Discussion of suitability for use in home school sex ed
I read this book because I was looking for material to use in conjunction with high school sex education material in a home school situation, so this review will focus on the benefits it has for discussion between parents and teens who are not yet or just beginning to be interested in dating.
A Must Read
This book was recommended to me by a woman in my bible study following a breakup with a guy I believed to be a strong Christian and who had my heart in his hands for good reason. I found out the hard way, he was neither. This book has been a eye opener and confirmation all at the same time!
I loved this book! It was very enlightening and needed right now in my life. I just got out of a relationship where it was clear to me that i wasn’t setting proper boundaries, as I seemed to have lost complete control of most of the decision making. This book has great insights and is a reliable standard for what a healthy relationship is. It definitely has a Christian aspect to it, but if that bothers you, it’s easy to look past and still get solid council. As a Christian, however, I really enjoyed that element!
A truly wonderful guide book!!
This is the 3rd book by these authors I have read. Every single book has been helpful and inspiring on my journey to learn how to have a healthy loving relationship, with myself, my child, and a partner. The guidance presented is what I have innately always wanted to emulate in my life but was never taught, nor have I seen demonstrated. My soul has always wanted to break the pattern of dysfunction that I witnessed and learned in my family. These books are truly a road map to making that become a reality! Now I must humble myself, trust, experience my vulnerability of expressing my feelings to my partner, and implement boundaries needed for the loving, healthy, communicative relationship I have always wanted! I am so grateful for the body of work these authors have shared with me! 🙏😊💗
Dating at 15 or 85, read this!
After a 31 year marriage, teaching couples in our church about dating and how to treat a woman (or a man), I learned more information from this book than I thought. If you are 15 or 85, you need to make this book a part of your library for your teen or yourself. I learned not to fear to set boundaries in my dating now than I did before. Looking back at how I dated in high school to now, 180′ difference.
THE BEST DATING BOOK EVER!
This is one of the best books I have ever read and the best book on dating that I have ever come across. I think it should be mandatory reading and perhaps a study course for every young person before they enter the dating world so that they do not end up in the crazy, messed up, and abusive relationships so many people do, not to mention preventing countless divorces between people who walked into their relationships either blindly or in denial of all of the danger signs that their “dream partner” is just a nightmare in disguise. I can’t praise this book enough and refer to it often! This team of authors have many terrific books- their original Boundaries book is another necessity as is Safe People. Read it, you will not regret it.
Great way to keep yourself in check and reiterate to …
Only read half of it, that’s because it repeats similar things from ‘How To Get A Date Worth Keeping: Be Dating In Six Months Or Your Money Back’. However, it has quite clear lessons, patterns, and character flaws that we can learn of/from without being emotionally wrecked by them first. Great way to keep yourself in check and reiterate to yourself what you need to take ownership of.
Helping our son navigate dating
We got this for my husband to go through with our 17 year old son. They both are finding it very good & a great way to start meaningful conversations. Earlier we went through Preparing Your Son for Every Man’s Battle (Arterburn & Stoker) which was a really valuable way to prepare for the dating experiences our son is now having. I highly recommend both books.
Are you tierd of wasting time dating the wrong people? GET THIS BOOK
When we go into dating we don’t think to set boundaries because we like the person and we forget that we have to set boundaries. When we date people we often let them slide on a lot of things. But when we date intentionally we must not forget that we have to set boundaries for people or they will walk all over us. Many marriages that started off with dating never had boundaries. So when we go into marriage we are upset because the other person is walking all over us. This book helped me looked at dating in a very different way. I’m able to see some of the unsolved issues of the person I’m dating. I can ask the appropriate questions that need to be asked and get clarity on what their intentions are. I have started to read the boundaries series and even went further and took a boundaries class at a local church. I love how he include biblical aspects throughout the book to help confirm what the author is saying. If your dating please get this book it will save you hurt, and help in not wasting time with someone who your not going long term with. All of us should date with the intentions to marry. Please read this book. You’ll be doing yourself a big favor!!!!
Boundaries are Biblical and absolutely necessary to live your life!
I love this book. Although a number of other reviewers mentioned the book just points out common sense, common sense isn’t really common. If it were, books like this wouldn’t be necessary (and clearly, they are). I took away from it a good understanding of my behaviors that don’t serve me well, why they don’t serve me well, and exactly how and why I should change my behavior. The book gives a clear understanding of how boundaries are Biblical, and why it’s important to have boundaries and respect other’s boundaries as well. I also appreciate the authors’ understanding that Christian adults don’t have to completely quit dating and engage in “courting” to live as Christians.
