The BookViral Review:
Kathleen Boucher builds on her previous success with her new confidence-building journal ‘Nine Ways to Empower Tweens #lifeskills’. Following on from her previous award-winning books for younger children, Boucher gives accessible and motivational advice on continuing the journey of life towards positivity and success.
Written expertly from the perspective of fraternal twins Elliot and Emma, young readers are coached through some of the most challenging issues they will face as they grow, and supported towards developing crucial life skills for adulthood.
From speaking confidently to positive thinking, Boucher uses research-based principles from accepted interventions such as promoting a growth mindset and CBT to help young people negotiate their way to self-efficacy, take on responsibility, and become independent in both their personal and educational lives.
Each chapter includes motivational quotes, encouraging determination and a positive outlook towards perceived failure, problems and ill-treatment from others, with strategies to use them as a way to learn and mature.
Interspersed between advice gleaned from experience and lessons from both parents and teachers are exercises which allow the young reader to apply these suggestions to their own life. Invaluable tips for creating personalised resources and reminders support youths through the challenging journey of growing up and inevitable teen problems. Each page is thoughtfully illustrated to engage and direct the reader to important content.
With mental health issues becoming more and more prevalent within the youth community, and the world increasingly difficult to negotiate, this refreshingly constructive and practical journal serves as a troubleshooting textbook to be dipped into over and over again, particularly for specific issues and barriers to growth and positivity.
‘Nine Ways to Empower Tweens #lifeskills’, however, is not just a book for the young. A great publication for parents and teachers alike, its advice can be interwoven through life and in lessons, enabling them to give practical mental and emotional assistance to support the growing confidence of their charges.
‘Nine Ways to Empower Tweens #lifeskills’ is unreservedly recommended for all whose lives touch ‘tweens’.
