Why do some children excel and some struggle? Why are some children who face many of life's greatest adversities able to overcome great risks and experience success and others do not? Author Rick Miller has spent 45 years educating, advocating, caring for, and supporting the futures of all youth.
He has dedicated his professional life to disproving the claim that all children are "at risk". He believes all children are, in fact, "at hope". This book explores this breadth of understanding from a research, academic, and practitioner's perspective and translates complicated theory into straightforward and powerful expressions about what is best for today's youth. Youth Development discusses universal truths and tools that children need to not only survive but thrive at home and in school. The author has created a culture of embracing children "at hope", where every child is capable of success, no exceptions!
