Overview

Adults don't always realize that kids' problems can be as real and as serious as any that are faced by grown-ups. This book speaks directly to teens and preteens, spelling out some of the most serious problems they might encounter and offering straightforward advice on dealing with them. Author Tova Navarra poses 25 tough problems, then offers advice that includes ideas to foster a child's sense of self-awareness, self-empowerment, and self-respect. Just a few among the many issues discussed are: What if a parent is an alcoholic or an addict? . . . What if a child is feeling depressed for long periods of time? . . . What if a child has trouble with a step-parent? . . . What if a child is physically or sexually abused? . . . What if a child is overwhelmed and stressed by school? . . . What if a child has a weight problem or eating disorder? Young People/Tough Problems addresses thorny issues that kids are often reluctant to talk about. But kids who suffer from any of these difficulties urgently need to talk about them, then learn how to cope with them. While offering guidance to kids, this book will also be helpful to their parents, grandparents, and teachers. (Ages 10-14)

Provides guidance and encouragement for dealing with such tough life issues as divorce, alcohol and drug addiction, depression, peer pressure, dating, and guns in schools.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Several titles break down the basics for kids and teens, offering information that's both practical and fun. An updated version of Playing It Smart: What to Do When You're On Your Own (1989), The Kids' Guidebook: Great Advice to Help Kids Cope by Tova Navarra, illus. by Tom Kerr, encourages self-reliance with suggestions on how to handle a variety of situations from "What to do if you get a splinter" to "What to do if someone touches you in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable." Kid-friendly language presented in digestible chunks of text and with cartoonlike illustrations leaven the lessons.
