Abstract:

Detailing daily actions that have a lasting significance on kids, this guide for all adults shows that positive adult-child 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.
