Meaningful Book for Teenagers
by Darlene Abraham, teacher, Parkhill Girls Home, Ontario, Canada
   There is a real shortage of good, meaningful books for teenagers today.  We have books on self-realization for adults.  But sadly, we have few for those who need it most, tomorrow’s mothers and fathers!
It is difficult to judge how big an impact A Teenager’s Guide to Mind Control will have upon their lives.  It is my hope that the seeds of new thinking will have been planted in their consciousness.

My daughter was bored Sunday afternoon and I had to go to work,
so I threw her my copy of A Teenager’s Guide to Mind Control  and said, “Read this and I’ll be home by the time you’re finished.”
When I came home she was sitting in the carport crying her eyes out.
She wouldn’t stop crying. I was worried. I asked her, “Who has been hurting you? Was it your brother? Was it your sister? Tell me.  Who is it that has hurt you?”
She finally answered me through her tears, “I just found out it’s me.”
When she calmed down she told me that when she read A Teenager’s Guide to Mind Control she finally heard all the things I have always tried to teach her.
Thank you for saying what I wanted her to know, in a way that she could hear it.
 I learned that I can control my thoughts
by Laura Adams, student Parkhill Girls Home, Ontario, Canada   

One of the reasons I liked the book is because it sounds like you’ve gone through many of the situations that I’ve gone through. I have learned from your book that I can control my thoughts and how to handle my problems.
It will take me a while to do so because I’m a very bad tempered person and I have a hard time trying to control my emotions.
Also, I don’t have much self confidence, but I will TRY.
As a matter of fact, I WILL follow in your footsteps because I’m going home for good in two and a half weeks so I’ll need the support!
Seems like my life
by Ivana Molton, age 14, student Parkhill Girls Home, Ontario, Canada 
This book seems like my life.
My brother’s nicer now
by Sandy Corman, age 15
My brother has been so much nicer since he read A Teenager’s Guide to Mind Control.
Now he thinks he’s just like her brother George, you know, wise and mature and the world’s best brother.  It’s really been great for me.
A mental boost
by Adam Poranski
  This book breaks down life lessons in a way that anyone could understand, young and old alike. I was lucky enough to come across this book at a time in my life when I could use a mental boost.    Sometimes life just happens, and you feel just kind of dragged along by it instead of being an active participant. This book reminded me that tough situations are going to happen. You cannot control the inevitable, what you can control is your attitude, and how you perceive things.
The very best friend that you can have is yourself, but that is a decision that you have to make. So why not choose to love yourself?!
Delightful and practical
by Al Reed, Minister, Science of Mind
A
 delightful book with the practical message of how to raise your self-worth and find peace of mind by using your power of choice.
This book is written from the viewpoint of a teenager whose humorous thoughts will make you laugh out loud ….and remember to overcome problems as she does.
