To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this book after following Brooke Romneys Instagram tips which were always spot on. My husband who NEVER buys anything and doesn’t always appreciate my spending, even said this was worth every penny and now HE is the one recommending it to all our friends with teens. We have 4 boys, two who are teenagers and too younger children. Many tips even apply to them, for example: one tip is “Be a good passenger”. My younger two said, “we said thanks for the ride to our bus driver today and she was very happy about it”. We flip it every Sunday, review the tip of that week and then discuss the next tip for the upcoming week. So far all the tips are spot on and great reminders to our kids who are going through a lot in their lives. Thank you Brooke for this amazing resource!
We read through a page per week with our kids- ages 12 and 13. It is a great way to talk about showing respect to others but in a way that is proactive. Also, there have been plenty of things that I didn't think of to teach them that are in this book, especially technology manners. We leave it standing on my desk as a reminder throughout the week (the large print shorter page) and it is our routine to flip the page and discuss each the new one each Friday. Highly recommend!
Bought this to have in my kitchen for my teenage boys to read. It’s been handy, we change it weekly and discuss over dinner each tip. I’ve even seen all my boys’ friends stop and read it as well. Definitely good life tips for teens and well, anyone.
Very helpful in our household to start meaningful conversations with our teenagers and help them consider important topics. Believe it or not, their friends may not always be the best influences, so it's great to have simple things like this literally staring them in the face now and then... remind the teens that they still have a few things to learn, despite the known fact that they already comprehend life, the universe, and everything.
Oh the teenage years. Good luck, parents, and stay calm.
I love this book! I love Brooke Romney's tips on Instagram but wanted them in a non-digital format. This is perfect! It is a cardboard stand-up with a short version of each on one side and more talking points on the other. The tips are all so timely and applicable, and I love that we don't have to be on our phones to have the discussion.
I have three young children so I wasn’t sure if this would be applicable to my family, but I’m so glad that I purchased this. There are a lot of things in it that I assume are common sense but are no longer taught to our children. This has brought up a lot of discussions with my kids that are needed now and in the future. I love that it helps guide me as a parent to know what I need to be teaching my children. Even if you have young children please buy this! Manners and etiquette are becoming a lost art! We need as many people teaching their children manners as possible, and this flip chart makes it easy to remember that sometimes manners aren’t so common sense!
This "book" rather talking points stand, is awesome for families with teens. It helps to share important manners and thoughts with your teen in a short and concise way that can start good conversations. Most manners are ones the adults need to brush up on as well :)
As a parent do you ever feel like you could use someone to backup all the little bits you are trying to teach your teen? All those little polite-isms and appropriateness for the situations? This is like having the other person in the room, the obviously more reputable person because they aren’t the parent, to back you up and say, yes, your mom does have a point. My teens pretend to roll their eyes at this flip book, it someone keeps turning the next page, and it isn’t me. They secretly want to know what the book is going to say next, and I am loving the backup!
Love this!!!! We keep it in our kitchen where everyone can see it. Sometimes we sit around the table eating and discuss whatever is on that day‘s page. Other times I just leave it open and turn the pages so that my teen boys can read something while they eat their cereal or learn some manners that they may have forgotten or that we haven’t talked about in a while. It’s a good reminder for people of all ages! Full of great stuff! Highly recommend! Good conversation starters!
