Coming Soon – Time for the Talk

Posted on September 21, 2011 · Posted in Parenting, Shaping Influences, Teenagers

Time for the Talk is a book about THE conversation; the one where Dad tells his son about how life works. This book is different from other “facts of life” books. This book actually shows fathers how to have this talk and what kinds of things should be addressed.  We are excited to offer this book for publication! The approximate publication date is October 20th. Check back for more details. Here is a brief description of the book:

Time for The Talk will help fathers walk their sons through one of the most important conversations of their lives. The Talk is much broader than just a talk about sexuality; it’s a conversation about manhood, about right decisions, about Christ. With Time for The Talk you will give your son what he needs to steer through the moral and spiritual confusion of this world and make wise, godly, character-forming decisions. You will be equipping him to enter true manhood – a passage that many young men today simply never make. This book provides a complete framework for discussing the key areas of manhood that every boy should learn from his father. Through the talk you will open a channel of communication based on truth and love that will endure for life. Your son will never have to say, “I just didn’t know,” or “I didn’t have anyone to turn to for advice.”
