Raising Resilient Teenagers

A Parents Guide to Teenage Self-Esteem & Resilience

Today's teenagers are increasingly unable to cope with life's challenges and are struggling with poor self image and low confidence as a result.

 Unfortunately many parents who are confused and anxious about how to help their teen, some even unknowingly adopt parenting strategies that make things worse rather than better.

Raising Resilient Teenagers is written to take the anxiety out of parenting teens who struggle with self-esteem and resilience.  Discover how you can start improving your teenager's self-esteem and  give them the resilience to bounce back from whatever life throws at them.





If you're the parent of a teenager who has low self-esteem, struggles to socialise, lacks confidence, or fails to cope well with disappointment, you know how frustrating and hopeless it can feel. You've tried everything; praising them, offering rewards (bribery), trying the gently-gently approach followed by the stern tough love approach, giving them some space, micro managing, but nothing you try seems to work.
It can be exhausting  worrying about what will become of your teenager every time you look at him or her. The endless frustration of watching them fall short of their potential, can leave you at your wits end. Perhaps, like many parents, you have given up and  just hope your teenager will grow out of it.
Trying to instill self-belief and motivate a reluctant teen can leave even the most driven and optimistic parent feeling helpless and despairing of their child's future.
Poor self-esteem and low levels of resilience are increasingly common in today's teenagers. Teens who struggle with self-esteem and resilience have an increased likelihood of making harmful choices, are more susceptible to negative peer influences, and exhibit a greater tendency to lash out when things don't go as they would like.
No parent intends for their teenager to suffer from a negative self image or poor coping skills, and most try to intervene but just don't know how to turn their teen's attitude and outlook around. If you are one of those parents who wants to help your teen, but not sure how to go about it, then Raising Resilient Teenagers could be just what you need.












Raising Resilient  Teenagers is written specifically to give parents the knowledge and skills required to improve their teenager's self-esteem and resilience.  Instead of  living with the frustration and anxiety, learn what you can do to boost your teenagers confidence and resolve.
Unfortunately too many parents live with the misconception that there is nothing they can do, or they think the only alternative is expensive specialist intervention from psychologists or doctors. Nothing could be further from the truth. As a parent you have more impact on your child’s self-esteem and resilience than anybody else.
With the right information and skills any parent can affect a positive change in how their kids see themselves and the world. Imagine looking at your teenager and feeling excited for them and not worried about them. Or seeing your teen pick themselves up and get on with life after a setback instead of  hiding from the world.
That is why Raising Resilient Teenagers was written, to help parents improve their teenager’s life.  You don’t need any special qualification or life experience. You just need to be committed to your teenager and willing to implement what you learn.
Maybe you’ve heard self-esteem is very complex to understand and therefore believe there is little you can do. Indeed self-esteem is a very complex subject, and volumes have been written on it, but knowing how parents influence and shape their kids esteem is well established.  Raising Resilient Teenagers breaks down the essential information and explains in simple language how parents can help their teens gain a healthy and accurate view of who they are and what they can do.
Ever wonder why some kids seem to be able to handle anything, while others go pieces at the slightest challenge? It isn’t genetics, or luck. Resilience is the combination of acquired characteristics, all of which can be learned. Raising Resilient Teenagers shows you what your teenager needs, and leads you step by step through how to assist your teen develop a truly resilient character.
You don’t have to keep watching on helplessly as your teenager misses out on some of the best years of their life. You can take action today and start to see your teenager thrive.
