Publisher's Description

Will my teens' faith be strong enough to withstand the tests of college?
Will they focus on their studies or squander their free time?
Will they form healthy friendships or join the wrong crowd?

Dr. Chediak has watched too many college students flounder over these and other issues. Sadly, 45 percent of those who start off at a four-year college will not complete their degree.

At a time when college has never been more expensive, too many of our children are failing.
What makes the difference? Character, a strong faith, and a willingness to delay gratification.
And where are those traits learned? Ideally, at home. Prepare your teens to thrive at college and beyond.

Includes a Foreword by Tedd Tripp
