The Author:

Paul Reisser, M.D., is a family physician in private practice with three decades of experience in primary care medicine. A member of Focus on the Family's Physicians Resource Council, he served as lead author of the Complete Guide to Family Health, Nutrition, and Fitness, and the best-selling Complete Guide to Baby and Child Care. The Reissers have been married since 1975 and are still enthused about that decision. They have two grown children and two grandchildren and live in Southern California.

My Opinion:
I don't quite have any teens yet but this book is very well written and will be a handy guide when my kids hit the teen years in 2013 and 2014.  I was able to take some of the info on body maturity and self concept and use it as a guide for the tween years. I know that I'll reference it often in the very near future.  It's very easy to understand and has a handy reference guide in the back according to topic.  As I was reading I started to reminisce about my teenage years and I'm praying my children make better choices then I did!  I'm sure with God, my husband and this guide we will get through the teen years. Notice I didn't say with no problems ;) I know we will have issues arise because every family does but God will lead and guide us and direct our paths as we travel through the teen years.  
This book can be purchased online by clicking here or can be found at most Christian bookstores.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars because it's so easy to find any subject and is well written!

Thanks for reading,
