Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Mueller, director of HeadFirst Ministries and founder of the Center for Parent/ Youth Understanding, claims that contemporary culture is bearing down on our children like a rabid Rottweiler. This lengthy guidebook is an attempt to shorten the leash. While acknowledging that our present social milieu does not always exert a negative influence, Mueller blames parents' misunderstanding, blindness, and apathy toward the rapidly changing culture for widening the culture/generation gap. He argues that it is up to parents to reverse this trend by encouraging communication, putting Christian values into action, and working to understand the world as adolescents view it. The book's contents include in-depth descriptions of the changes that adolescents experience, a discussion of peer pressure, and an analysis of musical genres, television, and advertising. Each chapter concludes with guidelines and suggestions for responding to various situations. Scrupulously researched and well documented, this work covers the full spectrum of the adolescent experience and offers advice in tune with the perspective of Christian and many non-Christian parents alike. Recommended for public libraries.-David R. Johnson, Louisiana State Univ. Lib., Eunice
