    Dear Sue,

    Your book, Wit's End, needed to be written and you were the best person to do so.

    Your experience with your daughter, the seriously flawed treatment facility, and your innocence about it, make you an expert. We need to honor you because you've done the research to help other parents make good choices.

    Congratulations on your daughter's success.


    Jean Tracy,

    Sue Scheff

    Thank you so much for sharing my story. So many parents are at their wit's end and feel as if they are alone in their struggles. Today teen's have a sense of entitlement--and unfortunately don't respect parents the way generations prior. Parent's shouldn't be ashamed if they have to reach out for help. Not giving your teen a second opportunity at a bright future is not being a responsible parent. Thanks again for sharing my story.... I hope parents know there is hope and sometimes typical teen behavior is more than we have to accept.
