Gangs Deal With It
Deal with it before wrong seems right
One of the best approaches to keeping kids away from gangs is to inform them about the realities of gang involvement before they are offered the choice.
This book in the Deal With It series is designed to connect with any reader, whether they're already involved with a gang, considering join ing a gang, or have witnessed gang activity in their neighbourhood. Quizzes, comics, and graphic novel-style illustration help make this an engaging and accessible way to approach a difficult-to-address problem.
Gangs: Deal with it before wrong seems right uses real-life situations based on the author's experience as an at-risk youth counsellor to show tweens:
- common myths about gangs
- how to avoid being pushed or pulled into gang life
- how to get out
- where to go for help
