“As a parent of Junior High and High School teens, Tim’s book was informative, practical, and it helped my wife and I to have a strategy for dealing with the changes our kids were going through. As a dad it helped me see some areas I needed to grow in, especially around the areas of control, and accountability. It also spilled over to my relationships in my work. Now as a parent of young adults the information is indispensable. I have a better understanding of my roleand I have less anxiety about my kid’s decisions.”
