Transition to Adulthood was created to teach young people how to create stability for themselves despite their environment. This book provides a thorough overview of a variety of topics that will aid youth as they navigate the teenage years and begin to establish themselves as an adult. Use this book as a reference guide to facilitate proactive learning and inspire conversation between a young person, their friends, and the adults in their lives.
Do you ever feel unprepared for life in the "real world?" This book talks about things that are critical to survival (how to conduct CPR), things that are quite practical (how to operate a washing machine), and subjects that are uncomfortable (gang involvement). Adolescence is a sensitive time when young people make key decisions regarding their hobbies, friends, education, and future careers while still maintaining their dependence on adults. Having this book at your fingertips will help you get much of the foundational "adult stuff" under your belt so that you can work toward those more complicated life things that you are interested in pursuing… your dreams!
