Abstract

We wrote in the introduction that we are not the first generation of adults to experience pain, frustration, and even fear in dealing with our youth. It is important that parents, teachers, and all others who interact with youth also recognize and validate these feelings as they arise in themselves and in others. Equally important is to recognize that our youth embody all hope and aspirations we share for the future of humanity. They are worth the considerable effort, expense, and personal investment we are required to make. Our own generation’s historical worth and value may be, and probably will be, measured by the extent to which we succeed or fail to socialize our youth. We are inextricably connected to them for better or worse.
