Inhaltsangabe: Engaging and timely, this book is an invaluable resource for parents who want their children to become socially responsible and globally aware adults
As youth culture seems to grow more self-centred and obsessed with "Me,"Michael Ungar shows us that, in fact, children today are as willing as ever to think "We." Given the right signals, and some important changes to the homes we live in, our schools and communities, kids will seek out close connections with the adults in their lives. Like generations before them, they want to be noticed for the contributions they can make. What they need, though, is compassion and encouragement from parents, and some careful attention to their most important connections, those made at home. Combining inspiring stories taken from his clinical work with families and children with expert research gathered from around the world, Ungar reveals how the close connections kids crave, and the support adults provide, can help kids realize their full potential - and how it can also protect them from the dangers of delinquency, whether it be drug abuse, violence, or early sexual activity.
At a time when global issues and activism have come to the forefront, We Generation offers a fresh, optimistic way of thinking about our children?s true nature and potential.
Rezension: "Library Journal," 10/15 "In chapters analyzing various types of connections--family, spiritual, physical, architectural--Ungar concludes each chapter with a 'tips list' for ways to nurture kind connections. This pairs nicely with two other recent standouts: Kim John Payne's "Simplicity Parenting" and Polly Young-Eisendrath's "The Self-Esteem Trap."" Blogcritics.org, 10/11 "A good read for both parents and children...I would recommend this book to adults raising small children so they can immediately start to build security into their family interactions. I would hope parents of older teens would purchase several copies so all can read "The We Generation" at the same time and discuss it." "Tuscon Citizen," "Shelf Life" blog, 10/11 "By sharing the inspiring stories of his work with families, Dr. Ungar...offers a plan of how to raise more engaged, community-minded kids during this era of self-centered obsession...This is a well-crafted book filled with sane advice." InfoDad.com, 11/12/09 "A good deal of what Ungar urges is plain and simple unselfishness and cooperation, which are certainly worthy goals...The basic idea here--and it is a good one--is to avoid providing children so much that asks nothing of them that they become focused entirely on themselves...Parents who share Ungar's worldview will surely find "The We Generation" uplifting." "ForeWord," November/December 2009 "Offers effective suggestions on how to prepare children to become compassionate by engaging in simple acts of kindness...[A] helpful guidebook...A useful addition to the list of parental handbooks." "Internet Review of Books," December 2009 "Plenty of practical tips...[A] well-researched book, so it will appeal to a wide range of parents." Mama's Musings blog, 1/29/10 "[Ungar] turns a hopeful eye to the next generation who are more aware of social, economic and environmental issues than their parents...Michael Ungar's book is like a prosey hug. He clearly walks his talk with an authentic voice, one by which we would do well to abide." "Plymouth Magazine," February 2010 "For those seriously interested in raising socially-conscious kids, this book is a must read. Not only does the author do a fabulous job of exploring the causes of 'me' thinking versus 'we' thinking, but he also gives parents simple ideas to help kids become active members of their home, church, school and community, making an impact in everything they do. Find fantastic techniques to try with children as young as preschool all the way through young adulthood." "Costa Mesa"" Daily Pilot," 7/25/10"Written in the spirit of helping parents foster their offspring to be less self-involved and more consciously compassionate people...This is a hopeful appeal to parents who want to improve the next generation's awareness of social, economical and environmental issues." "Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry," August 2010"Teach[es] parents how to help their children become mindful of others...Ungar thoughtfully focuses on the importance of parent modeling...To draw in the audience, Ungar artfully weaves small vignettes throughout the text to showcase specific points...He offers unusual and insightful recommendations...An eye-opening read of how to approach the younger generation in a manner that shies away from being judgmental and accusatory. Instead, this book offers the reader some inspiring real-life examples of how the approach of accountability and responsibility can work to increase mindfulness...I would highly recommend this book to any parent, teacher, mentor, or community leader...[It] provides a fresh perspective on how to increase the investment our society's future young leaders have in themselves and in the world around them." "Contexts," Winter 2011 "Ungar's critique of the isolating features of affluent suburbia is biting and apropos."
