Why Christian Kids Rebel: Trading Heartache for Hope by Dr Tim Kimmel Very Good Condition, Clean, Unmarked, foxed, comes with plastic book cover. Description - Dr. Tim Kimmel helps Christian parents avoid the potential problems their well-meaning parenting styles could create. This book offers a new way to look at the "ideal" Christian home and shows why "cocoon-style" Christian homes don't always work. Many parents have "done it all" when it comes to the checklist of good Christian parenting, only to see their son or daughter step away from their belief system and embrace other lifestyle choices. Dr. Kimmel helps to increase the chances that your children will develop a vibrant faith early in life and stick with it on into adulthood. It will also provide help and hope for those already dealing with a rebellious teen and teach them how to lead the child back into a walk of faith.

It isn't usually the child that needs to change, but the parent. Grace is ALWAYS needed. 2) Five Stars - By Amazon Customer A must read for every Christian parent! Thought-provoking and life changing. 3) Thank you Dr. Kimmel! - By Charles Sawyer Thank you Tim Kimmel for your courage and for loving these kids! As a fellow Christian counselor I share your love and dedication. This book tells the story that all Christian parents need to hear: parent from the perspective of balancing truth and grace and as Dr. Henry Cloud would add...give it time (patience); always leading with grace and avoiding the temptation of fear, "Do not be afraid". Equally important is Dr. Kimmel's emphasis on the strong need for parents to take a long look at themselves and watch for their reflection in the eyes and hearts of your children. Growth is intended to be reciprocal, opportunities are plentiful for both you and your adolescent to draw closer to God and to each other.
