Although I don't intend for my children to have dating relationships, at least while living under my roof, but more of a heavily chaperoned courtship situation when they decided they are ready to marry in the next couple of years, this book was AMAZING!
He wrote this book as a way to help parents understand the way that teens view dating. It is chock full of statistics and facts about WHY the things that teenage girls think are true are just myths. These myths range from "If I had a boyfriend I would be happy" to "Love and sex are the same". My favorite part of this book is the insane number of statistics he uses to back up his advice. I know statistics can be manipulated, but I love them anyway.
Something different about this book from many that I read is that while he does make some references to God and Bible verses, as well as sharing that he is a Christian, it isn't really a Christian book. While that in and of itself doesn't bother me, in fact I kind of like it when a book that has the potential to help people make good decisions for their family isn't religious in nature, so that more people will benefit from it, one thing he said troubled me: The Bible is Not Enough. It is true that most people will be edified by reading books that expand on Biblical principles, but it seems wrong to say that the Holy Word of God is not sufficient. I think it could have been put in a less uncomfortable manner.
That is literally my only complaint. I would recommend this book to anyone with children that will be dating in the future, even if you plan to use the courtship model. It will give you the facts to share with your children as to why you have made the decisions you have made.
I was given this book free of charge from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
