   While I think most  of the things about being a teenager are the same now as they were when I was a teenager, it’s still a different world that teens are growing up in today.  (And it hasn’t been that long since I was a teenager.)  Teen’s today deal with some serious stuff – school can sometimes feel like a battlefield.

How kids handle the big things that come their way stems from they way they are taught to handle the little things. Chicken Soup for the Soul: Just for Teenagers is aimed at teens to give them support, encouragment and inspiration to handle the big or small.ok

Teenage years are tough, but this book will help teens as they journey through the ups and downs of adolescence. The stories in this book serve as a guide on topics from the daily pressures of life and school to love, friendships, parents, and much more. This collection will encourage, inspire, and amuse teens, showing that, as tough as things can get, they are not alone!

While I don’t think a book is a substitute for parental guidance, the stories in this book can encourage your child to speak up about issues that they are facing at school.

If you have a teen, I would recommend checking this book out!  And you can start by entering to WIN a copy right here!

Youth group at church

Missy September 20, 2011 at 11:15 am

As a teen, I remember going on a church youth group trip to an old castle. We had all sorts of self worth building activities, trust building activities, etc. Well during this trip, we went sled riding. AND I BROKE EVERY TOE AND BONE in my upper left foot. Yep – Had a cast for 10 weeks up to my knee…….Had surgery……….Missed most of the trip……..BUT all my friends visited me at the hospital and signed my cast………This book would be a value to any parent as well as teen to read!!
