Oh, Doc, where were you when...
...I was a teen?! Truly the worst years of my life, which considering I survived a brother's overdose and a husbands suicide, says a lot. I always say I don't know how I made it through those years, basically on my own with parents who trusted me so much, they just didn't pay attention.
I'm on page 230 of Yes, Your Teen is Crazy, and page 165 of Yes, Your Parents are Crazy. These two books are the only books I feel that either group need. Thanks for them both. I'll be sending the latter to my son who's finishing up his 120 days of drug rehab and hope he reads it. At 36, and a single mom to a 15 year old daughter and an almost 18 year old son , I still feel like a teen myself; still trying to figure out who the heck I am. You're books are helping me even at this age to do that and to help my own kids to do it now, instead of way later like me.
I could write pages of pages, and take up hours on your couch, but I just wanted to tell you thank you for venturing out as an author to reach parents and teens in this great time of need. You're awesome!
