Safe Passage: What Does It Mean?

Show Summary Details

Preview

Parents over the world want assurance that their children will be able to grow into responsible adults who can enter the labor force, become effective parents, and participate in the social and political life of society. That is the primary goal of parents — to ensure Safe Passage for their offspring from infancy through adolescence to adulthood. Safe Passage is not a guaranteed right. It is a privilege. The book aims to spell out in detail all the work needed to turn this privilege into a right. It focuses on programs and practices that foster the healthy development of youth, on interventions that can make a difference in the lives of young people.
