Disconnected: Parenting Teens in a MySpace World

Disconnected takes parents through the stages of parenting from early childhood into adolescence. If you have ever wondered how on earth you went from having a happy, compliant child – whose picture still graces the side of the fridge – to parenting a sullen, mood swing addicted adolescent huddled over a computer or video game, this book is for you!

Disconnected has the power to once again get you access to the seemingly closed off virtual world of today’s adolescents. Understanding the changes that have taken place within the child is only part of the equation; learning to accept them and incorporate them into workable paradigms is the other. Six longings of today’s adolescents are revealed. Do you know what they crave, more than even their Nintendo DS?

Read on and also understand how you – as the parent – must change and accept the fact that the time of authoritarian parenting has ceased. It is now time to ease into the role of partnership parenting that demands a singular openness to a host of other entities; this is not something that comes easily, especially if you hold on to the belief that you know best what your child needs. The sad truth is that you probably don’t.

The goal of Disconnected is to help parents and their adolescents to traverse that awkward bridge that leads from a dependent childhood to an interdependent adulthood, but seems to only lead over a phase of independent adolescence. Interspersed with sound biblical references, the authors help you along the road. Pick up a copy before your child hits the preteen years or do it as soon as possible thereafter.
