What if I told you that not all teens rebel?
I’m proof that they don’t.
And I’m not alone.
Introducing Why I Didn’t Rebel
Hi, I’m Rebecca Gregoire Lindenbach, and I didn’t rebel.
And I believe your kids don’t have to rebel, either.
Last summer I spent 5 months interviewing 25 young adults and delving into social science research to figure out just what it was that made some kids rebel and others stay on the straight and narrow. I found 8 different themes to differentiated these families–and they weren’t what I was expecting at all. I firmly believe that families shouldn’t have to face the teenage years with dread. And I wrote this book to offer hope and encouragement to you that your child that you love so much doesn’t need to go through the pain of teenage rebellion.
Enter Why I Didn’t Rebel!
And what if there was a better way?
I think there is.
Why I Didn’t Rebel is a must-read for every Christian parent!Erin Odom
- It’s about authenticity and relationship, not rules.
- It’s about knowing believing kids have the Holy Spirit, too, not suspecting them of wanting them to rebel.
- It’s about acting like a team, not acting like a club (and believe me–the distinction matters!)
I wrote Why I Didn’t Rebel to give your family the encouragement and hope you need to raise kids who won’t rebel.
Here’s how it helps:
You hear from the perspective of millennials
Have you ever wondered what is actually making a difference with your kids? I interviewed 25 young adults who want to tell you just that. Through intensely personal and honest discussions, you’ll get to see from the kids’ perspective what parents can do that makes all the difference.
Learn how to truly talk to your kids
With the hundreds of books and resources out there about communicating with teens, Why I Didn’t Rebel breaks the mold by daring to step outside of the typical parenting advice and get to the heart of the matter. With practical steps for parents to take, you’ll have a road map to talking to your kids the way they want to be talked to!
Challenge common parenting practices
What if some of the most widely-preached parenting practices don’t actually work? Why I Didn’t Rebel isn’t afraid to tackle hard-hitting topics and start an open and honest discussion about what is truly best for kids.
Is it too much to expect kids not to rebel?
I say it’s not. Parents and teens have been fed a lie for years now that the teenage years inevitably lead to rebellion. But through interviews, research, and personal experience, that’s not what I found. Yes, some teens will go off the rails. And no, there’s never any guarantee. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t any hope, or that there isn’t anything that you can do! So I wanted to figure out what works, and what doesn’t. And I talked to 25 young people and delved into psychological research to figure out just what that was. The answer? Teenage rebellion is not inevitable. And parents can help their kids follow God.
