On the Road to Success

(And away from Military School)

At age 14, Brandon Lanksbury’s parents decided to enroll him at Personal Success Systems (PSS) for 2 reasons; One, for fun of learning Tae Kwon Do but more importantly, to change his behavior.

 

We saw an ad about PSS and it seemed to have what we needed to help Brandon improve his self-esteem and behavior, while keeping him interested.

 

We have stuck with PSS because it has changed Brandon completely in one month’s time from a boy with low self-esteem, anger and on the road to self-destruction.  It has given Brandon something in which he can feel good about himself.  Brandon seems less tense, tries harder to do what is required of him: like school work, his chores at home and being respectful to others.

 

Brandon’s past behavior included talking back, getting into fights at school, refusing to do homework or not handing the homework in.  His grades were low.  He was moody, which made the atmosphere around him tense and he was always very down on himself.

 

In about a month at PSS there have been great changes in Brandon’s behavior.  His grades in class went from C’s to A’s and B’s.  Homework is getting in on time and the fighting at school has stopped.  The teachers have informed us that Brandon is taking part in class discussions.  He is getting his chores done and is much more respectful.  We still have some setbacks now and again but the most important change is that Brandon is no longer willing to give up trying to improve, especially when things get tough.  I never thought I would see this from our son.

 

We have supported Brandon’s goals by taking part in the Parent Strategies Meetings at PSS led by Grandmaster Hyong, Ph.D. (where we learn how to change the way we dealt with Brandon’s behavior), family conferences, and being there for his Tae Kwon Do classes whenever possible.  Also, we support him taking part in the other extra activities that the academy offers.

 

PSS program has done wonders for all of us.  I recommend trying the program before sending your child to military school as we thought of doing.  We realized that by choosing to send him to military school, that would’ve sent his a message that we felt he was too out of control and we decided to stop dealing with it.  Giving up wasn’t the way to go.  We are better equipped with skills we have learned here to guide Brandon to feel good about him, and in this, to constantly achieve for raised self-esteem. When Brandon’s self-esteem is high, he is happy and that is the most important thing I want for him.  Don’t you?

 

PSS has helped Brandon learn about self-importance, goal setting and sticking to his goals.  We are currently working on a project on how to be patient!

 

I recommend that if you have a troubled child, try PSS and watch the magic happen.

Update:

We have recently been able to follow up with Mrs. Lanksbury and have found out that Brandon is doing quite well in his life.  He is achieving high marks in college and is even working full time as a manager in the near-by super market to help pay for college.  He is involved in his community and has changed so much for the better.
