Nine Ways to Empower Tweens #LIFESKILLS is a self-help book for tweens. Fraternal twins Emma and Elliot teach tweens practical life strategies that they’ve learned from their parents and teachers.
These life skills include how to have more confidence when presenting in class, the importance of work ethic, a simple writing technique to help deal with anger, and more. There are exercises at the end of each chapter that tweens can use to integrate what they’ve learned.
Engagingly written and well-designed, NINE WAYS TO EMPOWER TWEENS #LIFESKILLS by Kathleen Boucher should be required reading for teenagers and even older readers interested in building personal strength, developing a positive mind-set and achieving goals throughout their lives.– Andrea Karen Hammer for IndieReader
Chapter 4: How to Defuse Anger and Frustration
Activity: Problem solving to get rid of bad feelings
“In this chapter, Elliot and I are going to teach you a useful technique for how you can banish feelings of despair, anger and frustration. This is a technique you can use for the rest of your life. But before we teach you this new technique, we want to tell you the story of Eleanor Roosevelt.” “She married the thirty-second president, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and became the longest-serving First Lady of the United States.”
“One of our favourite quotes of hers is:
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
Elliot and I love this quote, because it reminds us that it is our choice whether we allow ourselves to feel bad over comments or texts or emails or anything that is said to us. Think about this. You have the power of choice. You decide whether you permit someone else to make you feel bad! Isn’t that great?”
