Now in paperback!

"Garbarino makes us believe that we can have control over our environments and the kind of society we want for our children. . . . He gives all of us valuable tools for helping kids negotiate through an increasingly complex, high-risk world."

--Paul Simon, former U.S. Senator, Illinois

"I am struck by how readily we ignore the very real toxicity of our children's social environment. I am grateful to Jim Garbarino for this A to Z list of ways we can respond more positively."

--Anne Cohn Donnelly, executive director, National Committee to Prevent Child Abuse

"Garbarino is one of our nation's major social critics. This insightful analysis is a must-read for parents, early childhood advocates, and policy makers."

--Edward Zigler, Sterling Professor of Psychology, Yale University

Childhood has become a minefield of risks--dangerous to the health and well being of children and adolescents. School violence, drugs, AIDS, poverty, uncaring communities, abusive families, and custody battles are just some of the dangers that children face daily. In this timely book, renowned child development expert James Garbarino explains how we can make choices and decisions that strengthen children and strike a blow against the social toxicity that surrounds us.

From the Back Cover:

For children, the mere act of living in our society is dangerous. Drugs, guns, AIDS, divorce, poverty, and violence are constantly damaging their lives. Their mental as well as physical health and well-being are in jeopardy.
Author James Garbarino, whose thirty-year career has focused on the effects of violence and abuse on child development, draws attention to these dangers and explains how to strengthen children, families, and communities so that they can resist these toxic influences. His book is designed to help parents, policymakers, professionals, religious leaders, and concerned citizens throughout the country work together to detoxify the social environment.
Garbarino suggests specific actions that individuals, families, schools, and communities can take to help our most vulnerable kids. Drawing on psychological and social research findings, he explores the trends toward economic polarization, desensitization to violence, large depersonalizing schools, and the nastiness of popular culture. And he illuminates his data with narrative accounts of these issues as they are played out in the lives of real children and youth--helping us understand what we can do to take an impassioned stance against encroaching violence and social decay.

About the Author:

JAMES GARBARINO is a father and stepfather of teenage children and is codirector of the Family Life Development Center and professor of human development at Cornell University. He is also the author of seventeen books, including Children in Danger and What Children Can Tell Us.
