Talking to Teens

I always found the book “How to talk so kids will listen, and how to listen so kids will talk” very good (as a parent and school volunteer). It’s running about $6 used on Amazon right now and free at your local library. It’s pretty useful in terms of ‘attitude’ to help do those teen focus groups and advisory panels.
Here’s a short article/paper that Jill Ann Hurst pointed to on her blog, Digitization 101. It’s easy to digest and forms a manifesto of sorts.
It’s called “How to talk to teens” by Josh Shipp. You can find it here.
Anyway, you might find it useful for those libraries that need something simple for a lunchtime brown bagger discussion. This one seems wiser than others.

  1. Steve, thanks for mentioning my post and blog. Now…this shows how LONG we’ve known each other…my last name is no longer “Hurst”; it’s “Hurst-Wahl”. Changed in 2004. Nope, not mad, just setting the record straight!
