Growing up is a painful process for everyone involved. Teens want freedom, while parents want their kids to be responsible. Teens struggle with heartbreak, friendship troubles, self-esteem issues, and overwhelming expectations. Parents worry about the choices their kids might make but can’t get through to them… and nobody knows what the #@!% they’re doing. It just so happens that we’ve got a manual for that.
It’s a colorful, practical, and engaging 100-page guide to every soft skill your kid needs to be happy. And you won’t have to rack your brain trying to get them to read it! While applying the scientifically proven method of visual learning, Life Skills 101 teaches important life lessons in a way that is accessible and easy to digest. Whether 10 or 18, your kid won’t be able to put it down (and neither will you).

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
It all started from a never-ending stream of questions that Sofiya, now 16, brought to her mom, Maria. Maria tried to answer them all, but keeping in mind the separation period, she was also looking for an independent source that could be helpful for teenagers like her daughter. She was trying to find something wise, positive, mentor-like, easy to read and understand. It did not exist. Coincidentally, Maria was an Editor-in-Chief of a Russian non-fiction publishing house and a former management consultant, so she read a lot. It gave her the idea and confidence to create this source from scratch — a simple, visually attractive, very concrete, laconic book with short text blocks about the most essential life skills that modern teenagers can grasp without being bored.

Ivi Green is a curious bird peeking out at you from our logo. Her cheerful, curious, creative temperament helps her to navigate life with love and wonder. Ivi Green is also the alias for our team of passionate parents, dedicated kids, and creative professionals who participate in the project with the same Ivi spirit. The project was created by an educated mom Maria for her teenage daughter Sofiya as the answer to an endless flow of questions and discussions. Maria was looking for a source of generational wisdom to share with her child, but she couldn’t find anything that really appealed to the way teens learn and think. So, she created her own source from scratch, using over 100 bestselling books and articles as inspiration. All of the visuals and content have been tested on (and approved by!) a real teen. The book Life Skills 101 became a bestseller in Russia, was printed in several European languages, and was finally translated into English by 15 years old Sofiya.
