by Andrew Spowart, B.A., M.A., M.Ed.    « View Author's BIO

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!

The Guilty Teacher (Soft cover)

The Guilty Teacher (Soft cover)
by Dr. Paulette B. Maggiolo    « View Author's BIO

Synopsis
Soft Cover
This book is a remarkable accomplishment--on one hand it is a riveting story with achingly real characters. On the other it is a light illuminating the hidden darkness in our classrooms and forcing us to see that drug use is a widespread blight on this country's educational system. Naive parents must wake up. Jaded educators must take courage. Only united can we prevail against a problem that does not discriminate by race, religion or family tree.
The teens in this book are pitiful but the pity the author creates is more the life they lead than the people themselves.
It's not their fault, according to the writer, but the fault of the environment and people who were suppose to be in charge.
