Description

A brand new series to help adolescents cope with conflicts in everyday life and promote peaceful homes, schools, and communities.

The entertainment media is built on it, school hallways are full of it, but is gossip ever really acceptable? When does talking about others cross the line from thoughtful concern to harmful activity?
Gossip: Deal with it before word gets around looks at the damage gossip can cause to both its object and its perpetrators, ways to cope when a rumour is making the rounds, and what young people can do when the urge to participate in gossip feels irresistible. [Fry Reading Level 6.7
