Tonight Is Too Late
Parents, all the possible sins your children are committing, behind your back, are right here in this conveniently packaged single volume. Purtell advocates open and honest communication with pre-teens about the consequences of drugs, premarital sex, and disease. Not too bad, especially for the time period. There are examples and quotes from law enforcement about their frustrations with the parents of young people that they are not stepping up to monitor their own children. Overall, Purtell is telling parents to wake up and smell the coffee about their precious child.
Evidently, time hasn’t changed much.
Drugs and Anger
Submitter: Extremely unpopular and cringe-worthy to read, ‘Drugs and Anger’ has it all. Featuring an abundance of stock photos and the youth of yesterday, this book is unwanted in our library. I cannot imagine anyone signing out this book, and they haven’t! For at least NINE YEARS. The red-tinted portrait [on the cover] is amazing. Take a look at these [pictures below].
Holly: There are so many weird “just say no” books out there. They all seem to have weird stock photos and the worst possible choice right on the cover. Are kids scared straight anymore?
