How was school? Who are you hanging out with? Adults ask youths these perfunctory questions all the time, and they usually get perfunctory answers, the authors say. But parents and youth workers are more likely to find out what they want by using creative questioning. One way to make it happen is through a time-tested youth favorite: watching movies. Pevec and Richardson explain how adults can use themes in movies to foster dialogue with youth. (978) 263-7595, http://www.vandb.com.
