6 Decisions... great conversation starter with your teen! Aug 8, 2008
I purchased this initially as a read aloud with my teens, but my 12 year old wanted to read it on her own... she has enjoyed reading it then asking me some questions concerning the issues in the book. The six topics address issues: school, friends, parents, dating and sex, addictions,self-worth, all issues that helped start some great conversations with my child. *****!!!!
Great bonding opportunity Jul 17, 2008
I read this book to my 10-year-old, and it helped me broach topics that I probably would have had a difficult time talking about and created opportunities for the two of us to bond that would have never happened otherwise. The book may broach topics that are too mature for some 10-year-olds (e.g., pornography, drugs, etc.), but I feel fortunate to have been the first to introduce these topics to my son. As we read the book, he sought me, asking specifically for me to read more of the book to him. It was clear that he was not only interested in the book, but he enjoyed the experience of us sharing the information. As a result, we were now able to talk about drugs, alcohol, sex, school, and numerous other topics because those topics are introduced in the book. One of the things that I appreciate most about the book is the fact that it not only provides recommendations about six important decisions that all teens will face, but it also provides numerous anecdotes and statistics in support of those recommendations.
AMAZING BOOK!!! Jul 12, 2008
This is my 14 yr old daughters favorite book. After starting the book and reading for 45 minutes, she looks up and says, "Mom, I'm Not Losing My Mind!" This book lets every kid know they are not alone in their feelings and fears. My 11 year old can't wait to read it. She has skimmed chapters and knows it will help her with her questions and insecurities.
BOUGHT ONE FOR EACH OF MY TEENS Jun 9, 2008
|I checked this book out of the library and was so impressed I bought one for my 14 year old daughter and 16 year old son. I wrote on the inside covers and laid the books on their beds, I have seen them both with their books and pages folded down. It really has some good advice on conducting yourself in a way that will pave a way for a better future and gain trust and respect from adults.
Probably would have helped me when I was a teen May 27, 2008
Covey packs the book with wisdom. His approach is wide in range and still has depth
- school - friends - parents - dating and sex - addiction - self worth
He throws in a crash course on the 7 habits of highly effective teens as well as a list of his families favorite movies to boot.
I found this book when I was searching for wisdom to address the issue of porn which is being made so widely available to youngsters through the net, the cell phones and even the PSPs. My son was being exposed to it at school and becoming curious.
I wanted to find another voice to add to mine to wise up my son so that he can see that as a choice to avoid and understand the reasons to resist such a powerful allure. Well, Covey addresses that issue with wisdom. Reading that (small but informative) section prompted me to read the entire book (which I stayed up all night to accomplish) I highly recommend this book as an antidote to the "anything goes" and "everybody wins" cultural messages.
