Not my precious child

Tonight Is Too Late
Purtell
1965

Parents, all the possible sins your children are committing, behind your back, are right here in this conveniently packaged single volume. Purtell advocates open and honest communication with pre-teens about the consequences of drugs, premarital sex, and disease. Not too bad, especially for the time period. There are examples and quotes from law enforcement about their frustrations with the parents of young people that they are not stepping up to monitor their own children. Overall, Purtell is telling parents to wake up and smell the coffee about their precious child.

Evidently, time hasn’t changed much.

    1. Heck, people don’t even use STD/Sexually Transmitted Disease anymore. Now the “proper” term is STI/Sexually Transmitted Infection.
