Has anyone ever asked you, “what advice would you give your younger self about life”? If you are like me, you could think of many things you might like to do over if you have the chance. That is why I found the book “Critical Life Skills for Teens: Simple Steps to Build Self-Confidence, Eliminate Procrastination, Laugh at Peer Pressure, Stop Negative Self-Talk and Make the Best Decisions for Your Future” by a LinkedIn Colleague, D. Jo Googin, so interesting.
This book is a must-read book for teenage/young adults, both boys or girls. It is easy to read with practical examples of how to handle the many issues that come up in life. Some of the topics I found interesting include:
- How to be True to Yourself
- Peer Pressure, what it is, and how to handle it.
- Causes of self-esteem issues and how to improve.
- Understanding your emotions
- Negative Self-Talk
- Deciding what you stand for
- Money Matters
- Time Management
- Don’t Put Up with Toxic People and Their Behaviors
- Relationship Rules
- Decision-Making is Crucial
- Car Maintenance
- Be A Good Roommate
- Self-love Isn’t Selfish
The author writes in an empowering tone and gives advice we all could/can use. The book is a good read for teens/young adults, parents, teachers, and others who interact with kids. It will help give you tips on how to address issues that impact their lives and tips to respond to challenges THEY will and and provide some sound advice on how to handle these challenges.
This book is an excellent idea for a gift for graduation from grade school, high school, and college. You can get this book on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Critical-Life-Skills-Teens-Self-Confidence/dp/B0BW23BV9S
