Perfectionism may seem like a worthy goal, but it's a burden. When you believe you must be perfect, you live in constant fear of making mistakes. Most children don?t even know what perfectionism is, yet many are perfectionists or budding perfectionists. Nothing they do is ever good enough. School assignments are hard to start?or hard to let go of and hand in. Relationships are more challenging. Self-esteem is low. Written to and for ages 9?13, this book helps kids understand what perfectionism is, how it hurts them, and how to free themselves. Throughout, kids are encouraged to work with their parents or other adults to learn where their perfectionism comes from and ultimately how to accept themselves as they are. Includes true-to-life vignettes, exercises, and a note to parents.
