Rules are all around us — at school, at home, at the mall, on the soccer field, and even on the street. From the strictest of laws to good manners, formal policies to unspoken customs, everywhere you look there are limits and guidelines to your conduct.

For many young people, following all those rules may seem impossible! Some kids may not see the harm in breaking a rule, but Misconduct explains how it always pays to stop and think. Every citizen must decide if they are going to follow a rule or face the consequences of breaking it. This book demonstrates that young people always have the power to make thoughtful choices, even when a rule seems overly strict or unfair.

  • Misconduct 101 explains how conflict gets started and how it can escalate
  • Letters to the “Conflict Counsellor” show you how to manage in difficult situations
  • Quizzes test your ability to steer clear of arguments
  • A resource guide puts helpful organizations, books and web sites at your fingertips
The Deal With It series helps young adolescents cope with conflicts in everyday life and aims to promote peaceful homes, schools and communities.

Author Anne Marie Aikins has written extensively about social justice issues for a variety of publications for both children and adults, and the Deal With It series.

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