May is Teen Self-Esteem Month and what a perfect time of year to celebrate the accomplishments of our young adults as they finish out the school year, graduate, prepare for college, find a summer job, etc. Never have teens faced more stress in their lives as they do right now, so it is important that we take a moment to recognize their efforts as well as celebrate their successes. Everyone enjoys hearing positive feedback, including our YA’s, so please remember to take a moment and hug your teens! Although they may act as though receiving your attention is the last thing on their wish lists, know that the opposite probably holds true.
Take a look at our spring issue of BTW (By the Way…), the library’s online young adult newsletter for current information about teen depression and suicide, including book suggestions (both fiction and nonfiction) as well as other key resources.
