Book Review: Fire Up your Parental Engine!

Shelia Lyon Halls 19 page book is straightforward, direct and candid in the advice she gives to parents of teenagers. Her 8 Transitional Parenting Practices, guide adults into thinking about interactions with their teens. This is a book which many Christian parents will appreciate. However, people of all faiths will also gain insight from her direct communication.

I recommend this book for parents of eight to twelve year old children. Parents can use the ideas to prepare their mindset for the teen years. In addition parents of teens can use these ideas to help them to reposition themselves. Here is a link to the book.

  1. Barbara … I appreciate your review of “Fire Up Your Parental Engine!” I’m delighted to let you know that your comments pointed up something I had not consciously put emphasis on – parents of Tween-children! You also confirmed something that I know to be true: When a Believer is guided in any undertaking, everyone in the “target audience” gets served. In the future, I’ll make a point of reaching out more directly and more often to parents of Tweens. In this way, I can more effectively bring my message full circle. Thank you for nudging me in that direction. Shalom!

  2. Sheila, I am so glad to help. Yes, tween parents are often overlooked. I think since 10-15 year old children have the most difficult time in development, their parents need real support.
