Editorial Reviews

Review

"A real "gem" of book that is a must read for any child but in particular for those who are struggling with the challenges of growing up. My Strong Mind could be read alone, by a teacher in a classroom for group discussion and by a parent when reading to their child. Good Job. I highly recommend it." James Peterson Ph.D, CEO Stress Master International

"This charming story is chock-full of helpful practical tips to help children (and all of us really) build a strong mind" www.weareteachers.com

"The message of empowerment and mental strength is one that definitely needs to be out there - especially with young children." A.J. Spedding, children's book editor

"We used this with our child who was experiencing problems in school We saw some immediate impacts from reading it regularly and using the language present in the book." An Amazon customer

From the Inside Flap

Mental Toughness is a combination of resilience, the curiosity and drive to grow yourself, and confidence in your own abilities and interactions with people. Mental Toughness has been used in elite sport psychology for many years to increase performance, and it applies to everyday life too.

Professor Peter Clough defined 4 characteristics of mental toughness, called the 4 Cs:
  • Commitment: I set goals and work hard to deliver them
  • Control: I'm pro-active and keep my emotions in check
  • Challenge: I stretch myself and learn from everything
  • Confidence: I have the ability and I can stand my ground 
Research shows that mentally tough children perform up to 25% better in exams. They sleep better, are more engaged in the classroom, and have higher aspirations. They also transition more successfully from junior to secondary education, perceive less bullying,and are less likely to adopt anti-social behaviour. 

Like us, we can be sure our children will have to deal with adversity, stress, and challenges during their life. Mental Toughness is a plastic personality trait and can be developed or improved. The examples in this book show how small interventions and positive thinking can lead to better outcomes.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I'm a father of two girls and live with my wife in Melbourne, Australia. I'm a mental toughness advocate and started to write children's books to make a positive difference, promote conversation and help children learn about confidence, resilience and a positive & growth-mindset.

My first children's book My Strong Mind is based on real life stories from my two daughters, Poppy and Coco. I'm very proud it has been translated in to 11 languages.

Go to http://www.mentaltoughness.online/ to download some free fun exercises to do with the kids at home. Adults can find here a free 40 page self help guide I wrote. Primary school teachers can find over 25 exercises to help develop mental toughness in the classroom.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I was looking for.
By Amazon Customer on March 20, 2019
My 5 yo has been having a hard time with some older (7 and 8 yo) mean girls in the neighborhood. This book is EXACTLY what I was looking for. Highly recommend for someone looking to teach their child how to build their confidence.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great book if you want to teach your children how to misspell words
By Murr Clurr on October 2, 2019
Not sure who the publisher is but they need to fire their editors. Really disappointed by the grammatical errors in the book - an educational book no less. Garbage.

I was looking forward to this book coming as soon as opened I was very disappoint with quality.

Too bad the contents are exceptional.

For £9.45 I expected so much better, the pages are very fine, the cover remains half - open since the first time you read it.
