the equation, and what’s left is a strong support network."
   
Dr. Chen also adds that what attracted him to the books was the underlying message of empowerment for children: "… one of the most important things we can do for our children is to teach them to have respect and responsibility for themselves and for their family."

Each book contains a one-page pledge that kids are encouraged to follow using only their signature to themselves as the binding element. Because the underlining focus of the books are empowerment and responsibility, the Pledge states, "This is a promise I make to myself and for myself, because I really do understand why I need to do this stuff." No parents need to add their signatures for acknowledgment or approval. No witnesses are necessary.
   
The Pledge also contains a running commentary from the kid’s perspective, "I also pledge to drop the power struggle with my parents over these issues because I understand that they have my best interests in mind — even if they don’t always act like it. Besides, constantly struggling with them is counterproductive to my health, well-being and future goals, whatever they may be."

"The conflict takes away my energy, my focus, and my enjoyment of things. So I will work at going with the flow. This I promise. And when I slip up, which I know I will, I’ll work at not making it my folks fault: I’ll own up to it, and strive to do better. I owe it to them and I owe it to myself. This I promise."
   
As demonstrated in The Pledge, each 6" x 9" book in the series is written from a kid’s perspective and printed in eye-catching full color. Titles include: "16 Things Kids Can Do … To Keep Their Parents Off Their Backs and Out of Their Bathrooms" (Book Topic: Health); "16 Things Kids Can Do &hel
