Midge Patzer loves teenagers. So, knowing that the teenage years are a complex—yet powerful time—Ms. Patzer wanted to help them—and their parents—in some way.
Having raised two children of her own and a high school teacher for 30 years, Ms. Patzer decided to write Teenagers: Unlocking Personal Power.
In her book, Ms. Patzer shares her approach to understanding and guiding teens. According to the Ms. Patzer, her approach actually works and Teenagers: Unlocking Personal Power demonstrates this with case students that she has collected over her many years working with teenagers and their parents.
The key to this success is teaching teenagers that they have “Personal Power.” So, what is Personal Power? According to Ms. Patzer:
- Personal Power is the power that comes from within.
- Personal Power is internal confidence.
- Personal Power is dignified, respectful, and responsible.
"Teenagers are capable of altering and developing their behaviors and their beliefs in a constructive way. Watching teens find and develop their Personal Power is both a joy and a privilege. The self-esteem and self-awareness that accompany Personal Power are just below the surface in most teens. Every teenager has the capacity to uncover his or her Personal Power."If you are a parent, educator, or simply interested in helping teenagers through the hurdles of life, then check out Teenagers: Unlocking Personal Power available HERE on the website of MarketingNewAuthors.com.
