Summary
Citing how over-protected youth are ill-equipped to handle the demands of the real world, a guide to raising self-reliant young adults explains how to revive core formative experiences to create responsible, active, and engaged citizens
Summary
In The Vanishing American Adult, Sasse diagnoses the causes of a generation that can't grow up and offers a path for raising children to become active and engaged citizens. He identifies core formative experiences that all young people should pursue: hard work to appreciate the benefits of labor, travel to understand deprivation and want, the power of reading, the importance of nurturing your body--and explains how parents can encourage them
