"With the number of at-risk teens reaching epidemic proportions, it is natural to wonder if there are signs of hope. Are there any good kids out there? And, if so, what makes them turn out all right?" "Psychologists Nick Stinnett and Michael O'Donnell wanted to know the answers to these questions, so they embarked on an unprecedented search for healthy, well-adjusted teenagers. Thousands of interviews turned up plenty of normal, happy adolescents. In Good Kids, the authors share the heartwarming stories of these young people, and offer practical advice that gives the keys to teen success to parents, teachers, and youth alike." "An inspirational guide based on real-life experience, Good Kids helps teens and their parents navigate these formative years with confidence. The advice of two seasoned experts like Stinnett and O'Donnell enables the current generation of teenagers to turn the bad news into good news, and to create a brighter future for America."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
