It's easy to dismiss ten - to fifteen - year - olds as moody, baffling creatures. Yet these years are perhaps the most critical time in human development, a juncture at which unmatched physical and intellectual growth, expanding creativity, emerging moral sensibilities, awakening sexuality, and maturing emotions converge. Early adolescence is a time when girls and boys may need the help of parents most - yet it's often a time when they are most reluctant to accept it. And it may be a parent's greatest opportunity to effect positive changes in a child's life. In Our Last Best Shot, we meet twelve girls and boys from all across America. Through their stories, and through Laura Sessions Stepp's extensive research, we gain invaluable advice about how to bring up well - adjusted children in these difficult times. Stepp tells how to spot signs of promise as well as signs of danger, and advises parents about when and how they must intervene. Filled with wisdom and common sense, Our Last Best Shot is a book parents and educators cannot afford to be without.
