Reframing Success (PDF eBook)

Below is a snippet:

Children and teens learn to propel life forward in meaningful directions when they develop an interconnected system of internal strengths – much like the roots of a strong tree. These qualities emerge as the result of adult support and relevant life experiences during childhood and adolescence.

Imagine these roots as the sources of guidance as kids journey through life – much like an internal compass. Everyone’s compass is different because each of us is different. It helps us navigate the good times and bad as well as make meaning of our experiences and relationships.

When children develop an internal compass from which to draw strengths, they learn to navigate life without the help of parents and teachers.

They plot their own paths and create their unique maps toward the future.
