Do you have zero control over your life? What are your frustrations? Do you lead a lazy lifestyle? To help teens take charge of their lives, Jay McGraw has created a companion workbook to his bestselling Life Strategies for Teens. The workbook is based on 10 "Life Laws" (adapted from his father Phillip C. McGraw's tenets), and is designed to help teens "see your life clearly, to understand what the problems are, what you need to fix, change, get rid of, etc." He encourages readers to put their thoughts, ideas, and dreams into writing to help them through the process. (The workbook is meant to be written in.) He demands that his readers ask themselves hard questions about missed opportunities, perceptions, self-sabotage, and personal shortcomings so they can figure out what's not working and fix it. Why? So that they can turn dreams into goals--with specific timelines and strategies. Here you'll find a variety of quizzes, activities, and questions to help teens answer the question "Who am I?" For example, McGraw asks readers to list 10 times they've dropped the ball--and why. Or, conversely, to list their 15 best achievements to date. The workbook also contains questions designed to challenge assumptions, such as "What are things you automatically, reactively feel and believe about members of the opposite sex/teachers/parents?" A hardcore guide to removing obstacles from our lives, Life Strategies for Teens Workbook has all the compassion of a drill sergeant... one who knows what's good for you. (Ages 13 and older)

Please realize that the basic book that this workbook relates to is Life Strategies for Teens.... Without that book, this workbook will lose much of its ability to be helpful. My suggestion is that adults or teens read Life Strategies for Teens first. If you like that book, then get this workbook as well.
If you are buying Life Strategies for Teens as a gift for a teenager, I suggest that you also give the workbook at the same time. The workbook provides lots of questions, ways to develop ideas, and helpful projects that are designed to be done between reading fairly small segments of Life Strategies for Teens.
The workbook starts with �A Quick Self-Check� of 12 revealing questions. You go on to write the story of your life. From there, you list stupid decisions, and consider what directed dreaming inspires you to think about. You self-examine which behaviors are working and not working for you. To help you �get it� another section focuses you on models, skills you need, relationships, learning about other people, and breaking patterns that don�t work well for you.
The fun really begins when you list experiences you would like to have, and begin tracking when you have those experiences. You go on to learn more about what you stand for, reward yourself for doing what needs to be done, and change the way you think about and talk to yourself.
Diving deeper, you will consider how your beliefs may be making you blind to opportunities.
When you are ready, you will start making some important life decisions. There�s plenty of help for improving relationships, if that�s part of what�s needed.
Having developed that sense of focus, you go on to create your first life plan.
. . . And then the excitement really begins! You�re on your way!

I am using this book and workbook to work with at-risk boys. What is amazing, though, is that the tools are useful for people of ALL ages! It's book provides a great framework for lessons that do not have to be used word for word. I'm currently using this book in conjunction with work by Dr. Brené Brown. Good stuff!

I use this book in my counseling practice with teens and it is a great way to help them solidify who they are and what is important to them as peer pressure sets in which could make them question that. They can go back and read what they wrote to remind them to stay on course.

I read this book my freshman year of high school. A time in most young peoples lives when they feel the need to be "cool". Long story short, this book used stories of Jay's wether fictional or not; none the least, they helped relay important lessons. Lessons that taught me you can be a leader, not a follower and be cool. This book helps stear people away from all the peer pressures high school can have. I am a police officer now and I accredit my point of view and outlook on things to this book. The object is getting a youngster to read it. If I could afford to do so, I'd keep a few copies in the trunk of my squad car to pass out to those kids who I think would recieve the message this book offers. Very good book, written in a easy to read language and relative to youngsters.

This book was very user friendly. It broke down the subject into easily digestible and relatable parts for teens. I recommend it for any teens trying to figure out their path in life. If the teen is not motivated, they may need some support from a caring adult guide.

Great! I use this with the teens I work with in psychotherapy. It helps with teens who need direction and finding their values in life.
