This Book is FREE!
This book was first published as Can You Relate? in 2000. In 2005 it was re-released as The Teen Survival Guide to Dating and Relating. It went out of print in 2008. That’s the way things go sometimes. Instead of letting all this truly great relationship information vanish forever, I decided to give it away for FREE. No strings attached. So here it is. Everything you need to know about getting along better with yourself and everyone else. This book is for you. It’s a gift. Yours to read wherever you want. Hopefully you’ll think about what you read. See how it applies to situations you’ve already been in. Remember the stuff that makes the most sense to you because you never know when you might need it. And if you’ve got friends who could use help sorting out their feelings, pass it on to them. That’s what friends are for.
Annie Fox, creator of The InSite, invites young people to share their questions and concerns about relationships. She personally answers every email she receives, and her straightforward, savvy advice helps teens create healthier relationships with everyone in their lives—including themselves.
This book brings Terra out of cyberspace and onto the printed page. Based on hundreds of emails Annie has received, it gives readers the scoop on what matters most to them: their feelings, looks, and decisions; boyfriends and girlfriends; sex and sexuality; how to make a relationship work (and what to do when it doesn’t); finding and keeping real friends; handling problems with parents and siblings; dealing with other authority figures (teachers, employers, coaches); and more.
Conflict Resolution Tool Kits provide step-by-step strategies for whatever relationship needs help. “Hey Terra!” letters let readers in on conversations between Annie and visitors to her site. Open-ended questions invite teens to think about Terra’s advice and what it means to them. The tone throughout is upbeat, positive, honest, and respectful—reasons why Annie Fox is the person kids turn to when they need someone to listen.
