Depression, violence, pressures to succeed, eating disorders -- being a teenager seems more difficult with every generation. Confronted daily with demands from parents, teachers, and peers, teens have to have refusal skills and positive attitudes to meet the challenges of life in a world which requires them to grow up before their time. Without patronizing or lecturing, Teen Esteem helps teenagers develop the skills needed to handle stress, peer pressure, substance abuse, anger, sexual expression, more. The third edition includes new material on being different, self-acceptance, cyber-bullying, and coping with depression (in oneself and in others).
