LONDON, Aug. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Andro Donovan, who began her career teaching English literature to disengaged students, learning how to inspire them about their lives and futures, is now sharing what she learned with parents whose children are approaching the new school year with a sense of dread and fear of failure.
Donovan, whose book "Motivate Yourself: Get the Life You Want, Find Purpose and Achieve Fulfilment" was published in July by Capstone, a subsidiary of Wiley, is an expert at raising teenagers' self-esteem, which can take a hit especially as teens face the pressures of GCSEs in England and SATs in the U.S.
She can talk about:
- What parents can do to help quiet the negative inner voice that inhibits their child's personal growth and promote optimism.
- How parents can challenge their children to discover who they really are and what they are capable of achieving.
- Why exam results do not define who your child is.
- The role parents can play in fostering the growth of healthy new habits for the school year ahead.
