A competitive streak can be the driving force behind excellence in school, sports, and other pursuits. Some young people take competition too far, however, or fear competition and avoid it at all costs.

Competition looks at ways young people can harness the competitive spirit to accomplish their goals while managing conflicts that can grow out of challenges, rivalry, and other forms of competition.

  • Competition 101 explains the difference between friendly and unfriendly competition
  • Letters to the “Competition Counsellor” show you real-life examples of competition
  • Quizzes test your ability to handle the negative side of competition
  • A resource guide puts more helpful organizations, books, and web sites at your fingertips
The Deal With It series helps adolescents cope with conflicts in everyday life and aims to promote peaceful homes, schools and communities.

Mireille Messier is a bilingual magazine and television writer who has written extensively for and about children, teens, and parents.

Attractively illustrated, this book is intended for ages 10+.
