An Insider Look at the Parent Teen-Relationship
“The Heart of Your Teen” is an insightful and inspiring guide for parents of teenagers. Written by Lissy Rienow, daughter of Visionary Family Ministries founders Dr. Rob & Amy Rienow, this book provides a teenager’s perspective on the challenges and emotional roller coaster of parenting a teen. With her heart for families, Lissy shares her own experiences and biblical principles to help parents strengthen their relationship with their teen.
Lissy conducted interviews with Christian teenagers from around the world to gather their perspectives on what parents did well and what they wished was done differently. From dating relationships to social media and technology, Lissy covers the topics that often generate tension and conflict in parent-teen relationships. This book is not an expert guide on parenting, but rather a resource to encourage, inspire, and equip parents to build a life-long, Christ-centered relationship with their teenager.
