This how-to, why-to, when-to manual is no work book. Nor is it another long, boring lecture that tries to make young people act like old people. If the new millennium is going to be an improvement over the last one, the world had better start enlightening and inspiring the present generation of teenagers. What's needed is a lot less fault-finding and a lot more of what you'll find herein: words of encouragement, support and trust.From the Author:
What motivates a grown-up to write a book about growing up? No voice in the night commanded me. I have no guru to impress, no church to fill or cult to cultivate. But I did have a son approaching his teens when the book was first written. Like most fathers, I felt called on to raise a torch to help him steer clear of the pitfalls I have met along life's path, as well as previewing some of the pleasures to be enjoyed en route.
