Format: Paperback
"Surviving Peer Pressure for Teens" is a wonderful guide for educators! As a teacher of Middle School children this is an enlightening guide to the inner workings of their lives. You may not think Middle School students faces 'these' issues but unforuntately today they truly do!The book deals with everything from acting cool, to dressing cool and includes a poignant chapter on drinking and drugs. The authors, who openly admit they are just 'two chicks' use phrase and 'lingo' that I hear from my students in school--language that kids will enjoy hearing and would be able to relate to. The authors also adequately note and encourage teens to seek out help, beyond the confines of the text. The book also has sections called 'Kids with a Clue', where real teens open up about their personal experiences and how they were dealt with.
I recommend this book to any educator teaching middle-high school. Although some of my Middle School children aren't offically teens you can be assured they are experiencing this pressure ten-fold. As teachers we must understand our students, just like parents. This book is certainly able to provide a greater understanding of the pressures that "our" children face each day. I would also agree that giving this book to a Teen, for whom it truly is designed, would be most appropriate! Perhaps, teens would be intially frustrated by receiving such a text but would change their opinions as soon as they begin reading Chapter 1. Kudos to the authors. Thank you for helping me gain a greater insight into the lives of my students.

I bought this book for my 14-year-old daughter and wish I had gotten it two years sooner. She read it quickly, couldn't put it down, and laughed out loud more than once. She said the humor in the book really made it easy for her to accept the "messages" that the authors were trying to deliver. She especially liked the "Kids with a Clue," and wants to take the book to her Health class at school for the teacher to recommend to other students. We both feel that the book approaches a difficult subject with humor as well as great advice (Yes, I read the book, too, BEFORE I passed it on to my child). Well worth the read!

This book was an excellent source of information on pressures facing teens today. I read it hoping to gain some insight on how to relate to the issues that will face my children in the upcoming years. I was well-informed, and extremely entertained. This guide will certainly help parents to see things from the perspective of their kids, as well as teach the kids who read it some valuable lessons. And all of this is done in a light tone that never somes across as preachy! A truly terrific book!

As a middle-school teacher, I can assure you that this book was most helpful to a number of students in my classes. The writing is superb and the knowledge of children in the age group covered is obvious. I have reccommended it to other teachers as well as our librarian. It should be included on our library's shelves in the future.

I am an educator in New Jersey and we have recently started using this book in health classes in addition to making it available to parents and their youngsters. This publication is extremely well written and easy to understand. A "MUST READ" for parents and their teens. I give this book my highest rating!!!
