Sparks--when illuminated and nurtured--give young people joy, energy, and direction.
In this practical book, Dr. Peter Benson, a leading authority on childhood and adolescence, describes a simple yet powerful plan for awakening the spark that lives inside each and every young person. Sparks have the power to change a young person's life from one of "surviving" to "thriving." Grounded in new research with thousands of teenagers and parents, "Sparks" offers a step-by-step approach to helping teenagers discover their unique gifts, and works for "all" families, no matter their economic status, parenting situation, or ethnic background.
