Though today's youth culture may seem totally self-centred, kids still want close relationships with the significant adults in their lives. Like generations before them, they also want to be noticed for the contributions they can make. What they need, though, is compassion and encouragement from their parents. Combining inspiring stories from his professional experience with research from around the world, Michael Ungar reveals how the close connections kids crave, and the support adults provide, can help kids achieve their full potential - and how it can also protect them from the dangers of delinquency, whether it be drug abuse, violence, or early sexual activity. A fresh, optimistic approach to our children's true nature and potential.
