The higher manifestations of love cannot be realized unless certain basic human
needs for attachment, pleasure, and self-regard are met and patterned by
intimate communities such as the family and larger communities of memory —
authoritative communities such as churches, synagogues, mosques, and various
other intergenerational voluntary organizations with an extended history and
narrative. The hope is that these authoritative communities can themselves work
together ...

They conclude that when adolescents are integrated into what the report calls “
authoritative communities”— that is, religious institutions, intact families and other
civic institutions serving children (such as the YMCA)—those adolescents are
much more likely to believe that life is worth living. In the words of one of the
members of the commission, W. Bradford Wilcox, a sociologist at the University of
Virginia: These communities provide adolescents with a sense of belonging and

When adolescents are integrated into what this report describes as "authoritative
communities" — religious institutions, intact families, and other civic institutions
serving children (such as the YMCA) — they think life is worth living. These
communities provide them with a sense of belonging and with moral and spiritual
meaning that lends their lives purpose and hope. When adolescents have no ties
, or only attenuated ties, to authoritative communities, they lose hope and
become ...

One key, however, lies in the biblical idea of healthy community. Children in
single-parent homes must be surrounded with loving extended family members
and healthy authoritative communities. A tween girl with no mother-model in her
life needs to spend both quality and quantity time with a loving aunt or
grandmother. If neither of these is available, then the faith community should be
the next concentric circle in which to seek out a feminine role model. If you're a
single dad raising a ...

The answer is in the report's subtitle: "The New Scientific Case for Authoritative
Communities." That's authoritative, not authoritarian. As the principal investigator,
Kathleen Kovner Kline of Dartmouth, said on ABC's Good Morning America, that
children are too often left to their own devices to figure out their place in the world
. "What we need," she told Diane Sawyer, "is a particular form of engagement that
is both warm and loving and also has expectations and limits. We think it works ...

The genre of the literature is determined, therefore, by an interaction between the
words on the page and the community of readers. As the needs of readers
change, genre changes. A text means what a community of readers permits it to
mean, and authorial intention has very little to do with it.2 This thesis has different
names among the academic disciplines. Literary critics focus on an authoritative
community and their collective readers' response.3 Anthropologists speak of the
impact ...
