    Dear Janet,

    Thank you for your excellent insights.

    I agree that Sue Scheff's Wits End is a great resource.

    For me, if I notice bad behaviors from my teen, I sometimes tell myself that it's just normal for their age and that being rebellious is okay. But there is a certain point wherein you need to take action and do something about those bad behaviors and not just simply tolerate it. I am glad I have found this. I have learned a lot.

    Thanks for your important reply, Sue. You and your daughter have shared your story and the dangers some solutions provide. You've also been proactive in providing solutions that do work. We owe you our gratitude.

    With warm wishes,

    Thank you so much for sharing my story. When parents are struggling with a defiant teen, they can feel like they are at their wit's end - alone and hopeless. My goal is that my story will help parents know there are options for at risk teens. Don't be a parent in denial - be proactive. It is a parent's responsibility to do what is in the best interest of their child. Thanks again for sharing my story.
