Limiting Adolescence in a World Desperate for Adults
How do we become adults? Is it by moving out of our parents’
house? Earning an independent income? Getting married? Having
children? Buying a house? Those are the benchmarks most of us
use, but Growing Up suggests that maturity is more about qualities
of character. Through the poignant stories of nearly half a century
working with young people as a teacher, school administrator,
high school and college chaplain, parish priest, and father of three,
Frank Strasburger shares the encouraging news that the pace and
power with which we become adults is largely within our control.
Chapter by chapter, he unfolds the real process of growing up:
facing down the fear of failure, wrestling honestly with identity
and relationship, finding passion, overcoming illusions of power,
discovering faith, and discerning a sense of mission. Strasburger’s
bottom line: it is in serving others that we become the people we’re
meant to be.
