Overview Guiding parents who are confused by today's adolescent culture, the Clarks examine how drastically things have changed since the days of the baby boomer and provide practical, biblical paradigms for parenting in the postmodern era.
Publishers Description Parents worry they don't have the understanding or training to be able to care for their kids in a world that is increasingly superficial, politicized, and performance driven. "Disconnected" makes the concepts and strategies described in the bestselling "Hurt: Inside the World of Today's Teenagers" accessible to parents. After the overwhelming response to "Hurt," authors Chap and Dee Clark here equip parents with an up-to-date, realistic parenting book that doesn't ignore the harsh realities of adolescent life. It builds a foundation for parents by describing exactly how things have changed, takes them through the various developmental stages their children go through, and gives them workable paradigms for parenting.

Guiding parents who are confused by today's adolescent culture, the Clarks examine how drastically things have changed since the days of the baby boomer---and provide practical, biblical paradigms for parenting in the postmodern era. 208 pages, softcover from Baker.

One of the BEST, most practical books on parenting teens! Jul 18, 2009
I wish I had been given this book 4 years ago, when my oldest daughter was entering the teenage years! Chap Clark knows teens & their parents. All of his books are excellent, yet I would most highly recommend this one for parents of teens who want to know how to connect with their son or daughter in this most challenging period of growing up. Much more than just tips and techniques, this book has helped me and many of my friends understand more about where my teenage daughter (I have 3!) is coming from, & how to enter her world and love her well exactly where she is. Thank you, Chap Clark!!
