Worried moms & frazzled dads, look no further! Maybe your child/teen is anxious, worried, sad, angry, or acting out. You've tried empathy, rewards, punishments, extra attention, special privileges. You've read books, consulted parenting blogs, & asked other parents for advice. Whatever you try, it may even work for a few days but then all the old problems come right back. Maybe your boy wants to dress like a girl and it's freaking you out. Maybe your teen declares "I'm queer"--what does that even mean? Let's add the stress of Covid-19, and you're exhausted, frustrated, and worried about your child's future.
