They are written in a style that is easy to follow, and the questions and exercises are most helpful for improving understanding and putting skills into practice.

Managing Stress should be essential reading for students who need the skills to recognize stressors and adopt the healthy behaviors that put them in charge of their lives. It’s easy to read and the short exercises and summaries at the end of each chapter are particularly helpful, providing teens with valuable reinforcement of each of the stress management topics.
These books in the Make the Most of Yourself series are attractive, helpful, and affordable. There are many practical applications for these books in school settings. They are excellent resources for counselors, behavior interventionists, and social workers. With eye catching graphics and simple, meaningful activities, these books will appeal to students and teachers. I would also recommend the books as resources for Parent Centers, PTA’s, and PTO’s.
The MTM of Yourself books have a variety of tools for a parent to put into practice and maintain…..they are family oriented and provide practical tactics that address common teen challenges, including time and organizational skills. Having a resource that identifies ways of doing things allows both parent and child to embrace ideas in a way that builds fellowship and avoids conflict. I highly recommend these books for providing healthy ways for teens to grow.
