Raising Adults: Getting Kids Ready for the Real World
Are your children becoming adults, or just adult-aged children? Jim Hancock takes a straight-forward look at the mindset of today's generations and their different life perspectives. He challenges assumptions and creates common ground to allow parents to train their children to accept responsibility and gain an adult perspective on life. "Raising Adults" includes a thirty day guarantee that parents can change their relationship with their child by doing "nothing" -- in other words, by not practicing certain toxic behaviors over thirty days. Jim also addresses ten distinctives he believes ring true for youth in today's culture including a sense of isolation, anger, and hopelessness. As a former youth worker, Hancock writes on a down-to-earth, relational level.
