Let’s face it, parenting and educating teens is hard. Our modern world can be a loud, fast, brash, angry place, and teens, parents and educators are stuck in the middle of it every day. Teens can struggle with navigating modern life (in person and online—the only life they know!). Parents and educators can feel alone, frustrated and powerless to help (you’re not!).

At the same time, school shootings and other real world problems seem “too big” to solve. In reality, we have the power to create real change that can help reverse current alarming trends and redefine our “new normal.” By working together, we can begin to change the current trend (in schools and in the real world) that violence, aggression, anger, and murder are the answers to solving problems. School shootings and other school violence will not stop because “someone else” does something about it. Parents and people who touch the lives of kids are at the very root of what it will take to stop future school shootings.

This book aims to take a “real talk” look at a range of issues facing our kids today from an educator’s perspective and give parents and fellow educators strategies they can use to work with their kids to improve their own worlds. If we all work together on this, anything is possible.

This book addresses school shootings and our often aggressive, overly angry world. It also addresses the lives teens live every day, covering topics ranging from stress and anxiety to social media to bullying to GPA and choosing classes in school. This book also looks at teens and school, including discussions about grades, class sizes, relationships, goal-setting, habits, motivation (and/or the lack of it), and more.
