Peter Benson continues to remind us of how far short of the mark we have fallen in meeting the needs of our youngest . Written for parents, community volunteers and professionals who work with children & youth, it describes 40 qualities (or assets) which help youth thrive

Peter Benson continues to remind us of how far short of the mark we have fallen in meeting the needs of our youngest generation. But then he provides a gift: a unifying vision that we can all rally around: parents, neighbors, youth-serving organizations, and ultimately whole communities committed to the healthy development of all our kids. Judy Vredenburgh, president and CEO, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. Written for parents, community volunteers and professionals who work with children & youth, it describes 40 qualities (or assets) which help youth thrive. The more of the 40 assets a youth has the better he/she does.

This thoughtful book should be read by anyone--parents, youth workers, ministers, community leaders, and policymakers--concerned about the future of America's children and the vitality of communities which they love. --Emmy Werner, University of California, Davis, author of Overcoming the Odds

Based on research from the renowned Search Institute, this groundbreaking critique of American culture offers practical strategies for uniting and mobilizing communities around a shared vision of healthy development.

Peter L. Benson introduces forty developmental assets-building blocks of healthy development. These assets--such as family support, intergenerational relationships, clear and consistent boundaries and expectations, participation in constructive activities, and community focus on values--are essential for all youth, regardless of background. Yet too few young people have these support structures in their lives. To increase assets among all kids, the author provides a compelling vision for a healthy community and specific recommAndations for individual, family and community action.

Reviews:
  • Bludsong
This asset-building approach to youth development and community development is solidly based on extensive research and meta-research. Thousands of youth have been surveyed to yield the great information. Written for parents, community volunteers and professionals who work with children & youth, it describes 40 qualities (or assets) which help youth thrive. The more of the 40 assets a youth has the better he/she does. A university student body president I knew felt he had 39 of the 40 assets; since I knew him to be a fabulous kid, it validated the asset-building framework for me. I urge every parent to get and read this, apply what you learn to your kids, and then go out and make your community more youth friendly. I have 3 copies; two of which are "loaners".
  • Grari
Bought this for an "intervention and prevention in adolescence" class and loved it! Very useful and at a great price.
  • Raniconne
Lots of informative information.
  • Coiriel
Benson's "All Kids are Our Kids" offers a sloppy, often hyperbolic, and superficial approach to the complex issue of how communities can support the healthy development of youth. The book--a product of The Search Institute's "developmental assets" franchise--is a pop-psych gumbo of child development knowledge. It's also badly edited. Readers would be advised to skip this "one smile at a time" treatise in favor of far more intelligent, perceptive, better grounded, and socially complex works, and there are many of them.
  • Dog_Uoll
Outstanding resource for anyone who works with youth (or anyone who has a heart for youth). I am the director of a large youth and community center in Los Angeles and this book has truly motivated me to work to build a stronger "community" with local schools, parents, neighborhood agencies that focus on supporting kids and their families.

This book is a must read!
