A person builds a life for themselves out of the decisions that they make every day. And just like in constructing an actual building, the foundation of a person's life (the teenage years) is the most important part. But at an age where most people are learning to become adults and adopt their own beliefs and boundaries, it can be tricky to know how to decide almost anything. That's where Teenage Construction Zone can help.
This book distinguishes itself from most modern "ethical resources" by dealing with the issues that most people would consider left up to personal opinion. Most of the time, those are the issues that a young person needs help with. The author is able to circumnavigate the tendency to give unobtrusive and therefore unhelpful answers by basing his logic on something that nearly every teen and parent is willing to consider. How do you make good decisions? By choosing what improves the quality of your life and lives of those around you.
Trey Talley has been helping and speaking to teens around the globe for almost 20 years and provides detailed examples from the lives of real life teens. It provides helpful, relevant, and realistic answers to many of the problems that teenagers actually face.
This isn't the irrelevant and impersonal text book we're talking about. This is a book written by someone who cares for the people who need it most. It reads on a practical level that a teen can understand without making them feel like a child, because the purpose of the book is to respect a person's needs and goals and to help them become the best adult they can possibly be.
Teenage Construction Zone is an excellent resource for school administrators and teachers to provide their students with strong moral guidelines. But it goes beyond that. Parents, grandparents, and teens interested in personal study can take advantage of this collection of priceless advice.
