Awesome... helping me understand my inner teenager, heal and grow! Loved the explanations and insightful exercises.. The case studies helped me not feel alone in the struggle and see it was possible to overcome it
The journal is great to work through too.
I bought these books as I struggled to understand what was going on in my oldest teen's head. This world is NOT the world I grew up in, and I had difficulty in communicating and relating to my teen. As I have 2 other girls waiting to reach this milestone, I felt this was the best investment I could find. I was right! Not only did it help my understand was they are - and will - go through, it made them feel like they aren't alone. The journal was an important addition as they were able to write down what they are experiencing and compare it to the companion book. Note that these are teens that didn't embrace journaling in the first place! This one gave them structure and direction, which was the missing piece. This has been life-altering, giving them the power of VOICE. Aside from that, the way that it is written feels like a conversation - this is what my girls loved the most about it. Not being talked TO, but WITH. As an added bonus, I felt like I could reconnect with my younger self, applying what I read to what I went through in my own teenaged years. That alone was invaluable. :)
This book, I would but my damn mind won't let me
goes deeper into the conscious and unconscious mind and really helps people understand how to use their mind in a technical yet simple way.
The book is filled with plenty of examples that can literally be applied to the readers lives as they are reading.
Even as an adult reading the book helped me to understand how all the stuff that I think effects my life. It also gave helpful tips to help me stop the negative thoughts and feeling when they are running thru my mind.
Jacqui's writing style is conversational and down-to-earth, making you feel and understand her words like she was a trusted friend there with you. If you have any questions for her, I can say from experience that she is easy to contact and is passionate about helping young women grow. Read her book and follow her on Instagram - it's more than worth it.
I would highly recommend this book to all women, not just ones in their teens.
The journal has so many great topics and activities. It guides teen girls to dig deep inside, and not only identify negative emotions, but explore why they are feeling those emotions and work through the steps of how they can change it to positive emotions.
I am 40+. I don’t have daughters. I bought this for myself. I read it in one setting. This book is amazing and I have recommended to several of my 40+ friends. It’s not just for teens. This is for any woman who needs to get out of her head and needs a boost.
