Author: Gloria Franklin 


Finally, a book for teens and their parents to enjoy.

Life just became a little less difficult!

This book tackles a host of issues for the toughest crowd yet: Generations X, Y, and Z. Gloria Franklin draws on her experience as teen pageant director and youth motivator to provide a common-sense approach to things every teen needs to know:

- basic manners and common courtesy
- what to wear and when, what not to wear and why!
- the dos and don'ts in private and public places
- how to act in most social and formal settings
- how to handle situations with family, friends, or total strangers

and subjects that adults are sometimes afraid to tackle:

- matters of disrespect
- sagging pants and micro skirts
- tattoos and boldly colored hair
- cell phone usage and loud music
- personal hygiene and professional hygiene
- being a lady, gentleman, or a barbarian


Topics covered in this book can be used as a quick reference guide for schools, churches, youth groups, and more.


Gloria Franklin resides in Chicago and is working on her next book which will address even more matters of etiquette and how teens can successfully manage in a business setting.
