Chicken Soup for the Soul – Just for Teenagers!

14 Sep

Chicken Soup for the Soul has come out with a great new book – Just for Teenagers! It’s 101 stories of inspiration and support for teens. I can’t even imagine being a teen right now – it seems so complicated! This book deals with a lot – feeling good about yourself, true friends and new friends, learning to do what’s right and so on! I loved a lot of the stories – my favourite was “The Bikini” by Christine Dixon. With so much pressure being put on girls (and boys) to be skinny, look pretty, look older etc. this was a great story! These are the types of stories that would have helped 20 years ago and are still helpful today. A great book for a mom or dad to read and file the stories away to help in sticky situations, or to give to a teen to read on their own. They really cover almost every topic in this book – this is a great resource for parents who find themselves, or their teen, in situations they’re just not sure how to handle. Reading this book made me a bit scared for when we have to deal with these teen problems – nice to have a guide book of inspirational stories to help out!!

2 lucky people will each be winning their own copy of this book. To enter comment with a teen story, or who you’d want to give this book to – something along those lines! 🙂 Contest open to all Canadians and will end Friday Sept. 16th at noon. Good Luck everyone!

  1. I would offer it to my brother to read. He has gone through a lot in the last year. He had been complaining of a sore back for some time. The doctors misdiagnosed him, after he continued complaining of intense pain they realized he had been living with a broken back. Not long after that he fell and broke his wrist. With a brace on his back and a cast on his wrist he had to undergo Knee surgery as the cartilage in his knee was wearing away. Then this summer he was over at a friends house when he witnessed a Horrible, Tragic Accident, leaving one of his friends in a coma in the hospital and another dead. I no longer live at home but it has been hard hearing from my mom and sister that my young brother has trouble sleeping at night. Night after night they hear him talk/yell out in his sleep. Maybe the stories in this book could help him…

  2. I have a friend with 4 boys all in the teenage years. If this is not challenging enough, they are all going through a seperation / divorce right now so tensions and emotions are at their peak. I’m hoping that the book can offer both insight and comfort for all involved.

  3. For me my story of becoming a teenager is a little differnet then most I had open heart surgery when i was 12 and got out of the hospital on my 13th birthday.

  4. I would give it to my babysitter. She works really hard and has really helped us out these last few years…I had 3 kids under 2!

  5. I would give this to my daughter. I have found so much inspiration from the chicken soup for the soul books, and I think she would enjoy reading this!

  6. Hi , I would love to give this to my friend’s daughter, who is 15 and finding that being a teenager isn’t all that fun ! With peer pressure , studies and everything else life is a bit hard.She would love to read about other kids going through the same thing.

  7. i would love to have this for my own reference for when my kids approach teenage yrs and then to pass onto them when they need 🙂
