Product Description

What's the difference between an ordinary teenager and an extraordinary one? A great deal, as sought-after youth speaker John Bytheway points out in his latest book for teens.

In his usual lively manner John Bytheway draws useful contrasts between typical and better-than-typical teenage attributes and invites readers to rise above the ordinary. After all, being extraordinary is just being ordinary with a little “extra!”

Ordinary Teens
It's easy to push the buttons of ordinary teens. That's because they give away the remote to their feelings. They say things like, “He makes me so mad" or “She drives me crazy.” If someone walking down the hall doesn't say “Hi,” ordinary teens act as if someone just pointed a remote at them and pushed “be depressed.”
Extraordinary Teens
Extraordinary teens control themselves. They're not controlled by others. Not even remotely. They keep their control inside. They realize that the things others do may influence them but not control them. They can channel their feelings, lower the volume of outside voices, or mute them altogether. They have the power. They hold their own remote.
