This straight forward, delightfully illustrated, fully reproducible handbook gets teenagers to stop and focus for a few minutes at a time on their own development.
Know Yourself! Build Great Relationships! Be a Winner in Life! During the teen years, everything in a young person's life can go off the charts—responsibilities, parental expectations, homework, social distractions, and hormone levels. The need to fit in competes with the desire to stand out. Implausible cockiness masks relentless self-doubt. To be cool, teenagers have to be successful on their own terms, but do they really know what that means? Not often.
This straight forward, delightfully illustrated, fully reproducible handbook gets teenagers to stop and focus FOR a few minutes at a time on their own development. Enjoyable activities ask them to look at who they are, what they want to be (and be like), their dreams, aspirations and interests. It encourages them to take stock of their own "developmental assets," observe other people to find out what works and doesn't work in life, and learn important intrapersonal and interpersonal skills. Activity sheets cover these vital areas:
Knowing Yourself, Counting Your Assets
Understanding Your Emotions
Building Health and Fitness
Being a Great Friend
Setting and Achieving Goals
Getting Involved in the Community
Making Decisions and Solving Problems
