Empowered YOUth is the heartfelt story of Michael and Jeffrey Eisen, who rose up from a tumultuous, emotional past to come together in a loving, respectful relationship as father and son, coach and student. Through this engaging narrative, they provide a refreshing perspective on how parents and kids can work together to empower one another by opening the channels of communication, dissolving fear, and surrendering the need for control.
With a perfect balance of moving stories, applied learning, and practical wisdom, Empowered YOUth offers guidance for parents, young people, educators, and anyone seeking a more empowered life. While adults will instantly relate to Jeffrey’s struggle to connect with his children, provide for his family, and listen to his own heart’s desire, young people will love Michael’s honest and emotional examination of an angst-? lled childhood that was laden with stress, sadness, isolation, and self-in? icted pressure.
Through this story of a relationship that has been broken apart and put back together, Jeffrey and Michael provide inspiration for those looking to empower the next generation in a more loving, open, and intuitive way.

Michael and Jeffrey Eisen close the so-called "generation gap," proving that the human connection (and spirit) are ageless. As a parent, I was inspired by this story of how a father and son went from divided to united through transformational work, reinventing their family and creating a template for those of us who want to experience love, not struggle, in all our closest relationships. With young people facing greater challenges than ever, this work is a timely must-read to consciously raise the next generation.-Ophira Edut, The AstroTwins (www.astrostyle.com), author of Body Outlaws, and founder of www.loveyourbody.org
