I purchased this book for my teen son to practice building new habits to replace his gaming addiction. It is full of very helpful suggestions and he incorporates them into his daily life.
Great book for teens!
I wasn't happy with this purchase.
My daughter (who rarely reads) thought this was an interesting read. While as a teenager, she didn't complete agree with everything (typical teen) she found it helpful and even shared bits and pieces with friends. While it felt at times to be written a bit above a teen's level of reading and understanding, I read it with her and helped break certain things down.
Definitely a recommended book for families with teen and pre-teens.
This "Mini Habits for Teens: Small Changes to Help You Navigate Life's ChallengesMini Habits for Teens: Small Changes to Help You Navigate Life's Challenges" is a great book for teens and teaches them a lot! My daughter loved reading this book and learning all about her habits and things she could do to improve them. Highly recommend!
I’m bought these for a boy and a girl for their birthdays. They enjoyed them.
This is a very meaningful book, which tells us that developing good habits is beneficial to everyone's life. It covers time management, emotional management, stress management, confidence building, conflict resolution and more. I ask my son to read this book carefully, I believe it will have a positive effect on his future.
I thought the level of language was too high for a teen to comprehend and then apply to use. It needs to be more simplified. It was written and designed very plainly too, and doesn't really draw you in.
This book infringes on the trademark of Stephen Guise, creator of Mini Habits. The author and her publisher, Callisto Media, should be ashamed! Don't support bad actors by purchasing this book.
I think this is a fantastic book. It is like a self-help book touching on social emotional learning topics and some other topics such as reading body language and how to have clear communication with people through social conversation and conflict resolution ideas. There are tips about how teens can to prioritize their tasks for time management so they can focus on what’s most important, including school success. There’s just a lot of good advice here written in a way that I think makes it approachable to teens. It is written with a professional tone with professional language. The author is a life coach working with youth in Australia. Rating five stars = love it.
This is a great book! I got it for my 14 year old daughter. She read it very quickly and loved it! It has been really helpful for her in creating better habits and learning how to be more productive! She recommends it!
I got this book with my teen and tween in mind, but as I started browsing it, I was struck by how many of the mini-habits I needed to work on myself. I'm getting my own copy! The first section is about people skills and confidence. Each section has an overview of the focus area followed by mini-habits with specific directions to do every day in order to make it a habit. So in the first section, all of the mini-habits build people skills and confidence. Usually, the author will mention how or why the mini-habit contributes to the big focus area, but it doesn't really matter. Any of the mini-habits will result in positive change in your life if pursued. For example, mini-habit #1 is called "flip the question." Here's the gist: when you think "does this person like me?" catch yourself in that moment and flip the question to "What do I like about that person?" It's a bit circuitous how it works, but it does. The beauty is that you don't really have to know or think much about why. You just establish the habit and the results in terms of people skills and confidence are achieved. What the author says is that we get anxious when we start fixating on whether someone likes us. This anxiety impedes our ability to establish a connection or build a relationship with the person. By flipping the question, you disrupt the anxiousness and create curiosity about the other person that likely leads you to show an increased interest in the person. The person can sense that increased interest and will likely respond positively to it (or not, and then you'll have a new question -- do I want or care if this person likes me? my extension, not the author's!). The author mentions that these are the strategies she teaches her teen clients, and it feels like you're getting that coaching when you read the page. Plus, it's less than a page of text, and you're off and running with a new strategy to try. It's pretty brilliant. If I were a counselor, I'd read this book and borrow some strategies to use! As a parent and an adult, I'm ready to try the first mini-habit. It's not like we stop wondering if someone likes us when we reach adulthood. The second mini-habit is called daily-belief building. Basically, you start a phone note or journal page that says, "I am enough the way I am. I know this because..." Then you write something every day for 60 days -- "search for evidence that from your daily life or your past that proves you add value to the world just the way you are." I am starting that list today. What could possibly be the downside of such a simple practice? Obviously, that's meant to build confidence, which also contributes to people skills. I wish there were a little more guidance on how to use the book. There's a short page that suggests reading through the whole book and marking it up with a highlighter or making notes. The author has ordered the focus areas in a certain way as a recommended progression. But there isn't much guidance as to how to come back and try the mini-habits. If you paused to do each mini-habit, you'd spend 60 days on the second mini-habit. So I'm thinking the intent is to read the whole book and then circle back to the mini-habits that seem most potentially helpful. But it would nice to have a little guidance written into the book about how to make it happen. I think a teen might need some help organizing to follow through on the mini-habits. But that's a quibble because I am totally into this book and ready to try many of the mini-habits. This would be a great New Year's gift -- much more effective than a New Year's resolution.
The author does an excellent job at helping anyone understand how to break unwanted habits and create better ones. As an adult I found the book even helped me BUT I got it for my 16 year old son who has formed some not so great habits as a result of being isolated during Covid. Unfortunately, you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make them drink. He absolutely refused to read the book. If you have a teen compliant enough to read the book, they are already on their way to better habits, but sadly the teens who need this book the most, like my son, won’t likely read it, and that’s a shame.
The information in it was plentiful and I wholeheartedly agree with it, but with my daughter being an obstinate teen, she felt the writer couldn’t understand her point-of-view.
My 7yo can be quite stubborn and at times as rebellious as a teenager. So I'm getting this book for myself, to prepare for his teen years, as well as to look for tips that I can use now. I found the book well organized and easy to follow. I am actually picking some ideas out of the book and will try on my son to see how they work.
I bought this book to share with my three teens. Each has specific challenges and I was super impressed at how succinctly and easily this book was written. It takes you by the hand and helps you to develop better habits. My teens are two girls, ages 16 and 17 and a boy that is 18. I definitely saw a difference with how the goal setting worked with my girls versus our son. The girls picked the book up and were totally willing to work and begin setting and achieving their goals. Our son, is another story, he is more of a work in progress and the last one to embrace it. Right now crossing my fingers that we will get better with working on the very beginning - setting the small habits with him. Two out of three of my teens have gotten a lot of help out of this book - and we're not finished with the third. So far, highly recommend.
In the age of intense social media, this book is a great tool to ground teens and help them focus on what's important. It has a good deal of knowledge and information that can be applied to a number of real world scenarios. Teens need all the help they can get these days and this is an excellent resource. I highly recommend!
Mini Habits for Teens: Small Changes to Help You Navigate Life's Challenges is one of those books that anyone - not just teens - should read to help form better habits and improve overall quality of life. The book opens with a discussion on what habits are, how they are formed and how they affect our lives. It goes on about how we are cued by certain stimulus such as a mirror or phone, which leads to the behavior such as we'll look at ourselves in a mirror or go to answer a phone, to the reward we receive like seeing ourselves or a message from our friends. The habits may not be bad per se, but some habits, such as sitting on our phones browsing Insta for long periods of time, not making eye contact with people, or constantly opening the fridge out of boredom can be detrimental. From there, the book goes into how we can break or reform our habits by starting small. Because cutting out habits cold turkey doesn't always work, making small changes, such as limiting the amount of screen time we get gradually, usually ends up with us changing our habits more successfully.
The second part of the book goes further into depth on forming better mini habits. It first open with "Laying the Foundation" which discuss the skills used for changing the habits. Building self confidence, being emotionally aware, reading non verbal cues, actively listening, and being empathetic are the main concepts discussed. Each chapter afterwards help form lasting habits related to
Chapter 4: Time Management (creating routines, managing stress, prioritizing)
Chapter 5: Personal Health (Eating healthy, exercising, spiritual health, emotional regulation)
Chapter 6: Fostering Relationships (building confidence, conflict resolution, socializing)
Chapter 7: How to "Adult" (budgeting, volunteering, paying it forward)
This book has had a very positive effect on both my kids and I've found that even at my age the book was a great refresher course. It's so easy to become complacent and it was a welcome "kick in the butt" to change some of my own bad habits and refresh good ones. Overall, it's a great book to help formulate good habits and create goals in small steps.
This book is a little lack luster. It talks about how much time it takes to form a habit and then the challenge from the book is to start small, with these "mini" habits. It explains the idea of a habit in a bit of a patronizing way and my teen didn't really connect with it at all. Some of the advice for starting a habit was good, but none of it was new or something that even my 13 year hasn't heard before about establishing good habits. Overall, it's fine, but not great.
This is a great book for any teen that might be struggling. It does not matter if the struggle is a physical, emotional or personal problem. The book is written in a way that easily addresses all aspects of life. I like that the chapters are short and that each section presents ways to develop good habits by making small, doable changes.
This would be a perfect book for any teen doing virtual school during the pandemic. It helps break down insurmountable tasks into small pieces without overwhelming the senses.
This book is very helpful and I found my son was receptive to this book. It was easy for him to read and Kate's writing is very helpful and easy-going. The mini-habit concept is great for teens and pre-teens to take small steps to work toward developing healthy habits. The book covers health and social skills. My son can get very busy, lose focus and become overwhelmed - this book has helped him better cope when this happens as well as mini-habits to help him avoid it too. Definitely Recommend!
This book presents a logical way to create good and eliminate bad habits.
Time will tell how well it works but it seems like the right way to create change
I think this is an amazingly written book for teens because it is easy to read and understand. Furthermore, the content in this book is interesting because the subject is one teens would relate to. The book is a moderate read-just above easy. From the beginning chapter to the end, the goal of this book help teens to take small steps to make big changes by creating mini habits. I recommend this book for every teens. But, it is a must read for highly motivated teens with goals for greatness.
This book on mini habits has a wealth of information to help teens learn about social interactions, making themselves better and more organized, and transitioning to adulthood.
The book talks about forming habits, setting goals, how to be an active member of a conversation, and more. It stresses that the small things can lead to big improvements.
The organization of the information in this book is easy to manage. Instead of pages of intimidating text, it's written with just a few paragraphs at a time, bullet points, summaries, numbered steps and bold words. It is very welcoming to read and can be read a little bit at a time if that is most convenient, or in big chunks. There are only about 150 pages, so the entire book can be read quickly.
There are some valuable resources at the end, including books, apps and podcasts. My teens have been reading this book in bits and pieces in their free time. They've said to me that there is useful information in it, and I can tell that lightbulbs are going off when they read something that may seem like common knowledge, but they hadn't really, truly considered it before. I'm glad to have this book as a resource for them and it has reminded me of a few things too so that I can try to be better.
A little background and bear with me: Adopting our youngest at 3yr old, after he was born addicted to meth and horrifically survive in an abusive and neglectful home during those first 3 crucial years of life..
Fast forward to present day at 17yrs old- he fights with everything the deficit caused by drug exposure- as he currently has a 3-5yr delay with intellect and memory retention deficit that boarders on comical if, not such a painful impact on his day to day..
Like any soon to be adult… Habits both, good/bad are part of daily life and have power to help/hinder ones world.. I knew he’d need an understanding of what is a habit… And the how? Along with the why..? Just to stand chance to become aware and empowered to make changes as needed.. This is when I had my Epiphany!! **One MUST grasp the TRUE idea of habits and their powers..
This sent me searching for help on a basic level- Which brings me to praise “mini habits.” It just made sense to educate and define what a habit is, why and how of habits and their power- then, hopefully with self reflection mentality- he would learn to recognize on his own. The book is set up in a realistic manner to achieve this. **this also makes a point to know and explain- that not all habits are bad!!!
I appreciate This is not a book giving orders or shaming.. teens experience plenty of that already! Nor, is this a figure it out yourself and call it a book either! This presents concepts in small slices + examples.. all to create reflection and tasking one to look inward to personalize information to the readers needs. I LOVE this was done in vocabulary that is conducive to teens vs. tackling a medical textbook!! Ha! I know some adults who could benefit from this- although simplified in delivery.. it applies to any!
I recommend for those who could benefit from a step by step explanation with self exploration. Those who process best in simple and tangible bites- this is one worth looking into. Sorry so long winded.. whew! Hope this info can help your decision- stay safe.
Great little book for a teenager to scoff at (at first), and then quick read a part here, a part there. There's plenty of good ideas, but a big part of it is going against the general teenager approach of "I know more than everybody and I'm the center of the universe" - that is, it suggests that things they do could be done slightly different with much better results simply by communicating.
Pretty pleased with this book - it's short, but it needs to be, especially since it's essentially a self-help book for teens, and teens tend to think they need no ones help. Recommended - grab a copy for the teens in your life!
I got this book for my teenage daughter. Like most teenage girls she can really feel like her world is out of control at times and like she doesn't know how to transition into being an independent adult. The book has so many great sections. It starts by breaking down what a good habit is and how to establish them. It has sections for how to create good habits for your health, to improve your social skills and transition to adult life.
As a parent we try and teach all these skills to our kids but sometimes they just don't want to listen. The book gives her conformation that the things I said were important habits to be learning and they teach her how to learn the habits in a manageable way. Also lets face it we do our best as parents to teach our children everything we think is going to be valuable to them but we might forget somethings. This book is a really well rounded way to get them started on the path to being a successful, happy and productive adult. Would definitely recommend.
This "Mini Habits for Teens: Small Changes to Help You Navigate Life's Challenges" book is an excellent tool for a teenager to use to help organize and implement healthy, positive, progressive habits for life. The book is broken into small bites with easy-to-read chunks that make this book less of an eye-roll for the teen that would otherwise not want to read a non-fiction, how-to, self-help book. It can be read over breakfast, just before bed, or even between social-media breaks. The topics are vast and easily broken down to understand and proceed to practice. Overall, this is a great book for a teenager who wants to gain ultimate control over their mind, body, soul, and time management.
Since the earliest time, doctors and philosophers, such as the great philosopher Aristotle, recognized that people act based on habits they developed, and the way to improve one’s self is to develop new habits. The great Jewish philosopher Maimonides, for example, stated that just feeling sorry for a misdeed is not enough. Repentance requires people to recognize that the past behavior is wrong, decide to change, and develop new habits of the proper behavior. “Mini Habits for Teens” does that. It shows readers how even small changes can help people navigate life’s challenges and improve.
The book explains what habits are, tells the three steps of forming habits, shows how changes in habitual behavior can improve school grades, make new friends, enhance relationships, increase social skills, save money, improve health, perk up confidence, and more. It teaches many things such as reading people, body language, active listening, empathy, time management, setting goals, prioritizing, managing stress, controlling distractions, spiritual growth, meditation, conflict resolution, budgeting, recommitting, and much more.
This is a great little book ... it give "habit" ideas to improve a teens character
It starts by explaining how to form and maintain a good habit.
Then breaks the habits into health, social, and time management .. teaching goal to adulting tasks
The book offers challenges ... at a party, talk to a person that you do not know. (with a lot more details).
My son and daughter (4 years apart) plan to work through the ideas in this book together as part of our school curriculum ... we homeschool.
There will be parts that we don't use at all, and other parts will be "life changing" for them (Mom can say it 1000 times, but someone else says it and it strikes home).
This will be a great book for families or adults as well ... lots of great ideas.
Of course, the challenge is in follow through and support.
