About the Author
Stephanie worked with Pastor Flemon Henry in Oakland CA and learned what many homeless people never learned as children. Everyone shared stories and discussed solutions. Within three months, some of the homeless found jobs while others admitted they had a drug problem. We got them into drug rehab.
As a result, Stephanie saw a critical need to help strengthen families when children are young and vulnerable. She developed this ten-step guidebook, which can help you find answers for your family.
The key is self-awareness, which leads to self-discipline, self-control, and self-esteem. No matter what chaos has occurred in their lives, youth can succeed if they develop the three C's: courage, character and conscience. When youth have the emotional tools to avoid anger and temptations, they grow strong from within and less likely to go down a self-destructive path.
FOCUS ON PREVENTION to keep children safe and healthy. Parents and Grandparents can empower children so they learn how to stay emotionally centered! Adults can also help neighbors connect with each other. A network of caring adults can become mentors and keep children safe in neighborhoods.
In this book...All "A Life Experience" stories are true! They are from Stephanie Mann's experience and the people she worked with for thirty-five years. Their names have been changed to protect their identities.
