Do you know that one of the major challenges facing most teenagers is the issue of low self-esteem? Studies have shown that low self-esteem is linked to poor academic performance and achievements, violence, school drop-out rates, drug addictions, teenage pregnancy and teens' suicide. Another research revealed that most boys and girls said they joined gangs not to feel safer but to feel important. And one out of four girls said they had sex the first time to feel more loved or popular. These findings simply show that teenagers desperately need help to overcome their silent battles with low self-esteem.
Yes, teenagers often put up a facade of self-sufficiency and pretend that they have everything under control, but the truth is that they desperately need your help as a parent. More so, it has been proven empirically that the greatest influence on the life of a teenager comes from the parents. Not the internet, media or movie. However, as a parent, you may not be able to help them in this regard if you lack the requisite knowledge or proven strategies to adopt in solving this problem. Hence, the reason this masterpiece was written for you.
