"Be Special, Be Yourself for Teenagers" is a collection of inspirational teens stories that does the job for you! The book shows adults and teenagers that we need to appreciate who we are and what we have and feel free to show love to our loved ones. If you as parents are shocked at how troubled teens are nowadays and unhappy with the amount of time they spend in front of the TV or the computer, if you are worried about increasing teen violence and depression, alcohol, accidents, drugs or sexual exposure, if you are concerned your teenager may be suffering from overweight or anorexia, and you want to play an active role in supporting your teen and helping him or her find strength and confidence, then this may be the most important letter you have read all year. Here's why… as an educator, the author has worked with parents and teens in the last 22 years, promoting emotional intelligence and strong family relationships. She has found that telling stories, as opposed to lecturing, was a great way to inspire, promote self-acceptance and boost confidence in people at any stage of life. She started focusing on teens when she was coaching parents and running parenting workshops all around the world. She discovered there are many troubled teens out there and there are many difficulties in parenting teens. As Ronit Baras says, “I have found that both parents and teens were unhappy with their relationship and that parents really did care and wanted to support their teens (why else would you go to a parenting workshop?). Readers of my book wrote about the growth they had experienced while reading the book and the values they had taken from it. Teens said they never knew grownups felt and thought like that and parents said the same about their teens.” Here’s what others have added to these thoughts: "I finished the last story and went to hug my son…" Ann W., Chicago, IL; The stories in the book inspired teens to push through challenges and find their unique identities, after "meeting" teens that showed them a way to be the best they can be.” Unfortunately, teen exposure to the Internet has taken some of the control away from parents, destroyed some values and left teen perception of life to depend on their friends, the books they read and what they see on TV and on the computer. The good news is that between all such influences, "You, the parent, are still the most influential agent in your teen's life" One of the most common expressions I have heard from my clients was "I wish I knew this when I was young". How many times have you said this to yourself?
