When I was younger I read Ten Time Bombs: Defusing the Most Explosive Pressures Teenagers Face by Ron Hutchcraft, I recently re-came across this book. Ron takes a number of big issues, ticking time bombs, if you like:
- family relationships
- things that make you angry
- things that make you depressed
- things that make you hurt
- the lonely times
The great thing about this book is it is written in a way that both teenagers, youth workers and parents could access it with. The book now in 2010 comes across as dated both by it’s style and some of its illustrations so it isn’t a book I’d bother to buy now.
