Teenagers! Who needs them?

“Young People are Useless!”
“Adults Now Afraid to Challenge Young People!”
“Unless you have an official role, children are now ‘off limits’.”

These are just some of the headlines from reports and articles in recent years that point to a growing gap in the relationships between the world of adults and the world of young people. How did it come about that most adults feel estranged from most young people?  Kenny Wilson’s, book looks at this growing estrangement and the effect that it has had on young people. He identifies some of the key causes, poses some questions for society and invites those involved with young people, agencies, faith organisations and government, to begin to the process of repairing the damage and moving in better ways for future generations.

After all, who wants their son or daughter to be labelled as ‘useless’?
