In this book, Gregory Elliott explores the effects of mattering to one′s family on adolescent behavior. He presents evidence that those who feel that they matter to their families are much less likely to engage in anti–social or self–destructive behaviors and suggests how parents, teachers, and any significant others can help instill a sense of mattering in the lives of adolescents in their care. The clear understanding that they matter will help protect young people from the threats to wellbeing that are so prevalent in adolescence and will encourage them to navigate smoothly through these difficult years.
