Letting Go of Perfect pinpoints a state of mind that manifests in unhealthy ways among kids and teens today â€” the need to be perfect â€” and gives parents and teachers the guidance and support they need to help children break free of the anxieties and behaviours related to perfectionism.
This second edition features updated research on perfectionism, new strategies and resources, and advice and stories from real parents, educators, and students who have learned to use their perfectionistic behaviours in a healthy way. For children who believe their best is never good enough, perfectionism can lead to excessive guilt, lack of motivation, low self-esteem, depression, pessimism, obsessive or compulsive behaviour, and a sense of rigidity. By delineating the major types of perfectionism and providing practical tips, the authors show families and educators how they can help these children turn this source of anxiety into an area of strength.
This engaging, practical book is a must-have for parents and teachers wanting to help children overcome perfectionism, raise self-confidence, lessen guilt, increase motivation, and offer a future free of rigidity.
