So happy to find this forum
I've been swearing by "Yes, Your Teen is Crazy" since I found it about two years ago. I've gifted it to several friends who have teens and they've been thankful for it, too.
I'm a stay-at-home mom to three kids: my 15 yr old son, 11 yr old daughter and 1 yr old baby daughter. My older kids are from a previous relationship. My husband and I have been married for almost 3 years and our daughter is his only biological child. We have all of the challenges that go along with being a blended family even though my husband has been a part of our lives since I was 6 months pregnant with my son. Unfortunately, our relationship has been of the "off-and-on" nature for 12 of the last 15 years (when we finally got married in 2005).
I don't have any current issues that I'm struggling with, but that can change on a dime, for sure. I just wanted to introduce myself because I'm so glad to have found this community.
Thanks, Dr. Mike, for creating it and for sharing your experience and wisdom.
