“The Second Decade” offers a game plan for navigating two of the most important challenges facing today’s youth: gaining academic skills through a quality education at school, and acquiring practical skills learned by working at a job. Exposing youth to the benefits of work — earning money and gaining independence while taking on responsibility and embracing accountability — adds valuable lessons to what is already being offered at home and in school, and will lead them to happiness and self-sufficiency.
