Description: In starkly explicit terms, Dr. Ron Taffel describes a phenomenon that until now has had no name. Based on thousands of interviews with kids and adults, he defines the "second family" -- the unprecedented, collective power of the peer group and pop culture. It is a force so pervasive that it threatens to overwhelm the first family of adults. And it operates according to new rules: peer pressure is dead; rebellion is out; comfort is what teens crave. As a result, good children chronically lie without a trace of guilt, have sex at mind-bogglingly early ages, and use alcohol and drugs, not to be bad, but simply because they are there.

But The Second Family is not an irrationally alarmist book. It describes the hidden strengths of these influential groups -- a secret moral code of peer support that stuns adults; strong friendships between girls and boys; a tendency of boys to take care of those in need; and the role of girls as powerful group leaders. For parents must understand the lure of the second family and the void it fills if they are to insure that their own true family comes first.
