About this deal

Every now and then a book comes along that stops you in your tracks, with multiple light bulb moments, and a really important message. There is always one idea that you had not considered, or a new vocabulary you needed to have conversations with your teen son.

I wish I’d read it earlier when my son was in elementary or middle school as I would’ve adjusted my approach and response in handling some of his struggles with motivation sooner, but I still appreciated learning several tips that I can begin to implement now.You will probably like the plan I come up with a lot less than one you come up with, so give it some thought.

The demands on a teenager today are more intense than when we were teenagers, mostly in the academic sense. This book is a huge ray of hope for me, there's a saying that goes: "it takes a village to raise a child" however, to raise a teenager it surely takes more than just a village. Good advice about taking a step back and giving your son room to fail as a means of growing toward independence. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. If it doesn’t pertain to you fine, but that doesn’t make it not valid, and to say this book if for kids who get Cs and are otherwise going down a less than stellar path in life is way off the mark.This book not only explains teenage boys minds, it offers solutions or suggestions to issues we as parents might be facing. It is so simple but oh so real and raw and sincere and compassionate that I already know I will read it more than once. I found this book to be an incredibly useful tool for me as I LEARNED how to navigate my flawed interpretation of my son's inaction.

He may be an otherwise capable young man but seems apathetic and unmotivated, to the point you think he’s not excelling simply because he’s lazy.It’s the first one I’ve read in the area of understanding teenage boys that really spoke to me and made sense of this sometimes difficult season for families. Address his fear, his anxiety, and any ‘fixed mindset’ he may have around ‘I can’t do this’, ‘I will never be able to do this’. Shame is one of the most powerful and negative emotions for teens and can lead to damage in your relationship if you shame him when he already feels overwhelmed and stressed.

I REALLY worry about the impact the rising levels of perfectionism in young people is having on their mental health. He's Not Lazy' is the first book to address this problem, to help parents understand the underlying issues affecting their sons and to offer a constructive alternative to fights and fruitless bouts of negotiation.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. They develop multiple passions, and it’s a time in life for real engagement in hobbies and interests.
