Back to school is the often the craziest and most hectic time of the year. This is true for both students and parents. There are many reasons for this.

 There is a youth sub-culture, defined not only by its systematic hostility to dominant culture, but also by its emotional manifestation of seldom expression. Today’s culture and social environments are riddled with countless negative agents. Amongst these agents are things like bullying, school stress, sex, peer pressure, family issues -- the...

The most important factor we need to concern ourselves with when working with teens is our ability to establish trust.

You read this article and then comment whether or not you agree and why – everyone benefits. Sometimes we find ourselves caught up in a situation that we don’t realize we could’ve prevented had we simply gone...

Life has a masterful way of putting things into perspective for us. No matter how bad things can get, or how good things are right now -- there’s an overriding factor that either carries us through, or drops us into free fall. That factor is different for all of us.

But you know what, whose life are you living? Because if...
