Adolescent Issues
by Andrew Spowart, B.A., M.A., M.Ed.    « View this author's BIO

Excerpt:
I always tell parents the decision to either attend court or not is theirs...not their child's. However, before you make your decision, I would like to present you with some relevant information.
When I see young people standing alone in a young offender's courtroom I sense they not only feel parental rejection, but are convinced of it. Such rejection can prove quite damaging to any young person's self concept.
Your daughter is only 14. It's her first offense. She feels guilty and embarrassed which could explain her not wanting you in court. She is also anxious and filled with apprehension at the thought of standing alone before a judge. Your presence in court would not only provide your daughter emotional support but also the dignity of having the court see she was not alone (the court looks favourably on parent(s) being present).

Synopsis
Soft Cover
"Adolescent Issues" is a selection of the author's published works covering the following topics:
Street Kids
Popularity
Dropouts
Alcohol Abuse
Young Offenders
Peer Group Identity
The author's experience working with adolescents is diversified and extensive. For example, he has been involved directly with young offenders, street kids, dropouts, drug abusers and teens in specialized residences. This "front line" involvement has taken him into youth courts, schools, hospitals, detention centres and treatment facilities. In this book, the author shares some of these experiences with his readers, hoping the content is informative and useful to them.
A MUST READ for all parents!

Price: $15.95(CDN)
