Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff for Teens: Simple Ways to Keep your Cool in Stressful Times

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff for Teens: Simple Ways to Keep your Cool in Stressful Times

By: Richard Carlson

In this book written for teens, Dr. Richard Carlson, the #1 bestselling author of the Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff series covers common teen concerns with chapters such as: “Make Peace with Your Mistakes,” “Be Creative in Your Rebellion,” “Turn Down the Drama Meter,” “Get Out of the Emergency Lane” and “Convince Yourself that One Teen Does Make a difference”.  It is laid-out in a simple fashion with chapters consisting of only three pages or fewer each (it lends itself well to reading it front-to-back in its entirety, or to skimming or reading only some of the 100 chapters).

Dr. Carlson speaks directly to his audience in much of Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff for Teens such as in this excerpt, “Many teens think that they couldn’t possibly make a difference in the world, but that’s not so.  The truth is, you make a difference every time you look the other way when someone makes an innocent mistake, or when you help to make someone’s day a little better…you make a difference every time you’re thoughtful, helpful, cooperative, generous, compassionate…every time you stand up for what’s right…every time you are a good listener or when you offer your forgiveness…even a simple smile can make a world of difference”.   Teens can learn one hundred different and very well thought-out ideas that may be helpful to live happier, more fulfilled lives in this book dealing with stress management.  As with his other Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff titles, teens will find practical and inspirational advice and personal stories from Carlson to help them to cope with the pressures, challenges, and issues of everyday life in this book.
