Reviews - What do customers think about Teenagers Are People Too?
Avoid It Jul 15, 2006
The book gets off to a good start in the preface pointing out through implication that teens are NOT children, Very refreshing, but then it starts getting bad. Despite what the first reviewer said, this book has a lot of page filler and things in it which I can't imagine are an issue with so many teens that a book like this needed to be published. The major problems with it are that it preaches against drug use, and uses biased sources. For example she cites a statistic which claims that parents who talk to their teens regularly about drugs have "fewer negative incidents with their teen." But what the bunghole qualifies as "negative incidents" lol? Coming home with red eyes, coming home relaxed rather than screaming? Many teens know, not all drugs are bad and many can actually help you. A reason that there may be few negative incidents like fighting (assuming it's true), is because the teens that get badgered AVOID their parents and use the drugs elsewhere and when their parents are asleep. Also, the length of the study may have been short, and so only seeing the temporary effect of being pestered by your parents on drugs. On top of that, there are actually studies which show that drug programs cause teens to take drugs whereas they may not have if they hadn't been misinformed about them by the anti-drug propaganda pushers. That evidence will be in my upcoming book if I can get my computer working anytime soon.
The title is also poor, it's not that most adults dont think teens are people, it's one of either of two things. One is that they are envious about their youthfulness and bad attitude towards adults (which ironically is perpetuated by adult propaganda about it being wrong for teens and adults to have relationships or even talk to eachother casually, because teens are supposedly not adults and "stupid"). Joyce however as I pointed out, righty said that they are not children. The other is that they don't think they are very wise or intelligent. But the Bible tells young people not to let older people look down on them.
So then, why did the first teen feel so helped out? Because there is helpful advice and good consolation in this book, so of course if someone someone is bound to be helped by those parts. But, also, if whoever reading this book has certain wrong preconceptions, such as that drugs are bad or was in an exceptional circumstance in which they were in a church in which all the adults thought teens were stupid animals, etc., or were in a situation where their parents were always abusive to them, then yes, they would think this book is helpful, and their wrong ideas would be confirmed, giving them assurance that everything was okay.
But there are much better books on the topics of child abuse and bad family relationships with biblical advice then this one.
Teenagers beware...youre in for the truth Jan 1, 2004
If youre a teenager (like me) then this is the book for you. Many young people today feel so lost and are surounded with peer pressure and influences. This book helps us kids the godly way. This is a must if you are a teenager and seek a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It covers a bunch of subjects and topics that teenagers face (including relationships, peer pressure, suicide and gossip) I first read this book at age 16 and i can honestly say it changed my perspective of myself and others. Through it, I learned how to appreciate and love both myself and God. Its a must for anyone who wants a more abundant life.
