Dealing with Your Kids' 7 Biggest Troubles: Lying, Cheating, Stealing, Sexual Acting Out, Drugs & Alcohol, Suicide, Violence. A Boys Town How-To Book.
Peter, Val J.
Noting that children want love and acceptance from trustworthy adults, this book reflects upon the destructive impulses that threaten the emotional, physical, and spiritual life of youth and families. The book identifies and describes behaviors that tempt adolescents with instant relief and gratification, but which ultimately lead to feelings of self-destruction and despair. Seven chapters address the following behavior problems: (1) lying; (2) stealing; (3) drugs and alcohol; (4) cheating; (5) sexual acting out; (6) suicide; and (7) violence. Each section includes practical advice for parents and cautionary tales designed to motivate them to open dialogue with their children. (KB)
