In this warm and reassuring guide, Rabbi Ben Kamin (the father of two teens himself) provides parents with careful, evenhanded, and practical information on talking with teenagers. This is not a book filled with psychology and theory; rather, it is a book of common sense and values - a starting point for honest and thoughtful discussion between parent and child. Each chapter answers a question a teen might ask (in fact, these are real questions asked by young people in Kamin's community). Topics covered include sex, AIDS, drinking, racism, hatred, suicide, religion, money, homosexuality, abuse, celebrity worship, success, and family discord.Throughout, Rabbi Kamin shows you, the parent, how to help your children form the values that will guide their emerging lives. He asks you to consider your own value system, and how your actions affect your children.
