What are some good books on parenting teens?

Book cover - Shepherding a Child's HeartGetting to the heart of a teen–instead of just getting a teen to do what you want–is not easy.

Although there are many books available on this topic, here are some I have found to be especially helpful:

  1. Shepherding a Child’s Heart by Ted Tripp
  2. Age of Opportunity by Paul Tripp
  3. Heart of Anger by Lou Priolo
  4. When People Are BIG and God Is Small by Ed Welch
  5. The Peacemker by Ken Sande
  6. Changed Into His Image by Jim Berg

These resources are Christ-centered and practical in nature, and are filled with excellent examples and illustrations.

What other Christ-centered books have been helpful to you in parenting teens?
