Bringing Up Geeks - Softcover Book - pp 313 - Marybeth Hicks


Today's "Culture of Cool" has changed the way kids grow up.

Rather than enjoying innocent childhoods while developing strong authentic characters, today's kid can become cynical -- even jaded -- as they absorb the dangerous messages and harmful influences of a dominant popular culture that encourages materialism, his-risk behaviors, and a state of pseudo-adulthood.

Marybeth Hicks suggests an alternative to the culture of cool: bringing up geeks. In the groundbreaking book, she redefines geeks as Genuine, Enthusiastic, Empowered Kids, and inspires parents to free themselves and their kids from cultural conditioning while instilling in their children truly important values. With Hick's ten rules for raising geeks, you can help your child gain:

-the enthusiasm to pursue his or her greatest passions, not just the latest fashions
-the confidence to resist peer pressure and destructive behaviors in the quest to be accepted
-the love of learning that helps him or her excel at school -- and in life
-the maturity to value family as well as friends, and make good moral decisions.

With this foundation, they'll be the coolest kids on the block.
