Kampakis (Liked: Whose Approval Are You Living For?) starts by sharing her own struggles with her teenage daughter. The world tells our kids what’s wrong with them, but as moms it’s our job is to tell them what’s right, says Kampakis. She gives ideas here for how to “speak life” into your children. Social media, bullying, secrecy, sleep deprivation, hook-up culture, and binge drinking are issues that have increased hand in hand with depression in teenagers. To mold teen brains in a positive direction, the author suggests making the relationship a priority by spending one-on-one time and giving affection, seeing the good in your child even when the world doesn’t, and being their emotional coach.
VERDICT Kampakis’s faith-based work includes many practical suggestions that will resonate with most parents of teens.
