Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 25, 2012
In her new book, “The C.H.A.M.P. Within” (http://www.traciscampbell.com), international social advocate, talk show host and mentor Traci S. Campbell explores how fear and self-doubt can challenge people at every corner in our society, but she says that’s no way to live.
“Bullying has finally been spotlighted as a major problem for teens, who are typically quietly entrenched in a desperate search for identity,” she says. “I’m glad more people are aware of the problem, but it shows how much work we have in front of us. I want teens to have access to their strengths, and to what makes them unique individuals.”
Plastic surgery, which is becoming a socially accepted practice for teens battling bullying, shouldn’t be the answer, says Campbell, who believes character is the most important part of development. But with more children being raised in broken homes, which affect their mental and emotional development, easy answers are that much more attractive to them, she says.
Campbell’s book outlines a practical system for instilling healthy traits and habits in children and teenagers, the qualities that give them the self-respect and confidence to stand up to all of life’s bullies – be they people or adverse events. The author shares her personal story of overcoming challenges as a teenager in a single-parent home, and how she changed her life and helped her struggling mom in the process.
Her fun, interactive program includes a workbook and is designed to help teens and parents take charge of their lives. The program is not exclusive to teens, however, because millions of adults today are faced with unemployment, broken relationships and other personal problems that often leave them feeling rudderless, Campbell says.
“Traci shares her real-life experience of growing up in a single-parent home and shows us that WE are ultimately responsible for how we choose to live our lives,” writes Amazon reviewer Peggy. “The text and workbook are a must read for all parents, and children too!”
