Truths Your Daughter Needs to Know to Date Smart, Avoid Disaster, and Protect Her Future
by Daniel Anderson, Jacquelyn Anderson
This is a book that I will need to re-read a few times in order to fully process all that is in it. I was impressed with the way the book was set up and by the co-writing of the father and daughter team. Although the author is a Christian and he does make a couple of references to a few Christian beliefs that he personally holds, this book is not written from a “religious” point of view. Instead the authors have used experience that they have gained over the years as educators in the public school system, working with teens, and through personal experience to break down many “myths” that can cause problems for teen girls.
I thought that the “myths” were explained and discussed very well. The authors point out how important it is to have an honest and open relationship with your children, talking about the types of situations and decisions that begin with the dating scene. Sometimes using humor and sometimes the story of a former student or friend, the authors share good recommendations. This book delves into some scary topics and some tips to address these situaions, as well, and hopefully avoid them, too. This book was a wealth of good information.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Few topics are more difficult for parents to discuss with their daughters than dating and relationships. Due to their lack of knowledge about the world their teens face coupled with the scant dating information they received as teens, many parents feel ill-equiped to guide their daughters through the minefield that is teen dating.
In The 10 Myths of Teen Dating, this father and daughter team combines the latest scientific research with poignant, personal stories to help parents engage their daughters in wise conversations. Weaving in solid biblical truths with practical application and discussion starters, Daniel and Jacquelyn seek to equip parents to teach their daughters how to date for today … and tomorrow.
