Recent surveys suggest that while modern-day teenagers face many of the same problems as their predecessors of a generation ago, these problems may have more serious repercussions. Today's teenagers have many decisions to make regarding drugs, sex, violence, and the like, all of which impact on their lives. A major purpose of this book is to help both adults and teenagers understand why they behave as they do, while giving solid information about the consequence of their behaviours. The book has been prepared essentially for those persons, particularly parents, teachers, and other adult 'overseers' who must share in the joys, sorrows, and other emotional experiences in dealing with teenagers in this critical seven-year period of their lives.
