A Road Map to life-long Happiness for Your Teen or Young Adult
How often have you thought, “They just don’t teach kids what they need to become happy, healthy adults?”
Here’s what one reviewer said about “Social Skills Teens Need to Survive High School.”
I thoroughly enjoyed this read and think it is highly needed tool for teenagers. I’ve been a recruiter for 25 years and have many teenagers navigate through various issues, situations, etc. many of the skills outlined in this book are no longer taught in schools as they were when I went to school. And then add how social media has impacted teenagers and their various communication skills – this books timing is perfect.
Don’t Let Your Teen be The Kid in the Corner
Technology is great! It’s connecting people in ways we never thought possible. But it’s also taking a toll on the social skills of children and young adults.
What happens when your teen leaves the small comfy confines of elementary and middle school? They’re tossed into the deep end with sharks that surround, thrash, and nip at their self-esteem.
If your teen is to have any chance of graduating high school in one piece, they must develop their social skills
Learn what good life skills can do for your teen, and what a happy teen looks like.
I am a teacher and know how much our students need social skills. There are so many teens that do not understand social norms and need them to be taught. I love how this book helps build assertiveness and confidence.
With guidance and new assertiveness skills, your teen becomes the CEO of their life.
- boost self confidence
- feel empowered
- recognize and efficiently manage emotions
- get deserved respect
- improve communication skills
- better problem solving
- strong healthy relationships
- pride in self and performance
I wish I had this book when I was in highschool.
It reads in a way to get kids interested in learning!
I myself am taking things away from this book for my own social awkwardness!
As a parent I really appreciate the way this book explains in easily understandable for teens and parents alike!
So any parent that needs something to help their teen adapt to highschool, this is the book for you! And this amazing author has written a workbook that goes along with this book, I suggest that you give that one a try as well!!
Social Skills Teens Need To Survive High School Is About More than Just Changing Lives through Assertiveness
In its carefully researched pages, it covers all the social skills your teen needs, including:
- How to set and respect boundaries
- Learn self value
- Uncover strengths and weaknesses
- Build confidence from knowing who they are
- Body language-non verbal communication
This book is extremely insightful. As a mother to a preteen, I see all of these issues regularly. Teenagers can have a lot of trouble communicating their needs without blowing up, and this book gives some very good tips and strategies for them. I love that there was a chapter that put a focus on how to talk to teachers as well as their peers. Something I really loved was that the author laid out several scenarios in many of the chapters that lay out different situations and how a teen should handle them in an effective, communicative way. Not only scenarios, but the author relayed specific wording that would relay what the teenager would like and an effective way to communicate that. Very strategic, useful information. I would highly recommend this to both teenagers and parents of teenagers.
