Great book for teens  Aug 19, 2009
This is a great book! I love all the ideas they have. Great information for tens and preteens!
 
1001 Things Every Christian Teen Should Know Before They Leave Home  Aug 8, 2009
I wish I would have found this book sooner.
It's incredibly useful.
The author lets you know about important things you should look into (especially financial things).

Surprisingly, he consistently mentions God; I thought this was a secular book (minus 1 star for the surprise sermon).
I love God, but I think this book could have easily shared the title of this review.
 
If God's the only problem, then...  Jul 26, 2009
I haven't actually read this yet. It looks like fun and would be something my teen daughter would appreciate. The only negative comments that I've seen for this book are that it puts an emphasis on God and the importance of His presence in our lives. Well...if that's the only "problem" with this book then sign me up! I'll take it.
 
very disappointed in pro-god preachiness  Jan 18, 2009
I bought this book for my teenage daughter at the Bed-Bath-&-Beyond checkout counter. I didn't think about it too much until she started browsing it and asking me questions like "What does it mean to invite God into the bedroom"? I did a double-take, and asked her to show me what she was reading:

#476: They should know that if they can't invite God into the bedroom, then it's no place for them either.

#520: They should know the most intimate act a couple can do together is pray together.

#521: They should know that once they get married, God has an interest in seeing them stay married.

etc.

Anyway, we had a constructive little talk about all of this, and our joint conclusion was that this is a pretty superficial book, without a lot of practical substance or relevance on the very deepest & most important topics. (Unless of course, you're an extremely faith-based parent or teenager.)

I thought for a second that perhaps this was a new reprint from a 1940's or so original, but in fact the copyright is 2007. There is no indication on the back-cover blurb that Harry's idea of "help[ing] parents understand exactly what every teen needs to know to survive in the adult world" is to reinforce the primacy of God / prayer / faith.

I would certainly not recommend this book to anyone.
 
Useful, but with an Agenda  Sep 2, 2007
I got this as a senior in college, to teach myself some valuable nuances of adult life. What I got was little bite-sized bits of information and advice (with little to no explanation as to how to accomplish what is being advised), as well as something a little more repulsive. The author includes advice tinged with religious conservatism (496: "They should know that an abortion will haunt both parents for the rest of their lives" and 520:"They should know the most intimate act a couple can do together is pray together.") and rabid Pro-Americanism ( 115: "They should know what Marxism is, and why a Marxist candidate for dogcatcher is not a good idea."). This says to me, "Let's teach our children to fear God and automatically reject anything that goes against our American Status-Quo." As an atheist and free-thinker, this is not the sort of blind advice I would like passed down to my children, the kind of advice that turns us into complacent zombies without the ability to question or think for themselves. However, there are some decent nuggets of advice for young people that could save a lot of time, money, and embarrassment down the road, and any bit of advice a parent doesn't agree with can be safely ignored.

I would think this book a useful tool for parents raising pre-teen children and for young adults who want to lead an independent life. If anything, it helps one to find oneself as a parent.
