Are You Ready To Be A Grown-Up? A wise person once said "The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence." Because that's the goal of parenting, right? We all want to raise compassionate, independent young adults, who have the courage, confidence and desire to reach their potential. But how do we raise children to be this way: resilient and confident? Self-confidence, for the most part, rises out of a sense of competence - from a feeling that we can do things, big and small. Inside this book you will find 100 LIFE SKILLS that every kid would benefit from learning by the time they're ready to leave home. Why? Because we are raising the future adults of this world. The bottom line is this: we need to equip our kids with the skills they need to survive and prosper in the real world. Eventually they will leave home and we need to do what we can to guarantee their greatest chance of success in life. This book provides information on all the important skills, needed to succeed both inside and outside the home. These skills are not only valuable but achievable because it's never too late to learn something new.

We all have different dreams, that's what makes us unique. But whatever it is that you want to do, the skills you'll need to achieve your goals are the same. This exciting new book helps children and young people to practise these core skills and provides a survival kit for them to dip into when they need extra help or motivation. Some of the themes explored are: goal setting, growth mindset, perseverance, getting organised and learning to fail well. No need to worry if you don't yet know what it is that you are passionate about or what 'success' means for you. Perhaps you just need some help with boosting your confidence, staying positive or some extra help with getting through the twists and turns of everyday life. Looking after yourself is an important theme of the book whether that be eating healthy food and exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, being kind to yourself or knowing how to deal with bullies. To 'be your best self' means loving who you are, feeling confident in your own skin and achieving the things that you want to do.
