RAISING A THOUGHTFUL TEEN-AGER: A Book of Answers and Values for Parents. By Ben Kamin. Dutton. $20.95.
Rabbi Ben Kamin presents 22 difficult questions posed by a cross-section of teens. He deals with the answers to the questions and addresses the way parents should react and respond.
The rabbi has not written a chapter-and-verse, throw-the-book-at-them advice book. He presents a gentler but well-grounded alternative. As he says, when youngsters ask a question, they aren't looking for a prayer, they are looking for an answer.
