Reviews - What do customers think about Stupid Parents: Why They Just Don't Understand and How You Can Help?
Not-so-stupid Feb 12, 2007
Be advised that this book is written for students and speaks to real life for them. Parents might have their feelings hurt, but most will recognize the author's good connection with her intended readers. I also used it with my youth group over a series of weeks and they get it. I would compare this work to a modern, teen focused "Win Friends and Influence People." The new companion book for parents (Not So Stupid Parents) ought to be a great addition for getting both "sides" on the same, healthy, communicative page.
great study Feb 8, 2007
I used this book as an eight week study for our youth. They loved it. It was enlightening, and also very practical. DiMarco has a good idea of what today's teenagers desperately need, authentic, available adults, and she has tapped into how young people can better understand them. I appreciate her discussions about parents that are really "stupid." She doesn't assume that every young person has two responsible, caring parents at home. She realizes that a good number of them have maybe one parent, and that one is a wreck. I'm glad that she had something for those young people as well.
Still Stupid Jan 5, 2007
My son said I was stupid for buying them this book. It is fun reading and has interesting ideas, but he says they are not ideas I want them to agree with.
Cute, funny , helpful Sep 13, 2006
Great book for teens and parents alike. Can't wait for the sequel book Not-So-Stupid Parents coming out in 2007.
