KIAT Book Club: The Resilience Revolution Ch. 6

Well, we’ve come to the last chapter of The Resilience Revolution.

The Resilience Revolution: Discovering the Strengths in Challenging Kids
The Resilience Revolution: Discovering the Strengths in Challenging Kids

This chapter was quote short as it didn’t introduce any huge concepts, but more so wrapped up what was previously discussed.

The chapter talks about putting everything we’ve discussed together and helping kids recognize their purpose in life. It discusses how individualistic our Western society is and how it is isolating and can prevent us from recognizing our power within to help others.

Narcissism is predominant throughout our society and often hits hardest in our teen years. Learning to use our lives and our abilities to help the world is one of the best things we can do for others and, ironically, ourselves as it creates a real happiness and worth.

This was a short entry, I know. The chapter itself was quite short. Overall, though, now that we have completed the book I can say that I highly recommend it to all teachers or employees who work with difficult kids.

If you want to buy the book, here’s the link to Amazon.
