    1. OverviewIt isn't easy being the parent of a teenager in today's society so parents need to use every tool they have to help their teenagers be happy, productive and positive members of their community. The approach described in the book focuses on helping parents to identify, nourish and encourage their teenager's "sparks." According to the author, a spark: * gives energy and joy * provides the feeling of being alive, useful and purposeful * is absorbing to the point that you "lose yourself in t [...]


    2. Sparks: How Parents Can Ignite the Hidden Strengths of Teenagers by Peter L. Benson offers ways for parents to encourage their teens to follow the things in life that make them spark. When I hear the word spark, I can't help but think of Agatha Heterodyne, main character of Girl Genius. Sparks, though isn't about mad science or steampunk. Instead it's a straightforward parenting book to help parents connect with their children.The book began with the thesis that modern teens were so driven by th [...]


    3. This book was recommended at freshman orientation two years ago. I nally got around to reading it. While the premise is true: that teens with "sparks" are better, don't do "risky" behaviors and become productive adults, the approach outlines seemed a bit simplistic. The part I enjoyed most was the individual "success stories."The five step process is:1. Recognize the power of sparks.2. Know your own teenager.3. Help discover and reveal your teen's sparks.4. Be the captain of your teen's spark te [...]


    4. Wonderful how to book. Very practical. Full of wonderful stories. Easy to understand data. (Wish educational journal articles were this easy to understand!) A little repetitive at times and some "no brainers," but overall positive. Stimulated lots if conversations with my teenagers in the car and at the dinner table!


    5. Some kids seem to have the ability to reach out and discover the things that excite and intrigue them. This book helps parents understand the importance of these "sparks" - talents or skills or competencies that help people express and fulfill themselves. It gives insight into how to nurture this spark in the kids we come in contact with.


    6. Yes, great advice on how to support your child's spark. Mostly common sense and good parenting, though, and not as much on how to identify your child's spark (which is where I am). Dovetails with the findings outlined in Steven Wagner's "Creating Innovators."


    7. Didn't love this book. I understand the importance of following the spark, but i feel this content could have been said in a few chapters. I was hoping for more creative approaches. But because the content was relevant I didn't totally dismiss this book.


    8. I used this book for one of my magazine articles and thought the concepts were great and were even applicable for adults. Great book!
