Please note, after years of providing free advice, I now require a donation (the amount is up to you) prior to answering your question. Questions from parents who are noticing changes in their adolescent and think problems may be brewing, questions regarding specific problems they are already experiencing, information on warning signs if they think their child may be having problems, questions regarding fighting with parents, sibling rivalry, school problems, addiction problems, relationship issues (eg their child is in a relationship and parent has concerns), and anything else you can think of.

I can answer questions about raising happy, successful children. The two are synonymous. I would love to help you help your child find his passion or strength, how to encourage your child and give her opportunities, and discuss the importance of failure, perseverance, and resilience. If you have questions about how to get your child to believe in herself or how to parent versus being her friend, I can help. I can answer questions about how to model the right behaviors for your child, and what those behaviors might be for your specific situation. I also can help you deal with excuses: excuses you may be making for your child as well as excuses he is making for himself.

I can answer most question regarding the raising of teens. Since my personal experience has been raising 13 foster sons and an adopted son, I am stronger talking about parenting male teens and young adults. When it comes to teen problems and how to parent them, I am equally well versed with male and female issues. I am also very strong answering substance abuse and addiction issues, teen dating drama, questions about sex and questions relating to same sex issues and concerns.

I work with teens and parents on a weekly basis. I have learned that one way of parenting doesn't fit every teen. Being able to be flexible and a good listener can really cultivate a great relationship between a parent and teen. I will give you a no-nonsense pratical way to help your relationship

My own dysfunctional youth in an alcoholic family helped me decide to raise my children with love, acceptance, and honesty. It must have worked. We`ve got terrific kids. Those I've answered on this site usually feel I've been helpful in their unique situations. Our world is so much better when we lift instead of crushing. Every child is worth more than any bank can hold. If I can help at all, it will be in teaching both parent and child of their own personal value to humanity, and how to punch through the noise of the moment to find their greater purpose. Together, we can all make a better world.

I can address questions about parenting teens - from the perspective of a Mental Health Professional, Special Education teacher, Parent & Teacher Trainer, Mother, and Grandparent. Kinds of teen problems include academics, development, emotions, behavior, profanity, respect, sibling issues, parent-child issues, laziness, defiance, sex, drugs, alcohol, smoking, violence, unlawfulness, and issues related to family and societal values. My expertise stems from a lifetime of living in solution - I seek to understand challenges and find ethical and effective strategies that are based on a firm foundation of brain-based developmental principles and common sense child-rearing.
