Raising a Mentally Fit Generation: Science-based tools and strategies to build resilience and wellbeing in our kids Kindle Edition
Do you ever worry about the escalating mental health crisis facing our kids today, and silently hope your child does not end up as part of those statistics?
Do you want to teach your kids the habits, skills and mindsets that lay the foundation for positive mental health and wellbeing?
Have you ever wished there was a way to build strong protective fences at the top of the cliff, so you don't have to be the ambulance picking up the pieces at the bottom?
The way to build these robust fences is by developing your children's mental fitness.
Just like we can help children develop their physical fitness, we can also help them build their mental fitness muscles. Raising a Mentally Fit Generation is backed by cutting-edge research and filled with commonsense tips, powerful strategies and practical tools that have worked with children of all ages. Inside you'll discover how to:
- teach children optimism skills that can help combat depression
- discover and nurture children's strengths and talents
- raise kind, compassionate kids who have empathy for others
- help kids understand the advantages of failing
- plant the seeds of resilience in early childhood.
Every parent's deepest wish is for their child to be happy and have positive mental health and wellbeing. Raising a Mentally Fit Generation is an invaluable resource that parents and educators can use to prevent problems occurring rather than picking our children up after things have gone wrong.
"Raising a mentally fit generation is everyone's responsibility. We need to do things differently and help young people become and stay mentally fit. This work gives us tools to help young people build mental fitness muscles and develop seven key habits. Kari has distilled the science into ten components and brought this to you in a very readable and memorable way. Parents, schools and young people need to read this, discuss it and share it."
Professor Lindsay G. Oades, Director Centre for Positive Psychology, The University of Melbourne
"The perfect combination of theory and practice! What every parent needs - no judgment, practical ideas, and a way forward. Raising a Mentally Fit Generation will be relevant twenty years from now as it captures how to equip our young people with the skills they need to be emotionally fit now and in the future. An outstanding read!"
Roxanne Smith, Deputy Principal, and mum of two beautiful girls
"Ask any parent what they want for their kids and they'll say something like ... happiness and success; but what many really mean is that they want their children to be resilient and able to cope with life's ups and downs. In this book Kari draws on the research and presents practical advice for how parents can help their children foster and develop the crucial skills required for this; and she does it in a way that's easy to read and easy to apply."
Dr Timothy Sharp, Chief Happiness Officer - The Happiness Institute
