To constantly aim for perfection may seem like a worthy goal to many, but for some, it can actually be a heavy burden. When you believe that you have to be perfect all the time, you can start to live in constant fear of making mistakes, no matter how small. Most children don’t really know what perfectionism is, yet many suffer from it – they feel that nothing the ever do is good enough, school projects are hard to start or finish, relationships can seem far too challenging, and self-esteem can be desperately low. This informative and inspiring volume helps kids to understand what perfectionism is, how it can hurt them, and how they can free themselves of its restraining shackles.
Family Coach Jenny Hale says:
“Perfectionism can cause a lot of stress for young people and their families, this book gives really thorough coverage of where it comes from, how to recognise it, and most importantly what to do about it. It’s aimed at your child but has plenty of help for parents also.”
