Item description for Hurt: Inside the World of Today's Teenagers (Youth, Family, and Culture) by Chap Clark...
Overview From body cutting to Columbine, the plight of today's adolescents is often front-page news. How can the church begin to understand the root causes of this turmoil? What can be done?
In Hurt, Chap Clark writes that today's adolescents operate within an environment in which adults have largely abdicated their responsibility to mold and shape teenagers' everyday lives. As a result, the behaviors once associated with the adolescent fringe--sexual promiscuity, for example--have become the norm in contemporary youth culture.
Publishers Description What do teenagers really think about adults? If you think you know the answer, you may be in for a surprise. According to Chap Clark, today's adolescents have largely been abandoned by adults and left to fend for themselves in an uncertain world. As a result, teens have created their own world to serve as a shield against uncaring adults. Based on six months of participant-observer research at a California public school, this book offers a somewhat troubling but insightful snapshot of adolescent life. It will surprise and enlighten parents, youth workers, counselors, pastors, and all who want to better understand the hearts and minds of America's adolescents.
