INSTITUTE FOR SELF ESTEEM AND EVALUATION ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH WASHINGTON METRO HIGHWAY SAFETY TASK FORCE

Driving Success Seminars Address the Effects of Self-Esteem on Highway Safety

BOWIE, MD - The Institute for Self Esteem and Evaluation, Inc. (ISEE) has announced a partnership with the Washington Metro Highway Safety Task Force to conduct a series of Self Esteem for Driving Success seminars throughout Prince George’s County. The first session in the workshop series, 30 Minutes That Could Save Your Life will introduce self-esteem skills and driver safety as a necessary partnership to reduce the number of motor vehicle fatalities in Prince George’s County. 

 

Seminar facilitator, ISEE, Inc. Founder and Executive Director Frederick Penn, says low self-esteem can lead to poor decision making both inside and outside of a vehicle.  

“Prince George’s County has more fatalities resulting from motor vehicle crashes than any other jurisdiction in the state of Maryland. I firmly believe low self-esteem can adversely impact a driver’s ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. Additionally, if a driver lacks self-esteem, they could have a higher risk of being involved in a fatal motor vehicle accident. During the workshop series, we will focus on the important issue of self-esteem and its effect on highway safety. Participants are in for a lively and informative session.”

The Washington Metro Region’s Highway Safety Project Director Dana Gigliotti, says self-esteem and its relationship to highway safety, is an issue that deserves further exploration.

“Making good decisions is critical to changing behavior. With 93% of all crashes caused by driver error, changing behavior equals saving lives. We are excited to have Mr. Penn conduct this workshop series because it has the potential to save lives and make our highways safer – this is the ultimate goal.”

 

Founded in 1994, ISEE, Inc. provides customized self-esteem training and coaching programs for parents, students, children and adults geared towards building self-confidence, self-respect, self-worth, self-motivation and self-discipline skills. ISEE is an Internal Revenue Service recognized 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, nonprofit corporation.    

ISEE, Inc. Founder and Executive Director Frederick Penn,teaches, trains and coaches transformational self esteem success skills to professional athletes, teams, entertainers, corporate executives, small business owners, government officials and students of every level.

Frederick Penn & ISEE Inc. 

Asked Oprah, Dr. Phil and America to

Please Stop Saying the Word "Kid" and

Eliminate the Word From Their Vocabulary

Why Does America Need to Eliminate the Word "Kid"?


ISEE Inc. Campaign to Eliminate the Word "Kid"


This is the first time the Washington DC Metropolitan Area has Frederick Penn, a Transformational Self-Esteem Expert and Executive Director of the Institute for Self Esteem & Evaluation (ISEE), Inc., explaining why America needs to eliminate saying the word "Kid".  This form of self-esteem discussion on the word "Kid" has never been presented or offered.

Do you understand the origin of the word?

Female goats are referred to as does or nannies, males as bucks or billies; their offspring are kids.

Are you aware of why and how the word was used?


During the Dark Ages of England, little children roamed the streets competing with cats, dogs, goats, rats and anything hungry for something to eat.  Just like the goats, children would put anything in their mouth!  Goats are willing to eat almost anything. Their reputation for doing so is most likely due to their intensely inquisitive nature.  Goats, like children will explore anything new or unfamiliar in their surroundings. 

Children behaved just like goats fighting for food and the adults treated them like little goats and other animals searching desperately for food in the streets, alleys and garbage.  Adults would often describe children as little hungry goats willing to eat anything to stay alive.  So began calling children "Kids".

Why does the word "Kid" degrade children?

America isn't aware, unconscious and seemingly lacks the understanding of the impact and responsibility of the words adults say to and about children.  

From age's birth to 18, parents and adults must be more aware of the power and influence of the words they say to and about children.  Their words create, determine and direct the life path of children.   Words have a direct negative or positive impact that causes an emotional effect on the feelings, thoughts and actions of children.  ISEE, Inc. is campaigning to use words that build self-esteem when we speak to and about children.

The word "Kid" is used as adult slang.  Why not replace the word "Kid" with children, boys & girls, youth, youngsters, young people, teens or teenagers?

America's habit of calling children "kids" is disrespectful to children.  My question to America is:  What does the child gain or benefit from being called a "kid"?

America: Why are you still using the word?

I believe America thinks the word is cute and only innocent slang.  America is unaware of the negative history and meaning of the word "kid".

Do you understand why we need to campaign to eliminate the word?

What good does the word create? 

Why keep calling children "kids"? 

The word has never had a positive meaning for children.  


 

Now is the time to eliminate the word "Kid"

Frederick Penn & ISEE Inc. says,
Jesse Jackson Needs to Bury his
"Keep Hope Alive" Slogan!

Nationwide - Hope is the great illusion in Black America of what might be someday. We must eliminate the words hope, maybe, tomorrow, soon, one day, sometime and the big one, SOMEDAY. Use NOW.

Hope, so highly praised by Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and other civil rights advocates must understand that the term "Keep Hope Alive" has neither value nor meaning to conscious, transformed people that are no longer afraid to live a positive, high self-esteem life.

Penn receives self-esteem questions and requests from families and institutions globally.

Penn, says, we must give up the word hope. Were saying things like, I hope this works, I hope I have enough money, I hope I get a job. I hope things get better. Civil rights leaders and the Black church are teaching people to hope that someone or something will save you, take care of you, change your life, make you happy and bring you what you want. We hope and we wait, but it never shows up. Does it?  What we need to do is drop hope and pick-up action.

Examine this for yourself and see how hope is an illusion that produces the very feeling of desperation and loneliness that we seek to avoid. Also, see how it causes self-doubt and fear.

Urban-America is a prisoner of HOPE

We have become prisoners of our hope. Hope is what keeps all suffering in place. Hope is the expectation that something outside of yourself, something or someone external, is going to come to your rescue and you will live happily ever after. And it's that little rush of hope that keeps you going from one disappointment to another, because it keeps people from taking responsibility and taking action.

Letting go of hope can be a difficult experience at first, because if you believe that there is no hope, you think, How am I going to survive?  The fact that nothing or no one outside of yourself will save you is the truth.

In the beginning, this truth is difficult to accept, but after you have accepted it, something interesting begins to happen.  It becomes freeing. You can finally stop waiting for someone or something that was never going to show up anyway.

Once you give up hope and stop asking a source outside of yourself to deliver something that they cannot deliver, there is a dynamic shift in your relationship to Life. You begin to choose advancement instead of avoidance and you become responsible for the quality of your own life.

As long as you believe in hope, you are a prisoner of your own hope.  Its only when you become hopeless that you will take responsibility for your life.

Urban-America Must Give Up Hope for ACTION

We want to train ourselves to give up hope and take action now. There's only one way that you are going to find out for sure what's right for you and that's by taking action. You can think about what you want, you can speculate about it, you can gather all the facts and you can ponder the possibilities for the rest of your life, but you will never know for sure until you do it, until you take action.

Sometimes getting started is difficult. Its the Law of Inertia. Any object at rest takes as much or greater amount of energy to move that when it is already in motion. The best advice I can share with you again is to do something. Make a decision, even if its the wrong decision. Whatever you do, it will be better than sitting and hoping things will improve or change.

Once you've told your subconscious that you have done everything that you can do, trust it to take care of the rest. It knows what to do because it is connected to our GOD Conscious. Begin by knowing that you have already arrived, that at the Being level you already have everything that you need. You are already a success. You are already healthy. You are already rich. Live your dreams, experience unconditional love and enjoy the magnificence of your own spirit Being.

How many times have you been told that you can do it or that you can have it all. And yet, as you read the words, there's another loud voice in your head that says, I can't do it.  In my case its different. I'm not able to. Its too difficult. I'm afraid. What will they say?  What if it doesn't work? What if I make a mistake? This is the same loud voice that has robbed you of achieving your innermost desires. You don't have to listen to that voice. That's not the Real You. That's not your Real Self. That's your ego and your past conditioning. It's your old programmed tapes playing.

Make a conscious decision NOW to program new thoughts, new ideas and beliefs. Black people, you are in control. You are the one who can choose what you want to think and what you want to believe.

Its time to bury HOPE and birth ACTION NOW!

Actress Lynn Whitfield Starring In Tyler Perry's Madea's Family Reunion Snubs Frederick Penn and His "A Mother's Power" Non-Profit - ISEE, Inc.

Frederick Penn, Executive Director of ISEE, Inc.

Lynn Whitfield, actress accused of snubbing Frederick Penn and his ISEE, Inc. organization

Nationwide (BlackNews.com) - Institute for Self Esteem & Evaluation (ISEE), Inc. a tax-exempt nonprofit with over 5,000 African-American adults wanted to honor Ms. Lynn Whitfield with a special recognition event for her role in Tyler Perry's latest movie in February 2006.

Unfortunately, it took Ms. Papadoupoulos, her publicist four months to tell the organization that Ms. Whitfield said she was too busy to acknowledge the invitation with a letter, an e-mail or a two-minute thank you call.

The members, friends and supporters of the Institute for Self Esteem & Evaluation (ISEE), Inc. located in Bowie, MD are upset and disappointed with Lynn's seemingly indifferent and insensitive attitude toward their invitation.

It was Frederick Penn, Executive Director's idea to honor Ms. Whitfield. When asked why he wanted the event, Penn said that Lynn Whitfield epitomizes class, elegance, style, taste, chic, intelligence and sophistication for African-Americans - and she's beautiful. "I wanted our organization to honor and thank her for the positive image and self esteem that she demonstrates," he added.

Penn has placed more than 100 calls, e-mails and faxes since October 2005 to her staff in New York City and Los Angeles. The five month "Find Whitfield Marathon" has been going on and on and on. Because of the ISEE, Inc. organization's national members love and respect for Ms. Whitfield, the majority of the members asked Mr. Penn to continue to attempt to honor her.

Frederick Penn has sent e-mails, faxes and spoken several times with her agent Ken Lee in NYC, with her previous agent Richie Jackson and staff, her manager Danielle Allman and receptionist Tracie in LA, and Christina Papadoupoulos, her publicist. Penn had also been in contact with Kerry Brown in NYC who referred him to Kevin A. Perkins in Baltimore, MD and Jennifer Dart in Washington, DC.

...AND PENN STILL HASEN'T HAD DIRECT COMMUNICATION WITH LYNN WHITFIELD

President Bill Clinton was asked why did he always stop to shake hands and acknowledge the public He said he would never be to busy to give the public a minute. Hopefully, Ms. Whitfield, who we respect and admired as a mother, actress and woman; will understand the importance of a simple, sincere thank you to those that support her and want only the best for her career and family.

What is "A Mother's Power" Event at the Institute for Self Esteem & Evaluation (ISEE), Inc

"Crime in the inner city, poor grades, violence in public schools and lack of adult responsibility can change," Penn says. He believes that his organization ISEE, Inc. will teach mothers how to use a life changing method to develop the self-esteem, positive behavior and constructive habits for their children, spouse, family and friends.

Mothers are unaware of their God spirit ability to create, determine and direct the life path of their children from ages birth to 18, according to transformational self-esteem expert Frederick Penn.

Mothers aren't aware, unconscious and lack the understanding of the impact and responsibility of the words they speak to and about their children.

Penn teaches mothers two important transformational self esteem skills that he says all mothers must understand how to develop and speak in order to have safe communities.

1. Mothers will learn how to be self-confident, self-reliant and how to speak from this positive spirit.

2. Mothers will learn how to communicate and instill self-confidence, self-reliance and positive spirit powers in the lives of their children, spouse and friends.

"Our mothers must begin with themselves, because you can't give away something you don't have and teach something you don't know," Penn says.

Frederick Penn is the controversial Executive Director of the Institute for Self Esteem & Evaluation (ISEE), Inc located in Bowie, MD. He teaches a series of what he calls life changing events, workshops and seminars called "A Mother's Power" and The Dark Side of Hip Hop to women's and mens groups, middle - high schools, corporations, church organizations and male & female inmates in prison.

The transformational self-esteem series has never been presented or made available to urban-America.

Frederick Penn has produced his own radio shows on WOL-AM in Washington, DC & Maryland, has newspaper articles written about his work, appeared on TV News and has been heard nationally on over 100 radio talk shows.

He has received community service awards from Prince George's County Executive Jack Johnson and recognized by the States Attorney Glenn Ivey.

Parents Have Power To Fix County's Woes

by Ms. Linda Phelps - Community Spirit -Faith & Action

I listened with interest to a local radio show recently after listeners were invited to call in the discussion turned to what is happening to the youth in the county and the horrendous murder rate.

Just about every adult that called seemed to echo the same sentiment parents being less of a friend and being a parent.

People realize that it is time to stop passing the buck and that is great. One thing is clear we have to begin to reach our children while they are young. Churches, businesses, individuals should aggressively be trying to mentor to children in elementary school because lets face it by the time children are in middle and high school behaviors are set. It only makes sense that if children are only functionally literate by the time they reach middle school that it will be an uphill battle to get and retain good grades in school.

Throughout my childs school years I realized the importance of keeping a close eye on the progress he made at school. I knew when an assignment was not turned in or if there was a problem with his paying attention in class. I will admit that some teachers were more communicative than others, but it did not keep me from persevering to achieve a regular basis of communication with them. I used e-mail and the telephone as my main methods of communication and thankfully I was able to use vacation time if necessary to make a visit to the school if it was needed.

Every teacher in Prince Georges County Public Schools has an e-mail address to make it easier to keep an open line of communication with your childs teacher. If you dont have a computer, call your childs teacher to find out how they are doing. And, parents, tell teachers that you want to be notified as soon as there might be a concern. By working together to tackle educational or discipline concerns, class rooms will be a better place of learning for everyone.

A short time ago I was contacted by one of our readers, Frederick Penn, regarding an article I wrote in December titled, Parents must take responsibility for their children.

Penn is the founder and executive director of the Institute of Self Esteem and Evaluation (ISEE Inc.), a self-awareness institution that teaches students, parents, adults and educators academic assertiveness, self-confidence, self-respect, self-love, self-motivation and self-discipline skills.

Penn and I talked about the concept of mothers having the power to make positive changes in Prince Georges County. He said that many mothers are unaware of their ability to create, determine and direct the life path of their children.

Penn said his challenge is to take these concepts and make them understandable and usable so they are not just put on the theory shelf or in the concept corner and never get any attention.

My proposed program will help mothers learn how to be self-confident and self-reliant, and help them instill values in their children, spouse and friends.

For more information on ISEE Inc., call 301-306-1600 or visit the Web site www.iseeinc.org.

Lets face it, there is no panacea for some of the ills facing Prince Georges County right now. One of the first steps in solving a problem is facing and naming it. Then one can focus energy and efforts to finding a solution.

If you are a church or business that has adopted a school, I would like to hear from you.

CAN MOTHERS LEARN SELF-ESTEEM TO ELIMINATE CRIME IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS

Bowie Institute Plans Women's Empowerment Program

The Bowie Star - A Prince George's County Gazette Newspaper

E-Mail This Article | Print This Story

by Marcus Ngbea

Staff Writer For The Bowie Star

The founder of the Institute of Self-Esteem and Evaluation (ISEE.Inc.) said he plans to help stop the violence in Prince George's County. Frederick Penn's method is to teach mothers how to develop self-esteem and improve communication with their children. If this could be done, Penn believes the senseless killing occurring among young people can be reduced.

Penn's plan will take him to Prince George's, the District and Baltimore City.

"Mothers are unaware of their God spirit ability to create, determine and direct the life path of their children," he said.

"Crime in the inner city, poor grades, violence in public schools and lack of adult responsibility can change," said Penn, who is executive director of ISEE.Inc.

The proposed program will help mothers learn how to be self-confident and self-reliant, and help them instill values in their children, spouse and friends, Penn said. "The reason I'm focusing on the mothers is because they are the ones raising the children of inner-city youth," he said.

Penn said that eventually, he is hoping to take the program to the 100 largest school districts in America, but his first stop is Prince George's.

A study of 1998 statistics conducted by analysts of the Heritage Foundation's Center for Data Anaylsis (CDA) found that approximately one in every 12 black, 15-year-old males who live in the District can expect to be murdered before reaching age 45, CDA stated.

Penn said he would be discussing his proposed program with County Executive Jack Johnson, and with Sheila Johnson, co-founder of BET and president of the Washington Mystics. The proposal includes Washington Mystics players serving as role models for youth.

"The players would be presenting self-confidence and self-esteem [lectures] at local middle schools and high schools," Penn said.

Penn said he already has presented self-esteem programs to youngsters in detention centers and on probation, and to young men and women in alcohol and drug prevention programs.

This Program Stops Crime in the African-American Community - So Why No Media Attention


Parents meeting to request having transformational self esteem training at their school.

Nationwide (BlackNews.com) - The Institute for Self Esteem & Evaluation (ISEE), Inc., a radical transformational self esteem program for the African-American community, does what parents, teachers, community leaders, and even the police has not been successful in doing, stop crime.

Why hasn't this program been visible as of late One community leader goes off the record to state and proclaims, "There is money in crime. And the government does not want crime to be eradicated, so programs that are successful like this one does not get the media attention that it so well deserves." Countless youth letters continue to pour in as testimony to ISEE, Inc's very effective program. Here is an example of one heart felt student's testimony. This letter reads:

---------------------------------------------------------
Dear Mr. Penn,

First I would like to start off by saying you have really changed my life. When I entered your classroom, I had been through and experienced many things. But you have taught me and have helped me to bring myself a long way. You have taught me how to say "I" and think about myself first and always.

If I hadn't taken the time to go through your class, I don't know where I would be. You taught us a lot about our past and gave us a good idea about our future. You taught me about weight control; and at first I felt offended about it but then I cam to realize that it doesn't matter what everyone else thinks, this is about and to help me. You have made me come to realize that I am an important person and how to always hold my head up.

So in closing, I would like to say thank you, and I don't know how many times I can say thank you.

But again, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

Sincerely,

Adelle
---------------------------------------------------------

Letters such as these continue to pour in for the ISEE, Inc. organization. This organization has garnered support not only from African-American teenagers, but from school districts, from mayors, from government officials.

Why this program hasn't gained the media attention, is what continues to be the underlying rumble in the African-American community.

Mr. Penn, the executive director of this powerful organization describes this program, "At the root of ISEE is an unreasonable idea to eliminate crime in urban America. Our unreasonable ideas are usually met with rejection, disbelief and resistance, initially. But after the program is implemented, the teenagers, the schools, the local government officials are really in total awe of how effective we are."

Mr. Penn continues, "We will not allow the silence from the media to stop us from making the changes in urban America that need to be made."

The Institute for Self Esteem & Evaluation (ISEE), Inc. (www.iseeinc.org) located in Bowie, Maryland is a self-awareness institution, teaching urban students academic assertiveness, self-confidence, self-respect, self-love, self-motivation and self-discipline skills which helps to eliminate crime in urban America.

The story of Coach Ken Carter epitomizes the goals and vision of our skills program designed to build tomorrow's urban-American leaders, says course instructor Frederick Penn, the dynamic and controversial Founder and Executive Director of the Institute For Self-Esteem & Evaluation (ISEE), Inc. in Bowie, MD. Establishing pride in one's self, their environment, family, school, relationships, work and values creates a person who can become an asset rather than a liability to society.

A New Way for a New Day, presented by ISEE, begins Jan. 11 and comprises six 90-minute weekly classes from 3:45 PM to 5:15 PM, Tuesdays that teach students and parents how to make positive and effective life choices and improve their overall success in life. Graduation happens the end of February for participating students, aged 8 to 18, and their parents.

The ISEE program is designed to address the alarming lack of urban-American leaders and a preponderance of bleak outlooks, especially among our school-aged children, says Penn. We implement the process that builds leadership skills, confidence and vision among our participants. We teach them how to rise above the gravity of negative emotions to succeed. Through ISEE, we encourage potential leaders to look up to the sky and know that the far reaches of space are their only limits.

Students may attend without parents. Register directly at the school at 1300 Campus Way North, Mitchellville, MD or call 301-808-4040 and ask for Ms. Rosemond. Register before Jan. 10 to receive the movie bonus.

Coach Carter, produced by Paramount Pictures and MTV, premieres Jan. 14 on Martin Luther King's birthday.

BOWIE, MARYLAND: Working with our children and youth is not only a rewarding experience, but also a critical need and responsibility, says Frederick Penn, Founder and Executive Director of the Institute For Self-Esteem & Evaluation (ISEE), Inc. in Bowie, MD. The elements of society that give a continued negative impact on their daily lives, creates a level of psychological and spiritual erosion that diminishes the self-esteem, self-confidence, pride and character that our youth possess, as a natural part of their individualism.
