Bonding with your Teen through Boundaries
Discover a balanced, biblical way to set appropriate boundaries that will prepare your teen to live an independent, self-controlled, successful life. June Hunt, one of the world’s leading Christian counselors, shows you how. Using scores of tough real-life scenarios, June helps you learn to use boundaries—each linked to specific repercussions and rewards—to guide your teen through four critical areas of life: home, school, personal, and social. Each scenario is followed by concrete advice on what to do and what to say. Once you communicate the boundaries, your teen has a choice: Cross them or stay inside. At that point, the teenager—not you, the parent—chooses to receive the repercussion or reward. Behavior becomes linked to consequences, building maturity, trust and security. This thoroughly revised and updated edition includes new material that addresses the ever-increasing impact of technology on teenagers. Practical and realistic in its tone, June’s biblical guidance helps you win—not a war, but a relationship of mutual respect.
