Resiliency and Teens

Time to get your opinions –

I am working on a new project related to not only GT general, but teens in general. This book will focus on resiliency and give specific insight and strategies for teens. Using the kids-giving-advice-to-kids approach utilized in 101 Success Secrets for Gifted Kids, I hope to cover topics including”

  • motivation
  • bullying
  • Dealing with dual exceptionalities
  • peer relationships
  • life skills
  • perfectionism and other issues that get in the way of completing tasks
What other topics would you like to see? Are you interested in participating in this project?

1 thought on “Resiliency and Teens”

  1. How about differentiating life reality from book or art reality. By that I mean that my teen, who is a fabulous artist, has a hard time refocusing on real life when he creates. He’s never had both feet on the ground, which is typical for many artists/authors/musicians I know. But it scares me to death to think of him graduating this year and moving out. He is extremely intelligent. It’s just a matter of him remembering to focus that intelligence in the right places.

    Just a thought. Looking forward to this new project of yours.
