Just about everyone knows a 15- or 16-year-old in need of guidance, but perhaps feels powerless in being able to do or say anything
Longwood, FL (Vocus) July 17, 2010
Without preparation, many tenth grade girls will be unprepared for their final years of high school and will be left feeling dazed, confused, and wondering what just happened. Author Savannah Taylor’s 10 Things Every 10th-Grade Girl Should Know ($15.99, paperback, 978-1-60957-217-4) discusses the top ten things that affect the lives of young women ages 15-17 from a biblical perspective without hiding behind political correctness. It provides real talk to teen girls at the most critical stage of their lives regarding the top ten issues they will face during this season.
“Just about everyone knows a 15- or 16-year-old in need of guidance, but perhaps feels powerless in being able to do or say anything,” the author says. “10 Things Every 10th-Grade Girl Should Know is a tool that puts power into the hands of concerned loved ones. It also empowers teens who are earnestly seeking direction in a generation filled with mixed messages.”
Armed with a master’s degree in social work, Taylor has been working as a social worker for the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) for several years. And, she says, “I have noticed a pattern with regards to the many cases that plague our society. When interviewing clients, many women recall making wrong choices and going down the wrong path around age sixteen, which is a critical transitioning time between childhood and adulthood.” As a result, DCFS begins preparing 16-year-olds with an Independent Living Plan (ILP). “This book can be considered an ILP for 16-year-olds across the nation,” she adds.
