Leslie Rogers, self-defeating child, Created to SoarIt seems that some kids have a way of hurting their own outcomes with self-defeating gestures and behaviors. What they’re doing doesn’t make much sense sometimes, issues with the self-defeating child go on and on.

What’s happening with youngsters that makes them so hard on themselves? Is there a way to help these young people climb out of the hole they’ve dug for themselves? Can we help them and point them in a more positive and more productive direction? Fortunately, the answer is “Yes.”

Our guest on this program, Leslie Rogers, will help us understand how a child or teen’s negative thoughts, beliefs and feelings can limit their potential and rob them of hope. Leslie will also offer insights into how we can empower these young people to move beyond their self-defeating ways. And, when that happens, EVERYONE wins.

Creaated to Soar, Leslie Rogers, Dianne MatraversLeslie, a mother of four, has long had a passion for the well-being of young people. She knows, first-hand, the sort of self-defeating thoughts and feelings that come at youngsters today from all directions. As a result of what she has gained through her own journey, Leslie shares through her writing, her speaking and her mentoring that young people do have the ability and the power to discover who they are and where they are going.

A Mission of Empowerment: Addressing Teen Insecurities in Girls (Guest: Debra Beck)

Beck photoMost of us can remember parts of our teen years that we would rather forget. Stuggles and insecurities in growing up are often part of that picture.

The world today is even tougher and more difficult for our young people, be it struggles to achieve, fit in, or pass the tests of always being compared to others. And, according to our guest on this program, Debra Beck, issues and concerns faced by teenage girls are especially difficult ones.

In this program Debra will draw from her work and experience to point out to us the problems these teens face, what we can do to help them become more empowered, and, of course, what parents and other caring adults can do to help.

BeckbookWith over 20 years of experience in self-development and first-hand awareness of how difficult the teenage years can be, Debra took her passion for making a difference and made it her life’s work: helping teens, especially girls, learn to truly love themselves from the inside out. And, as a mother of two daughters, she is especially devoted to helping parents create harmonious connections with their teenage children.

Today, Debra  creates and facilitates workshops, retreats, training and mentoring through her organization, Empowered Teens and Parents. Debra is the author of the award-winning book, My Feet Aren’t Ugly: A Girl’s Guide to Loving Herself from the Inside Out.  (27:22)
