What Kids Need to Succeed

No. 9304

Proven, Practical Ways to Raise Good Kids (Revised & Updated 3rd Edition)
by Peter L. Benson, Ph.D., Judy Galbraith, M.A., and Pamela Espeland

All kids need specific assets in their lives—not financial assets, but Developmental Assets such as family support, a caring school, resistance skills, and self-esteem. The more assets young people have, the more likely they are to lead successful, healthy lives. This updated edition of a groundbreaking book draws on over two decades of research and experience. What Kids Need to Succeed spells out the 40 Developmental Assets—good things every young person needs. It also includes:

  • Up-to-date information about the assets in kids' lives today
  • Hundreds of specific, concrete suggestions for building assets at home, at school, in the community, and in faith communities
  • Checklists to help you identify the assets your kids already have, and those you can still work on together
  • "Tips for Teens: Build Your Own Assets" sections that speak directly to young people and help them drive their own success

What Kids Need to Succeed gives you the simple but powerful tools to be an asset builder. It offers commonsense ideas to get whole communities involved in working together for kids. Inspiring and Practical, it's an essential handbook for anyone who cares about young people. (257 pp.)
