As a Mum of a Teenager and a Tween I’m always grateful of any help they can get through these difficult years. I do my best, but sometimes it’s so hard for them to talk about their feelings. Being able to dip into an informative book is the next best thing to Mum.
From how to make friends, and how to deal with peer pressure, to getting along with siblings. This book will give a teenager advice and coping strategies that are easy to read and digest. It also explains the science behind the advice, not in a long winded text book way, but simple and precise with some fabulous diagrams to help understanding.
With it’s 40 chapters covering all the thing a teenager may worry about, it will certainly teach them how to choose to be happy. My girls are already getting stuck in and I’m sure it’s going to be a useful resource for them.
The thoughtful design made it immediately appealing - font, colours doodles all appealed to my daughter and made her willing to give it a go.
We both appreciated the bite size format, with practical suggestions and the 'science bit' backing it up, so the book is easy to dip in and out of. Particularly liked the parts about improving sleep and tackling exams and homework.
Definitely worth the investment to help your kids become happier and more resilient.
A good resource for youth and those who deal with them, with valuable information for all ages.
That said the information in this (short) book is very accessible, the illustrations, text and graphic content are all, I would suggest, well balanced, there is a good use of sub-headings, headings, spacing and text boxes to break it all up and make it readable.
It is also works well, as I think it is intended, as a reference guide, ie you can read sections or parts of sections without having to read the book in its entirety (although I would think that anyone who finds one section of interest is liable to find others of interest too).
As other reviewers have pointed out there are sections of relevance or likely to be of interest as a consequence of being topical content, such as, conscious consumption, if perhaps this attracts readers to pay equal attention to all chapters it could only be a good thing as all the different sorts of perennially important topics are here, peer pressure, anticipating difficulty/crisis and being prepared etc.
This book guides teenagers in building their confidence, eliminate negative feelings and find happiness.
When you become a teenager you go through a difficult time which is quite challenging but it is during this age that you can find a mental wellbeing and happiness. This book helps you to do that giving also some exercises and techniques to practice.
It has very bright colours and also lots of images inside the book to attract the reader making it quite appealing.
I have bought it for my children who are still very young. We know how teenaging is a hard time so I hope they are going to read this nice book as it may help with their struggling adventures as they grow up.
I would have liked to read who the authors were in the book because when I opened it I went to look straight away for information about who the authors were and what their job was but I could not find it. It is only when I read the Amazon description that I acknowledged that.
I wish we did.
We all know that teenagers have a mind of their own and the last thing they want to do is to listen to their parents advise.
This book covers 50 points from mental health via self confidence to healthy diet and electronic devices detox.
Even if some of these points so not reach your teenagers others will. And I like that a but that book.
I do not ask my son to read these books I just leave them laying around conviniently (for example in toilet, where he spends a lot of time 😂)
I like these books as sometimes as a parent it's difficult to put things in words in order for your kids to listen.
My son will be 10 this year and I already let him read it. In my opinion it's better to be prepared before. I wish I was in my teenage years.
Highly recommended to teenagers and tweenies.
It’s good because it has something for everyone- for example for children of divorced parents or suffering from a loss of a loved one. It sets out everything in clear sections and is uses humour well. I liked the family tree idea and the other activities, which cleared my mind well. It talks about peer pressure, social media and those types of things.
Flicking through myself, it looks like an easy to dip in and out of book, nicely laid out and accessible to everyone.
Definitely a good transition from the books aimed at slightly younger children and we felt it would be good for 12 year olds up to about 15/16. It seemed more for girls but is aimed at both.
We recommend this!
