Designed for parents, youth workers, and teachers, this book explores the complex interplay between the cultural forces that are molding and shaping the values, attitudes, and behaviors of youth. Section 1 discusses the characteristics of adolescents, how the Bible can help parents raising their children, and societal trends impacting adolescents. Section 2 describes how the media and music impact teens. Chapters explain how music molds adolescents, what the media is teaching teens, and how parents can lead their children through the maze of music and the media. The types of pressures adolescents face are addressed in Section 3, with chapters on peer pressure, sexual pressure, and materialism. The following section focuses on understanding substance abuse and teenage depression, and strategies parents can use to counter alcohol and drug use. The final section discusses how parents can encourage their teens to turn to Christ. Biblical references support the text. 709 references.
