classes for him." With a start like this it's no wonder Ralph had a low self-esteem and didn't relate well to people. In fact Ralph turned out simply to have a different learning style than many of his peers. Today Ralph has his Master's in Engineering and lives a very successful life. "That teacher's words hurt," commented Ralph. "For many years I believed her, but I kept on trying. Now I know that she really didn't know what she was talking about."
Most teens are looking for who they are and take their cues from the labeling statements of those around them
One of the greatest challenges kids face is the thoughtless comments of teachers and peers that color their image of themselves. "Most teens are looking for who they are and take their cues from the labeling statements of those around them," says author and SuperCamp founder Bobbi DePorter. "We teach students how to recognize and reframe hurtful comments and realize this person doesn't shape them, but may just be having a bad day."
DePorter and five of her top SuperCamp facilitators have just released a new book, The Seven Biggest Teen Problems and How to Turn Them into Strengths, to give parents concrete ideas on how to build their child's confidence, as well as deal with the other six most common problems teens will face.
DePorter's The Seven Biggest Teen Problems and How to Turn Them into Strengths; An Inside Look at What Works with Teens from a World Leader in Youth Achievement, goes inside Quantum Learning Network's famed SuperCamp. SuperCamp's 10-day live-in summer camps help kids enhance such academic skills as reading, writing, test/note taking, and memory/study strategies, while developing life skills in the areas of communication, relationships, leadership, self-confidence, goal setting, and motivation. The Wall Street Journal has said, "SuperCamp turns so-so students into academic achievers."
"We teach learning skills that can be applied to any subject and identify the learning style and strategies that work best for each student," said Steve Arrowood, SuperCamp Facilitator and book contributor. "Our courses provide the tools for classroom success while placing an emphasis on increasing confidence, motivation, and personal responsibility and creating direct and lasting results in school

and at home." Those skills are critical in an increasingly competitive landscape where good SAT scores alone do not guarantee the college of your choice. Many students who were feeling inadequate in some way because of an emotional hurt come home from SuperCamp with new freedom and skills to deal with future hurtful comments.
