Month in Review: January 2016

We hope your new year is off to a great start. You may have noticed we haven’t been doing weekly link roundups—that’s because we’re transitioning to monthly features based on feedback we got in our end of year readers’ survey. We’ll have more updates on how we’re adapting to better serve your needs soon, but for now, enjoy this recap of featured posts on The Hub as well as other resources form around the web to help you better curate library collections for teens.

    From the article on Disney Princesses and women:
    “Furthermore, studies suggest that it’s better to praise children for their efforts or accomplishments rather than their traits — better to say “you aced that test!” than “you are really smart!” — because children are more motivated when complimented on their efforts.”

    Or even better, because not everyone is smart and because you’re not less of a person if you can’t ace a test let’s say “That was really kind of you” or “How thoughtful you were to do that” and maybe encourage some kindness.
