How can we cope in a world filled with pollution, poverty, and violence? In our media-centric society, this is a question that kids come face-to-face with at increasingly young ages. And ever since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on America, our personal safety has never felt more in danger.
With their unique combination of sensitivity, insight, and humor drawn from their years of counseling experience as clerics, nationally known commentators Rabbi Marc Gellman and Monsignor Thomas Hartman address such front-page tragedies as hate crimes, terrorism, school and sports violence, and substance abuse. After exploring some of the complex factors that lead such tragedies to happen, each chapter addresses what small but important steps might be taken in order to prevent them from happening again. And although some "bad stuff" is unavoidable, they invite readers to discover how simple acts of comfort can make a big difference.
This essential handbook for today's modern youth will help kids and parents deal with confusing, troubling, or scary events, while showing them how to take part in repairing the broken world around them.
