A Tribe Apart: A Journey into the Heart of American Adolescence , Hersch, Patricia
2 A Tribe Apart: A Journey into the Heart of American Adolescence  Hersch, Patricia
0449907678 / 9780449907672 Good.  
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1998 Fawcett Columbine. Noticeable average edgewear to jacket. Very clean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. 391 pages; Index. Language: English. 'On any given day across America, an editor somewhere is offering a rookie reporter this basic advice: Don't tell me, show me. Hersch, a former contributing editor to Psychology Today, illustrates the breathtaking impact this kind of reporting can have through her remarkable fly-on-the-wall chronicle of teenage life today. A mother of three adolescents, Hersch spent three years following eight teens of middle- and high-school age in her Virginia suburb. She went to their schools, took them out to eat, and above all listened as they gradually trusted her enough to share their worries, their fears, their stories. The result is an astonishingly candid, poignant, and at times disturbing portrait of life for today's average teens. Interspersed with the tales are a few statistics from various reports. For the most part, however, Hersch lets the teens make her point--that America has become a society in which far too many adults have reneged on their responsibilities to children. What kids need from adults is not just rides, pizza, chaperones, and discipline, Hersch writes. They need the telling of stories, the close ongoing contact so that they can learn and be accepted. If nobody is there to talk to, it is difficult to get the lessons of your own life so that you are adequately prepared to do the next thing. As a sad consequence, far too many teens have becomeas the title suggests--a tribe apart at the precise moment they most need adult leadership to help them make sense of the chaos they inhabit as they struggle to define themselves and the world they live in. A poignant look into a critical period in a young life, and a powerful exhortation to adults to start paying attention.'--Kirkus Reviews, 1998.

Endangered: Your Child in a Hostile World , Arnold, Johann Christoph
3 Endangered: Your Child in a Hostile World  Arnold, Johann Christoph
0874869978 / 9780874869972 Very Good.  
Paperback. Softcover. Very clean; unmarked; uncreased. Only light wear. Language: English. 'Arnold, senior elder of the Christian communalist Bruderhof, usually writes on theological matters, such as, in the superb Seventy Times Seven (1997), forgiveness. He is apologetic about adding to the voluminous parenting literature. But from counseling children and parents, he knows the threats to children that contemporary society poses; as a father of eight, he understands childrearing; and as a graceful writer, he is most welcome to the field. Parenting is at a crossroads, for as the gap between rich and poor has grown, so has that between adults and children. Violence by and against children increases, the two-income family continues to estrange parents from children, and a hedonistic culture diverts attention from and often harms children. Arnold challenges parents to put children first. He emphasizes many familiar themes that he movingly illustrates with real-life stories and the less familiar one of reverencing the child as, in the words of a Hasidic saying he quotes, the image of the Holy One. Instead of mere advice, Arnold offers a noble philosophy of parenting.'--Ray Olson, Booklist.

Hardcover. 1st edition HARDCOVER with dustjacket 1995 Basic Books. Has REMAINDER MARK at bottom; otherwise superclean; never read; gift-giving condition. 277pp, Index, Notes, References. Language: English. From publisher: 'Why do so many smart, career-oriented, even ardently feminist women end up with nearly sole responsibility for running their households and raising their children? Why does it happen even in couples who had promised to share that work equally? Applying sophisticated ideas from economic and game theory negotiation to family life, an empowering book traces decisions men and women make--often unwittingly--that lead to an unfair division of labor at home and outlines a strategy for real change.'

From the publisher: 'With the growing number of job losses in the work force today, new issues are emerging for American families. Job loss is often a major source of anxiety, stress, and worry for children, and parents often keep their own fears of the future from their children out of shame or embarassment.
