Bestselling Series

The wisdom in these pages are priceless! Like I said, it's geared more towards high school students and how they're better off not steady dating, but a lot of the things I learned through reading this book I can apply to my life right now as a young adult. Jul 14, Jill rated it really liked it Shelves: This was an informative read about adolescent dating and relationships. My middle schooler also enjoyed it as it explained the mistakes he sees in others and helped him understand what really is appropriate.

Feb 10, Angela rated it really liked it Recommended to Angela by: I think this book only reads well for a conservative, LDS audience. It's peppered with Mormon terms and church culture references, and although much of the research is neutral, many big hitter quotations are from church authorities -- carving this book a tight and small niche audience.

I name the conservative contingent, because even within LDS circles who understand all of the church content, I am sure some will find Chapter 12 waves the stereotype wand too Thoroughly enjoyed. I name the conservative contingent, because even within LDS circles who understand all of the church content, I am sure some will find Chapter 12 waves the stereotype wand too freely -- I know I did. I think the book is an excellent starting point for discussion in homes, and I think teenagers, parents and leaders alike would benefit from opening a dialogue with this as a catalyst.

I wish I had known about this book before my children hit the age of dating. It was a great opportunity to talk about our standards and how to keep them. Some of the examples in the book seem extreme, but the truth applies to everyone. That turned my kids off a bit, but again a great conversations starter which allowed us to encourage them to think about how they were going to handle situations before they got into them or why they might want to avoid them all together.

UNSteady Dating: Resisting the Rush to Romance by Jeanette Smith

It made it lighter and quicker to read than just listening to someone ramble about what studies show. She's got some great practical advice and clearly spells out what level of physical and emotional intimacy is appropriate for the different relationships a teen has in their life. Jul 17, Alyssandra rated it liked it. I like the message the author's trying to portray, but each chapter was pretty redundant. I didn't get a whole lot out of this book, but the writing style was fairly concise and the book had a good message. Jul 27, Vanessa rated it it was amazing.

I would love it if more teens would read this book or at least understand some of the ideas here.

My daughter agrees and hopes her friends read it too.
