Detailing daily actions that have a lasting significance on kids, this guide for all adults shows that positive adultchild relationships are one of the most important factors affecting a young person’s development. Rather than focusing on teens' problems, this handbook takes a proactiveapproach and highlights hopeful actions adults can take to have a positive impact on a young person’s life. For example, adults will learn to use 30-second encounters to offer compliments and to ask meaningful questions of children that lead to deeper conversations. This call to action invites every adult to be an advocate for children and teenagers, promoting happier, healthier, and more successful youth.
