The teenage years are a unique life stage—one that fills even the calmest parents with confusion and dread as they begin to feel like helpless bystanders to the rapidly changing lives of their teens.

If you're struggling as a parent, you're not alone. Raising children is difficult work, and it gets more difficult as they reach adolescence. But you don't need to feel alone or paralyzed by these feelings.

With deep encouragement and practical advice born from long study and first-hand experience, Walt Mueller has written a guide for parents with children who are going through the tumultuous years of adolescence.

The Space Between will walk you through how your teen is developing physically, socially, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually as you learn:

  • How you can make the adolescent period smoother for your teen.
  • How you can begin to break through the walls of confusion, fear, frustration, and misunderstanding.
  • How you can be a positive and proactive bridgebuilder into the life and world of your teenager.

Finally, you'll discover how you can approach the task of parenting teenagers as an opportunity to depend on God while teaching your impressionable teen to do the same.
