It just did not really answer my questions about inking in a way that I found transferable to youth at church

Thanks to the opposition and the tone of these flesh driven reviews, I know this book hits right where it is suppose to, the moral conscious. We did not make ourselves and therefore like anything else you have not paid for, it, being you, does not belong to you! Thanks Ron for being bold enough to care about a generation of children with no regard for authority and without enough vision to see themselves as anything more than a want to be clone of what Hollywood is pushing out at the moment. God bless the few parents left who actually care how their children turn out. Thanks for partnering with us

I expected this book to make the case for why many things that teens believe

are "myths". Instead it was more about how you should or shouldn't respond to your teen. To be fair the subtitle is "A Parent's Respnse Handbook" It would seem more appropriate to me to make the subtitle the main title. It's a useful book for those want this type of handbook. It's just not what I expected.

CAn you believe this Royteel guy, the scary thing is 4 people like his viewpoint. Wow, this guys idea is to throw in the towel, be "cool", and irresponsibly non-raise your children. According to Royteel, you are a fundamentalist and the cause of the problem with youth today unless you understand that tatoos can be positive, everyone is having pre-marital sex, and it should be obvious to any mutton head that our new culture IS acceptable, deal with it. Oh, and trying to teach your child the benefits of only having sex after being married (biblical teaching) is DANGEROUS. All the youths problems today have to do with Christians and their fundamentalist beliefs. Rid yourselves of those outmoded, ancient , false beliefs. And while you are at it, get rid of any bibles you have around the house since the scriptual teachings are the cause of all problems. So be your kids cool friend, help him /her get a good tatoo for a positive self image, encourage pre-marital sex (to do otherwise would be dangerous), do not "spew" biblical teachings, but accept culture as the world (satan) says it should be, and above all, disregard everything you have been taught about leading a christian life, forget about your personal salvation, and encourage your children to embrace worldly, fleshly ways. INCREDIBLE. Hey Roy, I would try to help you , but I would have to charge you by the hour. You are obviously a poster child for the product of our government humanistic educational system who is one with your father satan, the father of lies. Just because you are a gullable idiot who is full of hate and pathetically trying to push your rag, don't think anyone who has the capacity to think is going to get into your boat. You have just succeeded in selling another book by Mr. Luce. You ought to be ashamed of yourself.

Format: Paperback
This book attempts to take critical aim at American youth and the youth culture but falls miserably short. It is a book preaching to parents how to preach to their children. It covers the gambit as is stated in the sales pitch of youth related issues. Tattoos, piercings, premarital sex, Christian doctrine and the list goes on. What Mr. Luce fails to give to his audience is any kind of sound advice and practical knowledge that parents could apply to their lives and the lives of their children. This title spews the same old Christian fundamentalist formulas that have created the situation we face with youth today. The youth of America don't trust the establishment in general and especially the hard line Christian platform. The youth don't need to be preached to they need to be taught, given sound practical and applicable guidance that they can apply to their every day lives. This book doesn't do that in any form. Mr. Luce would have us all put our heads in the sand and ignore the obvious changes in society and the acceptability of our new culture. This is a book of 50's fundamentalist propaganda and nothing more. Mr. Luce would have the youth of America abstain from sex, express themselves in ways only acceptable to the fundamentalist Christian agenda by takeing vows of celibacy or sexual abstinence, which is proven unsuccessful and dangerous, instead of standing up and teaching young people about sex and its positive and its negative implications on life if handled in appropriately. The permanence of Tattoo art which if well thought out can be positive for the youth but should be carefully considered and practical education from home. Our youth are in trouble because they have been enslaved by this kind of fundamentalist and intolerant thinking, in this reviewers opinion this title is a waste of time and money.
