Passions, Strengths, & Self Esteem, by Dr. Orly Katz- Four Star Review



“Passions, Strengths, and Self Esteem!” by Dr. Orly Katz is basically an essential guide to surviving junior high. I enjoyed the book, and thought it contained some very good information. Although I haven’t been in junior high for many years, it hasn’t been so long that I don’t remember what it was like. This guide would have helped me tremendously during those years where instead, I sort of went it alone and figured it out as I went. My only issue with the entire book was that it seemed slightly more repetitive than necessary. That’s just me though, and remember that I’m a grown woman looking at this. I loved the personal stories and thought it made this a more insightful, personalized self help guide. I also thought the ‘worksheets’ made the point very clear, and it also gave kids a chance to really make the book personal- to think about what they were going to do, how they were going to do it, and why they were going to do it. I would recommend this book to anyone with children in junior high, and to junior high students, whether you think you/they need it or not.

    Letting your child know that you are supportive of their passions and dreams is a big boost to their confidence.
