As the world changes faster each day, so do our youth. Cell phones, email, texting, the Internet, and a host of other technologies make today’s kids smarter…and in some ways harder to guide toward good choices. It’s enough to make any adult throw up his or her hands in despair. But with issues of violence, drugs, sex, and so many others that our children and our youth are exposed to on a daily basis, giving up is simply not an option. In Influencing Today’s Youth: Shaping the Behaviors, Expectations, and Aspirations of Tomorrow’s Leaders, author Danita Johnson Hughes, Ph.D., shares powerful principles that will help adults influence today’s youth to rise above adversity, navigate through societal and peer pressure, and make smarter choices in all aspects of life.
