Group Description

This forum serves as a dialogue for parents raising teenagers and is an exchange of ideas and frustrations, as well as a place to express sometimes experienced anger (perhaps more than sometimes). It is moderated by Irv West who has worked with struggling teens (and their struggling parents) for more than 40 years, and is the author of "Breaking the Rules: A fresh approach to building on the strength and courage of our struggling youth."

Whatever problems you are encountering, whatever roadblocks you experience, be assured that there are many others who have climbed that same mountain and arrived at the other side unharmed. Parenting is not easy... more so with a teen. So speak out openly, honestly, and we will get through it together. You can also contact Irv directly (and in confidence) at: www.irvwestyouthadvocate.com. Hit "contact" on the top of the page.

Finally, if you blindly assume that your health practitioner, your school, or any other agency is helping, we have to talk. Soon! If it has been suggested that your teen needs psychotropic medication, we also need to talk. Sooner.

Together, we will help our youth of today become fulfilled, happy, and self-assured adults of tomorrow. Believe, and it will be so.
