Book Review: Success Skills for High School, College, and Career, Rev Ed.

2020 has been a rough year for students. All the more reason to take a moment and focus on skill building. Success Skills for High School, College, and Career is now revised and ready to help students plan for success.

What makes Success Skills for High School, College, and Career, Rev Ed. a great read and perfect gift to include for the Holidays?

There are 8 chapters focusing first on Getting to Know Yourself and ending with Embracing Mentoring. By reading through this book you get to know your strengths and weaknesses. You are inspired to properly challenge yourself in various ways for your career path. As you move through the chapters you learn how to communicate and form business relationships. Then tackle what it means today to look and act in a professional way all while balancing your personal life.

Less of a book full of inspiring quotes and motivation, it is more of a road map to cover all you can think of when getting to and staying in your goal profession and making it work for you beyond the road you took getting there.

I have read a few success books that told me ‘aim high’ or ‘take notes…” but I have never been told in a success book that College students can visit their school’s student center on advice on how to dress for an interview and even help you acquire such clothing. This makes a great gift for students with plenty of skills and advice for 2020 and beyond!

Name Stories personalized name print

Comment: I was sent a print for this feature. Thank you to Name Stories for collaborating with Parenting Healthy

Name Stories personalized name print

Last week we tore up our tweens game room and to reorganize that room it meant using his bedroom for extra storage. We are distance learning to start the school year in most of Wa. state so we needed to create him a home learning space. He is 12 and heading into the 7th grade so we did our final sweep of toys and little boy ‘stuff’ – he wants sports and gaming. I would love to hold onto the memories and toys and prints that meant so much to him at different times in his life, now he says, “Mom. Just toss it”.

Aside from basketballs and gaming themes I hung my piece of special, his Name Stories personalized name print so that he remembers exactly who he is and meant to be by his name. Anthony – it means Son of Hercules, strong, independent, wise. A strong Italian name connecting him to his genealogy and defining his spirit. This is a keeper and will stay with him on a wall forever.

Name prints

These name prints are available at Name Stories and I was even able to personalize it by adding the top line, Our Amazing Son…Anthony. I chose the white on red as red is his favorite color. His personalized name print came wrapped well and undamaged, ready for a frame.

Whether for baby’s room or to add something special to your teen’s space, this personalized name print will remind them of the meaning of their name. When we are rearranging the home and our lives around distance learning or perhaps you will switch to homeschooling to keep social distancing, this can be a special personalized name print to hang in this space.

At a time of new normals and a huge shift in schooling or even for the teen heading to College on top of a virus which adds worry, perhaps this gentle reminder to ground them in the meaning of their name and who they stand for is needed more than ever. Name Stories has your child’s name and meaning ready to print and send. Customize your child’s personalized name print today at NameStories.com

Head back to school with the naturally anti-viral copper H2O Water Bottle

Comment: I was sent a Copper H2O bottle. Thank you to Copper H2O for collaborating with Parenting Healthy

Head back to school with the naturally anti-viral copper H2O Water Bottle

It’s a water bottle, but it’s copper. This only means one thing – tamra jal (aka: water stored in a copper vessel). You never want to infuse your water with bad chemicals found in standard plastics or some metals, but anti-viral copper has great health benefits for you and the environment. I am excited to share my new Copper H2O bottle.

the better water bottle

When water is contained in copper it will become natural alkaline water, which helps balance your body’s pH levels. The anti-bacterial powers of copper becomes a great anti-oxidant, improves immunity, supports good health, prevents aging, eliminates toxins and free radicals, and stimulates the brain. Why wouldn’t you want ice cold water from a copper water bottle?

By using these well-designed, anti-viral copper bottles from Copper H20 we cut down on plastic waste that traditional water bottles contribute to. You can ensure that these copper water bottles are made of pure copper (not all brands are actually pure copper). Leak free and the better way to store your water overnight for natural alkaline water by morning, get your Copper H2O water bottle today.
