Back cover copy

Adolescence is the final stage of childhood, the springboard to adult life and a time where values are being blended into a mixture that adults can still greatly influence. Raising Responsible Teenagers is a survival guide and more for all those who interact with children on a daily basis. It shows clearly and comprehensively why children behave as they do at different ages, and how they can be brought up to be responsible adults without curtailing their natural instincts or indulging them. Bob Myers uses his years of experience of working with children and adolescents to show how they can be encouraged to develop themselves. Each chapter contains detailed examples and checklists for further thought, as well as a fund of helpful advice. This book provides an extremely useful guide for all who wish to interact with young people in a relaxed and mutually-respectful manner, and who wish to see them develop into considerate, achieving and responsible adults.
