itness BY GEORGE FOREMAN Q . Are there any risks for teen ' bodybuilders, such as stunted growth or hormone manipulation? Or is it just not healthy? JAMES JORDAN, CorvaUis, Ore. Looking back on all the athletes I have known, I find that the ones who started off with some form of bodybuilding have done a little better than the ones who didn't. All sports are good for the young, but supervision is the key. You need to teach youngsters that bodybuilding, just like football, track or gymnastics, is a sport and you need proper teaching. Most important, teens need to realize that taking drugs always leads to a dead end.

This is Chapter One. When kids come to Sylvan Learning Center, we see lots of promise. And pain. Some of them are afraid to speak up in class or even raise their hands. Some hate recess.
