What's Right for Me? Making Good Choices in Relationships.
Herron, Ron; Peter, Val J.
This book is designed to help adolescents deal with their interpersonal relationships. It utilizes personal stories of teenagers who have experienced difficulties in their own lives to discuss various issues. Specifically, this book discusses how teens can: set physical and emotional boundaries that make them feel comfortable and will keep them safe; stop cruel teasing or avoid the attention of a bully; recognize prejudice and learn what they can do to stop it; stay in control even when they are angry; end a relationship that turns violent or possessive; handle friends who try to pressure them into doing something they don't want to; and recognize when they are being conned into a sexual relationship that they are not ready for and don't want.
