Summary

Internationally acclaimed researchers Lois & Joel Davitz have assembled the toughest questions today's teens ask - answered each in firm, balanced, down-to-earth terms. The questions come from real teens & concern their pressing issues of sexuality, drugs, privacy, communication, physical appearance, friends, suicide, contraception, faith, peer pressure, & more. The answers avoid preaching, rules, & arbitrary directives yet provide firm rational guidelines that will make a difference in how teens feel about themselves. After decades of experience, these researchers really know teens & give them sensitive & sensible answers without backing off from controversial matters or "laying down the law." This straightforward, empathetic book is written directly for young people aged 12 to 21 in their own language & reflecting their own concerns; presents ways to think about right or wrong & moral values; provides guidelines that have enough room for teens to work out their own individual answers; comes from a liberal Christian tradition yet reelects such a firm moral stance, it's appropriate for school use; is a real eye-opener for adults who work or live with teens.
