I remember one of the first times our younger daughter Amber vented her anger at me for something I did. In reality, it was something I didn't do that made her mad. She had asked me to help her with a paper she was writing for a middle school class. The paper required a lot of research, and Amber didn't know how to go about doing the research."There's nothing to it," I assured her flippantly. Then instead of showing her what she needed to do, I simply told her to get started, explaining that she would figure out how to do the research as she went along.She let out an exasperated sigh. "But Dad, I don't know how to--""Amber, just get started," I insisted with authority, "and you'll figure it out." Then I left the room.(from the introduction)When the author understood his mistake, he was able to go and talk with his daughter. As she vented, he began to understand what a capacity parents have to make their kids angry, and how he could change his approach to communicating with his children to improve their relationship. In the years since Roger Cross has been studying the things parents do that make kids angry, such as:playing favoriteshaving loose or confusing boundariesexpecting kids to fill adult roles and moreDrawing on his ministry of Youth for Christ along with a survey of one hundred students of varied ages and backgrounds, Roger Cross has created a practical, helpful book for parents who want to understand why their kids are so angry and what they need to do to change.

The Danger of Raising Nice Kids

Nice is not enough. We are raising a generation of "nice" kids. Nice kids are well behaved and look good on the outside, but they often lack courageous character inside. Offering practical wisdom gleaned from his experience as a parent and family coach, Tim Smith helps you move your kids from simply polite to truly compassionate. He targets nine key qualities children need but often lack and shows you how to build them into your children by modeling core values and biblical practices. Your kids can be--and indeed, are meant to be--kingdom builders who help bring God's light and life to others through their decisions and influence. "Being nice won't help them stand apart," Tim says. "We need to strategically train our children to engage and challenge the popular views of our culture." Here is a clear, down-to-earth resource that will help you do just that. But be prepared for change--in you, in your kids and in the world.

Many people probably think of counseling as a sort of psychiatrist-couch situation in which the counselor elicits from the counselee the deep secrets of the subconscious and then draws upon his own great knowledge of the human mind and psyche to give advice. But this is not so, Dr. Roger L. Dudley asures us. Most counseling of young people has to do with just plain listening and helping the teen-ager arrive at his own solutions to his problems. In doing this it is, of course, necessary to have certain insights into human nature. At least as important is to have a sensitivity and love for young people - to be someone in whom the teen-ager can have confidence. In this book Dr. Dudley lists some of the common problems teen-agers have, and gives interesting case histories of some that he had to deal with. Anyone who is called upon to work with youth but who is aware of his counseling inadequacies will value the practical help found in these pages. - Preface, Me - A Counselor? Can It be?, This Thing Called Counseling, We Start Here, And Go This Way, The Master Counselor, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, When First We Met, When Life Touches Life, Feeling With, How to Listen, Relationship and Respect, To Think a New Way, Opening the Inner Eyes, Brand-New Behaviors, Decisions, Decisions, Decisions, How Much Is a Person Worth?, The Case of the Cantankerous Counselee, Growing a Counselor, Bibliography
