Reviews - What do customers think about The Disconnected Generation?

!Must read for all DADs....  Jan 25, 2007
If anyone is concerned about their youth or pre-youth.. or just need some good advise on your 15yr-old... this is a must read...

When you start not to understand your child... and he/she seemingly have a different culture all of a sudden... you need help.... how do you build a close relationship? How can you understand their world...

I think this book help me for sure....
A Dangerous Book, If Such a Thing is Possible  Jul 4, 2002
Let me make something clear from the outset. I am a postmodernist. Deal. For those of you that are still reading, let me explain why this book is dangerous. First, McDowell's goal is one that I can wholeheartedly agree with. Students shooting each other is a situation that is unacceptable. Something needs to be done. This, unfortunately, is very much NOT it. The reason is very obvious, once you set aside your bias and consider what the author is trying to do. He is attempting to show you how to lead (i.e., coerce) your child/children back into a faith in God.

This very attempt to coerce your children back to God is wrong. No one should be forced to believe in Christianity or anything else, or we may as well reinstate the Crusades and the Inquisition. It will give you a good laugh if you take it the way that I can only assume that it is meant: as a joke. If you do what McDowell suggests, you will be forcing them to believe what you do and you will be sending them down a certain path to self-destruction. If you want your children to relate to you and to be healthy, teach them critical thinking skills and attempt to understand their lives and their decisions. They are their own human being and they CAN indeed make their own decisions.

It's a fun joke and I read it every once in a while to give me a fun laugh. Taking it seriously is a mistake. You do a good job, Josh. Keep the laughs coming!

For Parents of Teens  Feb 8, 2001
Today's teens live in a different world from their parents, more so than ever before. It's hard to teach your teens how to grow up spiritually, especially when you may not have had good guidance from your own parents. This book is a great resource for learning how to connect to your teen. Learn how to make connections with your teen that will give them their needed sense of authenticity, importance, security, significance, lovability, and responsibility. My husband and I are already making great steps towards beginning to better relate to our teenage daughter.
Outstanding and Insightful!  Sep 4, 2000
We read the book with great relief. We were sure our teenagers were the only ones behaving and speaking a language we did not understand. After reading the book and trying some of the techniques suggested, we can only describe it as the Rosetta Stone of teen language. It was great!
