Our youth minister, an amazingly caring, dynamic and beloved individual, recently left the church to follow her dream of starting a boarding school for troubled youth.
When she left, she gave this book to every family in the group of teens she worked with at the church. So, I figured it might be an important book. Unfortunately, I found it to be pretty much useless, while admitting that I'm not the in the expected audience. I did like the first chapter, which make First, why did I read this book? I did like the first chapter, which makes a pretty strong case that today's kids are different than 20 years ago when I was parenting, and thus probably require a different parenting approach. Unfortunately, the rest of the book is a mixture of unfocused and vague recommendations, contradictory advice, and old bromides.
I think if I had just read the chapter titles I could have saved myself some time reading this book: 1. Hope in a New Age of Child Rearing 4. The author shifts back and forth between describing kids as over-sexualized, greedy and brutal, foul-mouthed and insensitive and, on the other hand, caring, sweet, and loving. You just have to get past that other stuff. By the time I finished the book, I started to doubt the original premise that kids and society have changed all that much since my kids were kids. I think the author is highly influenced by his job. He writes books, gives lectures, and sees troubled kids for brief periods of times.
I am now very suspicious of a "child expert" who has written six books. There is probably an overwhelming temptation to write another by recycling material from the first ones. In addition, their high-speed multitasking is preparing them for the demands of the future. The key question, then, is how to encourage the good while steering them away from the bad.
Taffel believes today's parents, having lived through the beginning phases of the same social changes, are uniquely qualifiedto bring out kids' best -- and he shows you how. Using a wealth of examples, he walks parents through innovative methods to get children's and teens' attention, to set limits they will respect, and to engage them in meaningful conversation to provide the guidance they need.
He also instructs on how to rebuild supportive community around us. His inspiring analysis and expert guidance will be embraced as the authoritative new approach to raising their kids that parents have been searching for. Product Details About the Author.
