If there’s a book worth giving to teens, it must be the ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens’ by Sean Covey. Consider teenage years as the most crucial part of growing up. We all go through it. Some experiences are pleasant, some are not. However, we will all agree that being teenager is such a remarkable part of life. This is the stage where the foundation of life skills are formed, honed or go the other way around.
In this book of Sean Covey, it shows teens the implications of developing the following habits:
Habit 1: Be Proactive®
Take responsibility for your life.
Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind®
Define your mission and goals in life.
Habit 3: Put First Things First®
Prioritize and do the most important things first.
Habit 4: Think Win-Win®
Have an “everyone-can-win” attitude.
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood®
Listen to people sincerely.
Habit 6: Synergize®
Work together to achieve more.
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw®
Renew yourself regularly.
Being a teen is tough. As much as you would like your teens to become good and productive citizens, life is still a jungle out there. Coming out of it strong, alive, and fighting is already an accomplishment itself. Think of the book as a weapon you can give teens. You might not be there all the time to protect them. But at least, once they read it, they will gain the ammunition they need when the going gets tough.
