Tools Needed for
Day to Day Life
So many parents, teachers, counselors and coaches are having the conversation about how our children are not getting what they need from the school system in order to be independent and capable in real life. Sure, they are getting an education, but the element that is missing is how to handle day to day basics.
"Get It Together...Cultural and Practical Tips to be a Successful Adult" is gaining enthusiasm in multiple K-12 school districts. These districts are piloting the program and giving positive reviews! Teachers that did not have this book previously are thankful that it is in print now as you can see from Mike Christie's statement below.
Mike is a former Junior Achievement Volunteer who spent hundreds of hours in the classroom teaching high school students. He also served as Board Chair for the Southwest Connecticut Chapter of JA for 3 years.
After reading Get It Together, Mike said; “If only I had this book to share with my students when I was teaching. The information is invaluable for young people who are struggling with what to do, and how to do it. This book would make an amazing course for high school students in their junior or senior year. And it would be a godsend for the teachers.”

The evidence is crystal clear - Get It Together is making a BIG impact not only on the lives of the young adults it touches, but on those who’ve chosen to help through mentoring them.
This book is designed to support parents in having those conversations with their children, to help teachers instruct their students and to help our children to grow up to be smart and independent adults that are capable of handling the new responsibilities that come along with this new role in life.
The goal of the book is to teach our children how to take control of their life and learn to make good decisions. If they don't know how to do something and they feel silly asking someone to explain something basic, they won't learn. The book gives them permission to find the right people to support them that they are confident in and willing to get answers from.
