Year 16 - it came around so fast! It’s time to open your Book of You, and carve out some time just for you and complete the last section of your book – sob!

1. Find a quiet spot – you could head to a cafe or park
2. Talk through your favourite memories from their 16th year and add them to your Book of You 
3. It’s the final instalment – let them decide how they’d like to mark the occasion

1. The Moment

Happy 16th birthday from the Book of You book club, where we collect and cherish childhood memories together.

2. The Memory

This doesn't have to be the end, take a look at The Book of Me & You for older children to fill out with a significant grown up. Perfect if you want to carry on making memories together. 

To share your memory, tag @colour.chronicles on instagram. If we feature yours on our social or here, we’ll send you a book of your choice.

3. The Advice You Didn't Ask For

“For me, being a mother made me a better professional, because coming home every night to my girls reminded me what I was working for. And being a professional made me a better mother, because by pursuing my dreams, I was modelling for my girls how to pursue their dreams.”

— Michelle Obama

4. The Parent Friend

The Mix

A UK-based charity offering essential support to under-25s, The Mix’s website is a brilliant source of knowledge and information for young people. The charity also provides free, confidential advice and counselling via social, mobile and online. If you or your teen has questions, it’s a great place to start.

5. The Memory Maker

Plan a Holiday!

They’re 16, and although they may claim to have no interest in a family holiday, secretly they’d hate to miss out. Make it special by planning a trip together, letting them make some of the choices (within your boundaries and budget). That way they’ll be more enthusiastic when you get there – and you teach them some organisational skills to boot.

Happy memory making book clubbers
