An Adolescent in Your Home.
Children's Bureau (DHEW), Washington, DC.
This simply written book for parents on their adolescent children examines the kinds of problems young people and their parents face, and it tries to stimulate understanding between the members of two very different generations. During this period the adolescent's physical and social concerns must be given attention. The adolescent needs to develop attitudes and skills that are necessary to make him a useful member of society. There are some common areas of conflict between parent and adolescent. The youngster may steal, cheat, or use drugs. A wise parent will resist the temptation to turn the adolescent out; rather, he will work to get him on the right track again. Adolescence is described as a time of preparation for the future. If a teenager's goals seem far beyond the parent's means, he must not be discouraged; there are opportunities for scholarships and work-study fellowships. He must be encouraged to speak his own mind about his choice of a career. (Author/RVJ)
