Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Perfectionism is a problem for many teenagers today. Here’s help for Superkids, workaholics, type A’s, straight A’s, procrastinators, overachievers—and caring adults.

This thought-provoking, encouraging book explains the differences between healthy ambition and unhealthy perfectionism and gives strategies for getting out of the perfectionism trap—from recognizing the symptoms to rewarding yourself for who you are, not what you do.

It explains why some people become perfectionists, what perfectionism does to the mind and body, why girls are especially prone to perfectionism, and more. It also gives adults insight into how their behavior and expectations can contribute to perfectionism in teens they parent and teach.

The revised and updated edition of a Free Spirit classic includes new research and statistics on the causes and consequences of perfectionism, biographical sketches of famous perfectionists and risk takers, and resources for readers who want to know more.

 

Description:

Includes bibliographical references and index.
