Real-Life Rules

Raise happy, confident, and resilient children–engaging activities that explore the life lessons that make for a well-rounded upbringing.

As our children journey into adolescence, their social worlds begin to expand. While we can’t protect them from what other people say or do, or paint them a picture of a perfect world, we can teach them how to handle themselves and difficult situations from the inside out.

Teens and tweens crave more autonomy, but they need guidance more than ever. By equipping children with a variety of methods for dealing with different scenarios, we can give them the tools they need to navigate through life. This book offers insights, practical advice, and concrete activities that will serve children well as they begin to find their way independently in the world, while at the same time helping parents to provide them with scaffolding to be safe, happy, and successful.

With chapters that focus on:

· cultivating positive qualities such as gratitude, courage, integrity, and generosity

· understanding health and nutrition

· mastering simple etiquette

· connecting with others, resolving conflict, and empathy

· exploring fiscal responsibility

· best practices for social media and navigating the digital world

· and more!

Through hands-on projects, vivid graphic printables, and interactive activities, Real-Life Rules brings the whole family to the table, offering opportunities to explore, discuss, and experience both the concrete and abstract concepts that are critical for living a meaningful, thoughtful life.
