Abstract:

This landmark book paints a compelling--and sobering--picture of what could happen to our society if we don't change the way we relate to today's teens and young adults. Research-based and solution-biased, it moves beyond sounding an alarm to outlining practical strategies to: guide unprepared adolescents and at-risk boys to productive adulthood; correct crippling parenting styles; repair damage from (unintentional) lies we've told kids; guide them toward real success instead of superficial "self-esteem"; adopt education strategies that engage (instead of bore) an "i" generation; pull youth out of their "digital" ghetto into the real world; employ their strengths and work with their weaknesses on the job; defuse a worldwide demographic time bomb; equip Generation iY to lead us into the future. --Publisher description.
