Dave & Judi Coats were stunned when their teenage daughter said to them, â€śYou are not going to tell me what to do!â€ť Struggles with their teens drove them to their knees in prayer and to the Word of God for answers about teenage rebellion. Here they share the truths they discovered, the practical advice that helped, and the hope they found in the power of the gospel and Godâ€™s grace to change.
