From the Back Cover

You may have an amazing program and be well connected to your students, but that doesn't always guarantee a problem-free ministry. Whether it's the guy in the back of the room who's always causing trouble, or the girl in the corner with a look of indifference, disruptive and apathetic students can hinder the effectiveness of your ministry. But you don't have to let discipline problems drive you out of youth ministry (or out of your mind!). <br> <br>In this practical book, youth ministry veteran Les Christie will help you take a positive approach to discipline when it becomes necessary. When Church Kids Go Bad will:<br><br>reveal the reasons behind problem behavior and show you how to take a positive approach to discipline <br>teach you how to use rules and consequences effectively <br>help you evaluate your strengths and weaknesses in discipline situations (and improve your areas of weakness) <br>give you dozens of specific, practical, helpful ideas you can use immediately with your students <br><br>In addition to addressing the issues that are common to any youth ministry setting, Les will also give special attention to issues that present even more challenge, such as alcoholism and vandalism, students with learning differences, and teens with attention deficit disorders. <br> <br>After reading this book, you'll feel confident in your ability to use discipline as a tool to keep your group from disintegrating into chaos and frustration, and you'll be equipped to prevent future problems from popping up. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
