What They Don’t Teach Teens: Life Safety Skills for Teens and the Adults Who Care for Them
It’s hard enough to navigate life, let alone being an adolescent in today’s world. Jonathan Cristall, Esq. has taken some touchy subjects and distilled them into an easy-to-read guide for teens and those who love them. Information is broken into one of three sections: dealing with police and street safety, sexual violence and misconduct, and staying safer online.
The information in this book is laid out in clear, easy-to-read, conversational language. The author provides some guidance as to what teens’ options might be in the situations. The very end of the chapter offers a brief quiz to make sure readers are comprehending the information. For this reason, the book is a great tool to work through alongside a teenager to talk through the information and real-world situations.
The content is pretty heavy and some of it can be bleak, such as gun violence and how to react if you suspect someone might perpetrate a gun crime, so this would be good to go through with the teen in your life to offer guidance and support. There are multiple information-packed appendices in the back of the book, including tips for parents on how to approach the information in the book with their teens.
This is a very valuable guide to tough topics that are relevant in the lives of young people. Highly recommended.
