Why Christian Kids Rebel by Dr. Tim Kimmel

Dr. Tim Kimmel helps Christian parents avoid the potential problems their well-meaning parenting styles could create.  This book offers a new way to look at the “ideal” Christian home and shows why “cocoon-style” Christian homes don’t always work.
Many parents have “done it all” when it comes to the checklist of good Christian parenting, only to see their son or daughter step away from their belief system and embrace other lifestyle choices. Dr. Kimmel helps to increase the chances that your children will develop a vibrant faith early in life and stick with it on into adulthood. It will also provide help and hope for those already dealing with a rebellious teen and teach them how to lead the child back into a walk of faith.
