Books for Teens During The Quarantine

Personal-development, personal-growth, positive-psychology, self-guided improvement….You’ve probably heard of at least one of these terms, but what exactly do they mean, and why are these things especially important for teens?

For starters, the phrase personal development is all about two things: becoming a better version of yourself (not necessarily on the outside, but on the inside) and staying true to yourself. Personal development involves improving your habits, your outlook, your character and your life skills. It also involves discovering your interests and learning more about yourself.

Personal development covers a wide range of topics, including;

1. Discovering your strengths and talents

2. Improving your skills and daily habits

3. Building self-confidence and character

4. Healthy self-esteem

5. Goal setting and values clarification

6. Getting to know yourself better and figuring out why you do the things you do

7. Developing important life skills like: decision-making, problem-solving, time-management, emotional regulation, relationship-building, peer-pressure refusal skills, good citizenship and emotional intelligence

Personal development involves developing the type of skills that you need to succeed in life but you often don’t learn these skills school alongside your academics. But being a well-rounded person is more than academics.

There’s no question that in today’s times, the teenage years are filled with lots of choices and challenges …and now lots of uncertainty. Plus, there are so many physical, mental and emotional changes that are happening on a variety of levels. As a teenager, your brain is changing, your hormones are running wild, then add to the mix peer pressure and social media pressures and you’ve got a lot to navigate through on a daily basis. 

That's why Cassandra Mack has written personal development books for teens – to provide teens with tips, tools and tactics to learn about important skills that teens will need now and for the rest of their lives.
