As a teen I was not like most, I wanted to go down my own beaten path of life. Not to say there weren’t some PPL (coaches, military leaders, & a few business mgr.’s) that I looked up to that had a huge + impact on my life, & of course kept me from going down a destructive path. My biological mom I never knew, my biological dad & step mom later a step dad were not ideal role models. My foster parents X 3 & my paternal grandmother how ever were. The majorly of teens I have worked with in counseling however, or even known do have their own idols or those they look up to.

Celebrities (musicians, movie stars, athletes), the media (magazines, TV news) & the internet (smart phones, iPad, etc.) might be/sometimes is/are a huge impact on how teens perceive the world. I don’t always agree with most opinions on this. I do have a problem with PPL totally blaming it on the teens - behavior. The environment they have to live in I guarantee you does. You have to be strong as hell in order to overcome those - odds. It cannot always be prevented/eliminated no matter how hard you try as a social worker (counselor).

Help teens set goals & fill their voids (self-esteem) by getting them involved in + stuff they enjoy doing, including sports, music, drama, clubs or many of the other after school activities. Also encourage them to get/build + friendships or find them + role models. Then look into community/church group organizations, Boys/Girl Scouts, Big Brothers/Sisters, YMCA, YWCA, etc.

The author’s Kimberly Davidson view is also the word of God. I grew up all over the U.S. (13 states), Canada & Mexico. From the time I was 6 I was involved in some sort of religion, Sunday school, bible study, church groups, leadership (deacon, choir, elder, President of the men’s group) & summer camp.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little too Preachy December 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
***I Received this book via a Goodreads Giveaway***

I found this book both helpful and not so helpful. There was some tips that can definitely help my teen focus on being him and not some celebrity that doesn't have it all together but what I didn't like was that the author came across as judgmental.

If you don't mind being preached at, you will get some helpful information from this book but if you're like me and don't care for the holier than thou attitude you may not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moms, read this! March 6, 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a mom, I cringe at how obsessed our youth (and adults) is with Hollywood and sports celebrities. The material is well-written, excellent and thought provoking. I learned a lot. This book provides great insights . . . so good. Every parent of a teen needs to read it.
