Reviews for Empowerment Parenting
“With a background in adult education and youth work as a Day Camp Counsellor plus leader positions within Scouts Camp/ D of E Award in Canada I read this booklet. It is well researched and presented in such a way that people taking this will grasp the concepts very well. It has a logical flow to it and various exercises within it to reinforce to what you have been taught. Lastly, it has a resource list and websites for further Information for you to do further readings on topics that maybe of interest to you here.”

WHAT MAKES THIS PROGRAM DIFFERENT? Stephanie Mann has been a crime and violence prevention specialist and consultant working with criminal justice agencies, politicians, police and citizen groups since 1976. She has helped city leaders strengthen families, support youth and restore community peace. Now, any city can strengthen families. Fear and anger grows when police assume too much power. When neighbors take ownership of neighborhood safety, they reduce social isolation, fear and PREVENT youthful bad behavior. Involved neighbors can build trust, restore hope, solve problems and help create community PEACE. The imbalance of power led to violence in Ferguson MO and Baltimore MD and many other cities. Demonstrations across America exposed the breakdown between citizens and police.
