Recent letters from parents

You don’t need anyone telling you that there are challenges in parenting tweens and teens. And if this is your first child to reach this stage of development, you may be feeling totally clueless! (Of course, even if you’ve been here before, chances are that your second or third child is unlike the other(s), so there goes some of might have worked before!)

I’ve been responding to parents’ emails since 1997. Perhaps my answers to their questions will help to you. I hope so!
