For Parents and Educators!
Learn to understand kids through their own words.
Jim Tuman receives and answers hundreds of telephone calls and letters each year from teenagers, telling him how he has touched their lives. This book highlights some of those letters, illustrating what kids are going through in these turbulent times. He offers insights and gives action steps to help parents and teachers deal with these issues.
Tuman’s message is inspirational and universal. The Los Angeles Times wrote a story headed “The man who makes teenagers cry” that was accompanied by several photographs of a roomful of high school students clutching each other and weeping.
Jim has recently been featured in the movie “A Girl Like Her” with millions of views world-wide. He did a local TEDxTalk and PBS did a documentary about his life called “The Tuman Effect.”
