Community Reviews. Showing Rating details. Sort order. Dec 17, Becky rated it it was amazing. The author's analysis of our current culture and its effects on kids and parents made a lot of sense to me. His suggestions were practical. I have renewed enthusiasm about my role as a parent in helping my kids to grow into responsible adults who want to follow Jesus.
Aug 10, Rick rated it really liked it. Although written from an evangelical Christian perspective this book offers an excellent analysis of the current condition of kids in America that the non-believer can use. Mar 06, Carla rated it it was amazing.
Not just a parenting book, it develops an entire philosophy on parenting as a whole, and is based on the philosophy that kids need a distinct Rite of Passage in their early teens to both look forward to from toddler years on, and to move forward from in order to be well equipped for adulthood. Our culture is very unique in that there is no distinct turning point when kids become adults - from 13 when they reach "teenage" years, to 18 when they can vote I LOVED this book and read it in a weekend.
Our culture is very unique in that there is no distinct turning point when kids become adults - from 13 when they reach "teenage" years, to 18 when they can vote, to 21 when they can drink, to 25 when they can rent a car As a result, adults end up inadvertently crippling them by not having distinct expectations. Kids also live through several years in a period of confusion, trying different things to attain "grown up status" - and not having a healthy perspective on what godly adulthood looks like.
I would absolutely recommend this book to ANY parent - I think it's really an incredible synopsis of how our culture has done our kids' a disservice in the last decades, and it strongly equips parents to change this phenomenon within their own families with a very Biblical foundation.

These children grow into teens and young adults who do not make choices based on the end result or impact on others. They assume their behavior will be overlooked or even worse, that they will be rescued from their bad choices. Failure was not coupled with unconditional love and breaking the rules was not balanced with teachable moments. Grandparents can play an important role in helping their grandchildren understand why there are rules and what might happen if rules are not followed.
Often by using childhood stories and examples of past consequences followed by positive feedback, grandparents can work alongside parents to raise responsible children. Not all grandparents have sound wisdom, but if they do, they can leave Grace Deposits in the lives of their grandchildren that will encourage them to stay on the right track.
