|This is the book we wish our parents gave us. |
Just One More Thing: Before You Leave Home is a packed guide to help young adults enter life on their own. In the book, the Gudgels use stories, perspectives, and dialogues to discuss 30 indispensable topics to help teens survive, including: worldview, financial challenges, use of time, career moves, moral dilemmas, sex, painful experiences, and spiritual life, among others. Written from a Biblical perspective, the book is more of a guide to making good decisions than a lecture on how to live., It’s perfect for a parent and teen to go over together or to give as a thoughtful gift. This is a book they’ll reference for years to come.

As a parent of a teen leaving home, and another not far behind, I knew I had to read this book.
The book is very nicely arranged for future referencing and takes your through different steps to help your child, different ways to talk to your child and covers pretty much everything. From choices, roommates and love, spending money and debt, religion and more!
Scripture is added throughout the book and this truly is a family friendly book, I wish I had this book when I was leaving home....an excellent resource.
