Amy Morin, author of the best selling, 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do, has shifted gears to help tweens in the always tough growing up years. A chapter is dedicated to each idea and begins with a story of a boy or girl approaching problems in their life in an ineffective way. They then discover a better path to become mentally strong.
It’s a well done set-up sure to help any emerging teenager. In fact I would have loved to have had this book back in my growing up years. It would have saved me a lot of heartache and confusion.
Also included in each chapter is a short quiz to help readers learn more about themselves. Next comes a deeper look at how to learn the things strong kids do. There’s proof of how it works in real life and exercises that will help change your approach: THINK BIG, Feel GOOD, ACT BRAVE.
You might be wondering just what are the 13 THINGS STRONG KIDS DO? Here they are:
- They Stop Feeling Sorry for Themselves
- They Empower Themselves
- They Adapt to Change
- They Focus on Things They Have Control Over
- They Know When to Say No
- They Take Calculated Risks
- They Create Their Future
- They Own Their Own Mistakes
- They Celebrate Other People’s Successes
- They Fail and Try Again
- They Balance Social Time with Alone Time
- They Are Thankful for What They Have
- They Persist
Change for any tween is possible with support. Now you will need your own copy of the book to make these things happen. A great gift for the child in your life. The techniques provided here would also be a helpful semester class for 4th-6th grade kids.
