The wisdom of youth

I am in the process of co-authoring a book. The idea for this book came about during the many discussion I have had with the youth I teach at church. It has been during these many discussions that as a class we decided that creating a book for parents was in order.

As parents we mean well, we look at how we were raised as children then we adopt the ideals that we learned and pass them down to our children. We do our best to give them all the tools they need to survive in life but there are still times we feel like we don’t know what is going on.

I have heard it said that the “Greatest Generation” ever born were those that participated in WWII. After over 15 years of teaching the youth I believe the “Greatest Generation” are the newly born, the yet to be born, on up through their teens and early twenty’s. It is this group that has seen the greatest changes in our world and will yet see many more changes. It is to this generation that I ask for help. I want to know from you, what you would have your parents do differently, what type of parent you want to be and finally, what we as parents can do to insure you have what you need to not only survive in this world but to spread your wings and fly. I will not use your name if you wish to be kept anonymous. I seek your ideas, your wisdom, your insights and finally your permission to share all of these things with others.

Thank you,

Andrew U.
