Have you ever had anyone step up for you out of deep Love and concern? I'm talking about when you really needed it! My colleague and I discussed this topic at length before writing "Blazing Eyes" because we were inspired by the acts of several of our students who had informed us about a friend or a loved one involved in illegal drug activity! Fortunately, for most cases, it was resolved smoothly. In this book, we devote one chapter to the counseling process and role to depict how counselors may be of great service at a school site for students, parents, teachers, and the community.
As we all know, attending school in itself can be a monumental stressor for some children depending on their academic levels, social integration, and or depending on parental involvement. If a student is struggling with any of these issues, they may be more prone to be vulnerable to want to escape or cope due to the psychological pressure it may cause. Unfortunately, one method of escape for many teens is the use of illegal drugs. For all intense purposes, most teens do not want to get involved in using drugs if they don't have to, but again, if they don't feel that they have a proper support system in place at home or at school, they usually fall into that type of activity.
Our main character, Kenny, quickly recognized that his older brother had all of a sudden started acting very different around him and his parents. He no longer wanted to hang out with them, was out late, didn't care about homework, and had red blazing eyes most of the time. He didn't want to make too much of it, but after he attended a drug awareness assembly at his school, he had a huge suspicion that his brother was smoking marijuana. He had all the signs that his counselor told him a person would have while under the influence of pot.
With unconditional Love, He immediately went into action and found the courage to inform people that would help! It's an easy yet inspirational read for everyone...
Our goal is for our book to inspire other students to do the same! You can find it on our website www.maxpower2u.com.
With that said, "Put a little MaxPower into your life!"
