When Wallace asks teens what their parents could do to discourage drinking, the answers were surprisingly simple: Talk to us. Teens say they want to know what their parents think and how they make decisions. Punish us. Teens who break rules typically wait to see what happens. If there are no consequences, the rules don’t matter. Limit overnight visits. Reality Gap: Alcohol, Drugs, and Sex-What Parents Don’t Know and Teens Aren’t Telling, Union Square Press, 2008.

Growing up isn't what it used to be—it's more difficult and more dangerous. Even in “safe” places like school, teens face complicated decisions about personal behavior, involving everything from drinking, to drugs, to sex. Unfortunately, many adults don't fully grasp the true scope of the perilous world our teens inhabit. Stephen Wallace points out the “reality gap” separating parents and adults from young people at the time they need them most—adolescence—and offers concrete solutions to bridge this gulf. Grounded in hard facts with practical, common-sense advice, Reality Gap combines Wallace's 25-plus years of experience working with young people as a school psychologist, adolescent counselor, camp director, and college professor with groundbreaking research on adolescent attitudes and behaviors from SADD. Wallace includes concrete suggestions for improving teen-adult communication as well as age-specific “decision-points” at which parents should address various issues with their teen and pre-teen children. With Wallace's strong media contacts, professional affiliations, and extensive speaking platform Reality Gap promises to be the go-to book on a vital topic.Wallace highlights the myths and rationalizations of teens and adults that help fuel the reality gap: • The myth of improbability: “It's not going to happen to my kid.” • The myth of inevitability: “She's a teenager, of course, she's going to drink.” • The myth of irrelevancy: “I'm the parent, he's not going to listen to me.” • The myth of invincibility: “I'm young, I'm healthy, I'm not going to get hurt.” • The myth of immunity: “Even if I get caught, I'll get out of it.”

Reality Gap gives the parents of teens important information and insight. Foremost, Reality Gap provides a window into what teens are up to these days. Wallace delivers compelling research data from the field combined with personal accounts. The resulting landscape of behavior described in Reality Gap will be of great interest to any parent, regardless of their individual views on drinking or sex.

Few parents will fail to pause when reading about personal cases of teens who wished that they had talked with their parents before making choices they now regret. Peer pressure to drink early, to become sexually active - the list goes on. Without lecturing, Wallace's accounts remind us of the associated consequences whether it is the onset of lifelong battles with addiction or the regrettable occurrences of sexual diseases such as herpes.

Wallace's message is that parents can help their children through the teen years. Reality Gap provides parents with tools for approaching these issues and Wallace's encouraging message is that parents can help their children make better, and safer, decisions if they talk with them - and do so early.

I have read numerous books on this topic so I did skip some of the sections that seemed a bit redundant, but it is still a great read for those who want to see just how much of a gap there is between what teens know/do and what their parents think is going on. The books gives lots of examples on a variety of topics and is written well for those of any educational background.

I have purchased all kinds of books on parenting,most recently on the teen years. This is the first book that I am having a hard time putting down. It is surprising how young kids are today when they are getting into alcohol, sex, drugs, etc. I thought that I was pretty on top of these things - boy was this book an eye opener. It has been helpful in facilitating some good dialogue with my teenage son and preteen son.
