"Garbarino makes us believe that we can have control over our environments and the kind of society we want for our children. . . . He gives all of us valuable tools for helping kids negotiate through an increasingly complex, high-risk world." (Paul Simon, former U.S. Senator, Illinois)"I am struck by how readily we ignore the very real toxicity of our children's social environment. I am grateful to Jim Garbarino for this A to Z list of ways we can respond more positively." (Anne Cohn Donnelly, executive director, National Committee to Prevent Child Abuse)"Garbarino is one of our nation's major social critics. This insightful analysis is a must-read for parents, early childhood advocates, and policy makers." (Edward Zigler, Sterling Professor of Psychology, Yale University)"Garbarino offers solutions. . . . The message is powerful, research-based, and written for readers from all walks of life. We highly recommend it." (The National Dropout Prevention Newsletter)
