The nature of children’s health around the world is changing. There is now a ‘new morbidity’ occurring, with mental health conditions, self-harm and suicide taking centre stage.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, over 560,000 Australian children and young people have mental health prob¬lems and the World Health Organization’s report into child and adolescent mental health illustrates that these statistics are reflected in the USA, Canada, the United Kingdom and Europe. We must turn the tide on this ever-growing crisis, our children’s future depends on it.
The good news is as significant adults for our children, the real difference is in our hands. The last two decades have witnessed increasing empirical research that has provided us with rich data about what people need to thrive and fulfil their potential. This book demonstrates how every adult who comes into contact with children can foster the mindsets, habits, tools and skills that children need for psychological wellbeing throughout childhood, adolescence and into adult life.
Are you ready to raise a mentally fit generation?
Raising a Mentally Fit Generation provides parents with practical advice that is both accessible and transformative. It’s filled with real-life stories and science-based, practical advice. Read it, read it again, and then more importantly, apply it.
Kari’s extensive knowledge and experience in applying positive psychology and mental fitness practices has made a significant impact in the education sector over many years. There are very few programs and books showing educators and parents how to build positive mental health activities that can be easily incorporated into the everyday life of children to build habits to support their wellbeing during the good times and the bad. This book is a “must read” for anyone working with young children, especially those with significant challenges.
Ask any parent what they want for their kids and they’ll say something like … happiness and success; but what many really mean is that they want their children to be resilient and able to cope with life’s ups and downs. In this book Kari draws on the research and presents practical advice for how parents can help their children foster and develop the crucial skills required for this; and she does it in a way that’s easy to read and easy to apply.
Raising a mentally fit generation is everyone’s responsibility. We need to do things differently and help young people become and stay mentally fit. This work gives us tools to help young people build mental fitness muscles and develop seven key habits. Kari has distilled the science into ten components and brought this to you in a very readable and memorable way. Parents, schools and young people need to read this, discuss it and share it.
I loved this book. It is a fabulous read, so easy to digest with some great tips and tricks along the way. The book is supported by robust science and Kari’s unique experience in this field. This is a must read and will add tremendously to the conversation about mental health and wellbeing, about raising mentally fit children, and being the best parent we can be. Well done Kari on a wonderful achievement.
