An uplifting and optimistic guide to navigating the ups and downs of teen years and preparing for adulthood.
Author Nicola Morgan is an international expert on teen development and mental health. During her talks to parents of pre-teens, she immediately sensed two overriding emotions: fear and pessimism. Parents were worried about their children becoming teenagers, assuming that it would be a negative experience. Not only is that a sad outlook on the teenage experience–it doesn’t have to be true!
Breezy and compassionate, Positively Teen teaches teens how to approach their adolescent years with optimism and understanding, giving them the skills they need to develop long-term well-being. Full of practical, proven strategies, it includes advice on how to flourish both physically and mentally–from learning to do things you enjoy, to understanding how to look after your diet, exercise and attitude, to understanding your personality. With these strengths and skills in hand, teens will learn to weather any storm and thrive on the challenges of this time in their lives.
Praise for Positively Teen:Kirkus Reviews
"This presentation of growing up through the angle of brain development sends a positive message: Everyone's different, but the upheavals of adolescence are universal. An upbeat, reassuring tool kit for tweens and young teens."
"Teens and tweens will find an abundance of information, tips, and advice that will be vital as they go through their adolescent years. Written with a caring, informative, and positive tone... encompassing topics such as attitudes and thoughts, health, learning techniques, friendships and communication, and stress and worries. The chapters also contain helpful charts and tools to help teens with many aspects of growing up, such as eating healthy, as well as suggested activities, quizzes, and "Positive Boosts," which encourage teens to take small actions and breaks. A useful addition to health and wellness collections."Booklist
