Top Customer Reviews
Horrible and untrue, manipulative, sexphobic, and shaming to both genders. Wish there were a zero-stars rating. This book will not teach your teen anything healthy about relationships in any way at all. It's a manual of false social and sexual education, the opposite of which teenagers need desperately. This is why there is a teen pregnancy problem among more religious communities; lack of any sort of honesty in the subject of healthy relationships and safekeeping of the body. Abstinence-only education is pure indoctrination.
As a teacher, and ***especially*** as a teacher of girls, I find this kind of book shameful and deplorable. It's a disgrace to educators and parents everywhere that this book and others like it exist. There is literally zero reason to teach your child to be ashamed of their sexual urges, their bodies, or their thoughts. Furthermore, there is apparently a STAR RATING AS TO HOW "DATEABLE" SOMEONE IS. So teach your teen they're measurable on a scale, go ahead and shame them if they feel differently, because that's what it's all about: conforming. They teach girls that all men are out for is sex and that they should just say no to the "bait" that gets tossed to them, meaning now they'll assume any kind of nice gesture towards them is a play for sex and never learn the very important skill of differentiating between the two. Tells boys to "be powerful," whatever that means.
The word "dateable" is fake, fake, fake jargon. It is false; this book's standards are complete nonsense (because it really means "how Christian are you?") and furthermore they ABSOLUTELY promote a patriarchal, male-dominated ideal of relationships, which is also utterly utterly false. This Lookadoo guy is a mess of contradictions, stereotypes, embarrassingly misogynistic sentiments, and generally should not be allowed to brainwash teenagers or kids anywhere, ever. Pied piper of kids my middle-school teacher behind: this man has nothing valuable to teach my girls or my boys and I find it disgraceful that anyone would put this brainwashing piece of propaganda in their child's hands.
