For a 25-year-old graduate of the University of Maryland, with a degree in Spanish and linguistics, Elkridge library's teen specialist Amanda Gardner sure seems to know a lot about parenting, teens and life in general. Gardner started a Girls' Club that meets twice a month at the library, providing a relaxed atmosphere in which teens can develop supportive relationships with each other; replacing the competitive ones that are pervasive in their social circles. "I can remember being their age and feeling alienated from the world," said Gardner, "and I can appreciate how healthy and helpful it is to have an adult you can go to, to vent."

Vacations are supposed to be relaxing, not educational," explains Mike Pretekin, a ninth-grader from Englewood, Colo."Give the kids a little freedom," adds Paul Lux, a 13-year-old from St. Louis."Go where there are other kids," chimes in Joey Greenbaum, a seventh-grader from suburban Chicago. "Then you won't have to worry about being with your parents and getting yelled at all the time."
