Understanding Youth Concerns Jun 9, 2003
Olsen appears to have a "handle" on what makes youth tick today. Although he writes from the perspective of Christian ministry,the content is helpful to teachers counselors and parents alike. He pinpoints the most important aspects of why youth are "at risk". Not the usual dialogue about good kids gone bad, but rather that we ( all society) have a stake in preventing risky behavior in our young people. He writes from experience and simply states his contentions. Higly recommended
