For many teens today, the carefree days of youth are anything but happy-go-lucky. From alcohol
and other drug use
to relationship issues
and eating disorders
, teens are confronted with high-risk pressures and problems--whether experienced personally, through their friends, or with family members. Where can teens turn for help and advice? The experts at KidsPeace, a nonprofit organization serving children and families, created this lively, interactive book to help teens handle difficult issues and develop confidence in their own abilities and self-worth. Personal stories, fast facts, and self-tests help teens learn how to recognize when a friend or family member is in trouble and find help, to identify their own issues and seek help, and to take care of themselves when feeling overwhelmed by problems of friends or family members. In the process, teens learn one of life's greatest lessons about healing the importance of connecting with others who understand, care, and can help.
