Raising Successful Teens: How to Help Your Child Honor God and Live Wisely by Jeffrey Dean Book Review




In Raising Successful Teens, Jeffrey Dean has written an updated edition of the book, The Fight of Your Life. He explored different topics that teenagers are facing in today’s times including acceptance, addictions, drugs, sex, homosexuality, pornography, dating, cell phone usage, social media, suicide, and much more. He began the book by looking at the story of Moses and how he was forced to be abandoned by his mother. Pharaoh ordered male Hebrew babies to be killed and his mother’s put Moses in the river in order to save his life. As we know, he was found by Pharaoh’s daughter and raised as an Egyptian. Moses was raised with a purpose to save God’s people. Jeffrey shared how parents are chosen by God to fulfill a purpose and how their teenagers are chosen for a purpose. He explained that God could have chosen anyone to be their parent but He chose them to be their parent. As parents, we want our kids to follow their God given dreams and to fulfill their purpose in life. He also revealed the real truth of how satan doesn’t like our teens and how he uses social media and peer pressure to try and lure them into following the traps of society. 




I would recommend this amazing book to all parents and parents to be. I immensely like how he covered all of the topics with an updated look about how social media is bringing even new challenges to our teenagers. Most of our teenagers love the attention they get from their friends and strangers with their posts, likes, and snaps. It’s affecting both girls and boys, they are struggling with facing sexting pressure and pornography . Most of it comes down to how our teenagers see themselves and their desire to be accepted. Boys are desperately trying to work out and be toned to get the likes from the girls. Jeffrey also shared how he was praying for a group of high schoolers and the boys shared how much they have an obsession with working out and being fit. Girls are posting and sexting in order to get the attention from the boys. He also shared some of the apps the teenagers are using and how editing photos is becoming the norm. I liked how he included scriptures throughout the book to assist parents in having important discussions with their teenagers. I believe most readers will be able to learn how to raise their teenagers in a worldly environment that is ever changing. This book will help you in setting a Godly foundation to influence your teenagers in the years to come.
