Children's Literature - Justina Engebretson
The twenty-first century is well known for its overstressed, overworked, and overbooked citizens, and it seems to be impacting people at a younger and younger age. What is the key to stopping this busy madness? Of course, one solution would be adding extra hours to the day; but these extra hours would quickly be filled up with more time-consuming commitments. The true solution to the hustle and bustle lies in time management, and what better time to learn this skill than in the teen years, when life begins to quickly pick up speed. In the "USA Today Teen Wise Guides" series, young adults can profit from some quick tips describing how to juggle the demands of life and still schedule time to unwind. The first chapter dives right into the three biggest struggles that teenagers of the twenty-first century are dealing with: too much to do, too much distraction, and too much pressure. This paves the way for the second chapter and its focus on the importance of creating a time budget, beginning with a list of things that one has to do. The rest of the book shows specific ways to make the most of one's time, including creating and keeping a daily planner, getting rest, and managing school in an organized and effective way. This short book will go a long way in preparing teens to be effect time managers by helping them establish lifelong patterns that will have a positive impact on their college experience and future careers.
