Empowering Our Children to Succeed
Quigley, Richard
Reclaiming Children and Youth, v23 n1 p24-27 Spr 2014
Children must be empowered to find their unique path to personal pride and respect. The concept of empowering youth is widely touted but often misunderstood and underutilized. Young people cannot fully develop their strengths and independence without being empowered to take charge of their lives. The polar opposite of coercion, empowerment is essential to reclaim the hearts and minds of struggling young people. This article offers some ideas on empowering children to succeed. The story of transforming an angry and alienated girl is presented.
