Saying No Is Not Enough -Op/31

Robert Schwebel, Author Newmarket Press $18.95 (239p) ISBN 978-1-55704-041-1
``Preventing drug abuse by empowering children to think clearly and make wise decisions'' is the aim of this practical manual for parents. Schwebel, former director of a drug prevention program in Arizona, urges that parents take the initiative early on to strengthen their children by teaching problem-solving skills and by encouraging self-esteem and assertiveness. With transcriptions of actual conversations, supplemented by suggested ones, Schwebel illustrates practices by which parents and children through the adolescent years may have positive exchanges based on unconditional love. The book is a supportive compendium of techniques for healthy family living, a worthwhile resource for rearing drug-free children. (Oct.)
