Through my work as a psychotherapist, foster parent, and college instructor, I’ve seen what happens when kids lack mental strength—but I’ve also seen kids thrive when we give them the tools to reach their greatest potential. My new book, 13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don’t Do, will teach you how to give up the bad parenting habits that prevent kids from becoming mentally strong. Whether you’re raising a toddler or a teenager, I’ll show you how to become a mental strength coach so you can raise a resilient, capable, and competent child who is ready to face all of life’s challenges.

13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don’t Do

Amy Morin, the author who identified the characteristics that mentally strong people share, now gives adults—parents, teachers, and other mentors—the tools they need to become mental strength trainers. While other books tell parents what to do, Amy teaches parents what “not to do,” which she says is equally important in raising mentally strong youngsters.

As a foster parent, psychotherapist, and expert in family and teen therapy, Amy has witnessed first-hand what works. When children have the skills they need to deal with challenges in their everyday lives, they can flourish socially, emotionally, behaviorally, and academically. With appropriate support, encouragement, and guidance from adults, kids grow stronger and become better. Drawing on her experiences and insight, 13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don’t Do combines case studies, practical tips, specific strategies, and concrete and proven exercises to help children of all ages—from preschoolers to teenagers—build mental muscle and develop into healthy, strong adults.
