Do you know who your child is socializing with outside the home? Are you protecting your child from gang activity through taking positive actions, such as monitoring their activities, fostering close relationships with them, and using positive discipline strategies? Parents play a pivotal role in keeping young people out of gangs.
Most parents think not my child and lack information about gangs. Most gang members tend to be adolescents or young adults, however, recent trends indicate that children are being recruited into gangs at a much earlier age, some when they are in elementary school. Gangs can include people of every gender, race, culture and socioeconomic group.
This book is geared toward parents trying to keep their kids away from gangs, drugs and violence, gang members who are looking for a way out, or readers who just want to learn about gangs and how to keep kids away from gangs, drugs and violence.
