If you have run out reading material this Spring Break, I have a two good books to recommend that are free. The first book, I discovered on the blog Parenting in the Digital Age. Teaching Kids to Be Good People by Annie Fox is free this week (April 1 – 5) on the Kindle. After downloading this book, I visited Annie Fox’s website and found another free book. This one is for teens, The Teen Survival Guide To Dating and Relating.
In Teaching Kids to Be Good People, Ms. Fox shares her own stories about how to teach kids to make responsible choices online and offline. Throughout the book, she includes family quizzes, helpful conversation starters and links to her podcasts. I love a parenting book that includes a questions and answer section and she has a great one at the end. If you love Q&A like I do, she has more on her website for both parents and teens.
For your teen, she has the free Teen Survival Guide to Dating & Relating. The guide covers friendships, peer pressure, dating as well as getting along with parents and siblings. Again, she has lots of Q&A. This book is not just for teens. For parents, it is an excellent refresher course on what it is like to be a teenager. Before passing it on to your teen, you may want to scroll through it yourself.
