Summary, etc.:
"The 21st century guidebook of life safety skills for teens, their parents, and other caregivers, covering physical safety, sexual consent, social media, your rights with the police, situational awareness, dating violence, smartphones, and more. Young people coming of age today face new risks, expectations, and laws that didn't exist when their parents were young. What They Don't Teach Teens provides teens, tweens, and young adults with up-to-date, realistic strategies to protect themselves against the pitfalls of modern adolescence. Author Jonathan Cristall, once a troubled teen himself and now a veteran prosecutor for the City of Los Angeles, works extensively with teenagers and their families to teach physical, digital, emotional, and legal safety skills. Drawing on Cristall's hands-on experience, What They Don't Teach Teens gives parents and other caregivers techniques for talking to their children about these urgent issues. What They Don't Teach Teens gives sound advice on police interactions and personal safety (your constitutional rights, what to do/not do when stopped by the police while driving, situational awareness, street robberies, gun violence); sexual violence and misconduct (sexual consent, sexual harassment prevention, dating violence, sextortion); and staying safer online (digital footprint and citizenship, cyberbullying, underage sexting, online porn). A must-read for all families, What They Don't Teach Teens is filled with practical guidance, thoughtful insight, and simple-to-use tips and tactics that will empower teens and others to make good choices now and in the future"-- Provided by publisher.

What They Don't Teach Teens : Life Safety Skills for Teens and the Adults Who Care for Them

Library Journal

A veteran prosecutor and youth safety counselor, Cristall is uniquely qualified to write a book about keeping teens out of trouble. Cristall starts with the assertion that teens need to find safe people to help them no matter what situation they face, and gives advice to parents on how they can fulfill this role in their adolescent's life. The crucial legal topics are personal safety, dealing with police, sexual assault and consent, harassment, sextortion, teen dating violence, digital footprint and citizenship, data privacy, cyberbullying, and smartphone cameras. The end of each chapter contains a space for students to journal takeaways, bullet-list summaries, and take a "What Would You Do If It Happened to You?" quiz. VERDICT Easy to read and comprehensive on topics of safety, Cristall's volume is an informative read for teens and their parents, but may also prove to be a helpful text for a high-school level health class
