Contents About verbal abuse -- Where verbal abuse shows up -- What can we do about it?
Summary Ask teens and they'll confirm it--verbal abuse is a "fact of teen life." Evans explores how verbal abuse affects parents, teachers, peers, and the abusers themselves. She also reveals how teens become verbal abusers and how this verbal poison can spread into every aspect of teen life. Evans shows how important it is to detect this hurtful behavior early on, and how to deal with and end this escalating epidemic in America before painful words and ugly talk ruin young lives.
