I am not a parent so this book was not written for me. This is not a bad book, but it was not extremely enlightening for me either. It briefly touches upon issues that I recall facing when I was a teenager, and may be especially advantageous for mothers who have obviously not had the same sorts of experiences. My parents "trusted" me too much when I was a teenager and made it too easy for me to get into trouble because as far as they knew I was a good kid. I would suggest that teaching kids how to trust by earning their trust, consistently being trustworthy, and thereby showing them how to be trustworthy is the best approach. Turning a blind eye, or giving in to their appeals for unearned trust will not have good results. Then again, I am not a parent, so what do I know? Overall, this is a good book and worth a read. ( )

though geared fro mothers I did get quite a bit out of this book, hoping to be ready when my son becomes a teenager ( )

NCLA Review - According to the authors, a father must understand his son's heart and mind in order to provide the support and connection he desperately needs. The authors' experiences teach three of most boy’s essential viewpoints: “Please Clue In: I'm not You!”, “Trust me, and I'll Trust You”, and “Stay Close and Let Me Breathe.” They suggest that your son's world is nothing like the world which you recall. Every teen boy struggles with constant pressure to prove himself. Advice offered here is for the parent to forget his world and concentrate on listening and trusting. Crucially, their closing chapters deal with tendencies toward rejection of Christianity. Rating: 3 —JT ( )

The world of teenage boys is certainly one of mystery. Many parents don't understand their teenage sons and many teenage sons don't understand themselves. I remember my teen years and I can say with 100% certainty that I'm glad I don't have to go through them again. Peer pressure, bullying, raging hormones and identity crises - more often than not, each of these and more are part of the journey to manhood.

In What Your Son Isn't Telling You, Michael Ross and Susie Shellenberger attempt to guide parents through the murky and often confusing waters of teenagers. The authors include many letters and testimonials of young men whom they know or have heard from who tell of situations that they are struggling in. Topics include things like peer pressure, lust, confidence, and anger.

The authors offer fairly sound advice in discussing the world of teenage boys. However, while the book had several good points, I found it covered many topics but only barely. The adage "a mile wide, but only an inch deep" comes to mind. Additionally, much of the book's content seemed to cover the stereotypical, moody, silent teenage guy. If you are reading this book to get insight about a particular teenager (maybe your son), unless he is a stereotypical teen, this book probably won't be much help.

Perhaps the biggest complaint that I have about the book is that it is really targeted to mothers of teenage boys. This wouldn't be as big an issue for me if the book's description or cover mentioned this. This omission becomes glaringly obvious even just a short way into the book. With topics like "How Moms Can Nurture Godly Dating" and "Mom to the Rescue," it is clear who the book's target audience is. Advice to dads is scant and indirect. If I were a dad looking for a book to help me with my teenage son, I would want to know this book wasn't targeted to me.

The book's subtitle "Unlocking the Secret World of Teen Boys" is a little misleading. The book is more like somebody pointing out that there is a lock to this world and handing you a ring jammed with keys. What Your Son Isn't Telling You is a good starting point in exploring the world of teen guys, but not much else.

Although I’ve had some fairly recent forays into the world of today’s teenaged boy – through my work as a one to one student aide in public school classrooms and by close association with a 16 year-old grandson who talks a LOT – this book surprised me. There’s a whole lot of inside information here! Indeed, the pressure cooker that my sons dealt with (and they’re in their early 30’s now) has been kicked up a few notches due to things that didn’t exist a few years ago; cyber-bullying, sexting, and proliferation of parent-free social networking sites. It was bad enough back then to convince me I had to home-school my kiddos, how much worse for any loving, concerned parent now?! (Terrible urge to include an OMG here.)

I thought I was doing a pretty good job grandparenting my Bubba-Boy, but this book convicted me in several areas. First, the fragility and susceptibility of the masculine teen ego, especially to sarcasm and teasing, means I shouldn’t be calling Mike, “my Bubba-Boy” ever again. Secondly, he needs a man-cave into which he can retreat whenever he wants regardless of my scheduled plans – I frequently haul that poor boy all over the place to orthodontic appointments, track meets, Great Grandparent lawn-mowings, Youth Group activities… Even if he wants to go to these places and do these things, he needs more down time than he normally gets during the school year.

The co-author, Susie Shellenberger, earned my respect with her work for Focus on the Family. Although Focus doesn’t appear to have published this book itself (I’m not sure what their current in-house publisher status is), I believe What Your Teenage Son… is a solid resource with a distinctly Christian view. I unequivocally recommend this for everyone who cares about teens. ( )
