Catholic Parent Know-How: Peer Pressure by Woodeene Koenig-Bricker is an 8 page booklet published by Our Sunday Visitor. It focuses on helping parents understand effective ways to communicate with their teens and what parents can do to minimize the influence of negative peer pressure on their children.
As someone who reads books on raising children, I did not find much new material in here. But I realize that there are many, many parents who do not have the time or the inclination to do that sort of research. Considering its small size, I think the pamphlet packs in quite a bit of useful suggestions and information and would be very helpful to a generic group of Catholic parents.
It is a fairly inexpensive booklet – less than $2. I imagine the majority of sales would be to churches and schools which would then pass them out to parents or have them available in a literature rack in a hallway. I do recommend them for parents of teens and pre-teens (middle and high school students). This would be the sort of literature that could go home with CCD or parochial students at the beginning of the school year.
