We’ve been talking with author Shannon Perry about her new book which is a must have if you have teenagers and more specifically, teen girls. I think you should get two copies, and go through it together to address a lot of the tough stuff that your teen is going through. I read this book and learned a lot myself and that is why I’m recommending it to you.
In “Stand: Staying Balanced with Answers for Real Teen Life” author, speaker and TV show host, Shannon Perry speaks the raw but real truth to teen/tween girls, offering practical and spiritual advice to help them make the best decisions for their lives. Though Shannon holds a master’s degree in education and counseling and is a certified instructor in parenting and crisis counseling, she sought the input of ten teen girls who she met with regularly for several months in her home. The girls shared their real life issues, offering Shannon a personal glimpse into the topics that affect teenagers today. Stand addresses the most pertinent questions that concern young women, offering real-life advice on topics such as friendships, dating, self-esteem and body image, bullying, cutting, gender identity, sex, technology, and parental communication. Using wit, wisdom, and scriptural references. Shannon speaks in a language teen and tween girls understand. For more information, visit ShannonPerry.com.
