I'm reading a new book called "hurt: inside the world of today's teenagers" by Chap Clark. I'm reading it because I'm 'hurt: inside the world of today's teen's parent'. (A mild attempt at humor) Yesterday, I had a setback which made me examine all of my parenting practices and made me reach for this book tonight at my church's bookstore. So far, it's explaining the phenomenon of why today's teen is different, how today's teen has been abandoned by the self-focused, self-surviving adult and placed into their own world of rules and norms. Talks about their attempt at survival. So far so good. So far, nothing new, though. Hoping for the 'what to do now' chapters to be specific.
