong future.
