EXPLORING THE UNIQUE GENIUS OF EVERY 21ST CENTURY ADOLESCENT
YOUTH Positive is both a philosophy and a way of life, encouraging teens and children to "live positive" and to take an active participatory role in their lives, especially in their education. During the adolescent years, teens are in the prime of their self-development. This set of years (from 14-19) has a greater impact on their future lives than does any other stage in life. Developing a positive sense of self and acquiring a useful set of tools, skills, and abilities is imperative to creating a future where they can thrive and flourish, rather than languish in anxiety and depression.
Through the Personal Experiments in each section of YOUTH Positive, students will experiment for themselves, on themselves, the ideas presented throughout the book. They will do personal investigations into their own beliefs, mindsets, habits, and behaviors. Their own lives will be their research labs and the results of their experiments will give them personal connection to and with their own strengths and values, their life philosophy and their goals - all of which will lead them in a direction of life satisfaction, happiness, and positive overall wellbeing.
