My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Paul Tripp is the brother of Tedd Tripp (author of Shepherding a Child’s Heart), and so it’s not surprise that his approach is very similar. Age of Opportunity takes the principle of shepherding the heart and applies it to raising teenagers. Simply using punishments and rewards to modify behavior falls infinitely short of the mark of good parenting. This book gives great insight on how to raise godly, free moral agents whose faith will be strong by the time they move out of the house. I can’t recommend this book strongly enough for parents of teens or children who are approaching their teen years.
