The 10 Myths of Teen Dating: Truths your daughter needs to know to date smart, avoid disaster, and protect her future

by Daniel Anderson MEd with his daughter Jacquelyn Anderson MEd

Teen Dating. Something that none of us parents are sure we are ready to deal with, right? So, in theory, this should be a great book giving us lots of wisdom and insight.


I can not even tell you how angry I was when I read this book. This book is an exact picture of what Christianity has turned into and it disgusts me to my core.

Let me clarify. The Bible IS enough. There is not even one problem you will encounter in life that the God has not shown us how to deal with. Even as I read through the chapters and their “scientific research”, I find myself saying that God’s Word actually gives us insight on every one of these “myths”.


In fact, God is very clear that when we ask Him for wisdom, He reveals it to us.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” James 1:5

The very idea that God’s Word is not all we need is absolutely horrible. It’s very disturbing to me that therapists and doctors are believing this lie AND THEN writing about it and telling their patients these lies. No wonder America is in the state it is in.

Yes, I am a parent of teenagers and I have relied wholly on God to guide me in my parenting; in all areas! Not just in dating. A book like this is something that should not be sold in a Christian market and should DEFINITELY not even talk about God if these authors don’t want it to be a “Christian Book”.

  1. I appreciate the concise review and am in agreement with your reasons. I am thankful that there are some psychologists that are true followers of Christ who do seek answers to problems through his word – Dr. J. Wile and Dr. Diane Langberg are two such examples. This makes me even more appreciative of their work.
    There was no “ideal” world at any time when Scripture was given, and that is precisely why it was given.
