I realize that kelli7 already has this book "Yes, Your Teen is Crazy" by Dr. Michael Bradley, posted in RECOMMMENDATIONS, but this book is SOOO good and helpful I would like to highlight it in DISCUSSIONS because it's that good! I recommend this book to EVERYONE (even parents who aren't there yet)! This book is the best book I ever read with regards to parenting. Not only do I like the humorous approach he uses, (it definitely helps when you have a heavy heart) but he really gives parents confidence on how to parent their adolescents. My husband and I were beside ourselves trying to deal with our youngest son these last few months. He was quickly diving into the deep end and, truthfully, I thought we were in for the long haul. Dr. Michael Bradley's book is what helped us get through it, however, and much faster than my husband and I anticipated! I was,also, fortunate enough to hear him speak recently. He's not only a great writer, and doctor, but an awesome speaker! He blew me away. After his talk, I left with a lighter heart (I laughed during most of his talk) and some direction and, like I said before...confidence. **Note: It also helps he has his own 16 year old son. So please go get this book!

I am new to this group and feel so alone sometimes. I have two sons in the prison system, due to drugs mainly heroin. I have three children and who in the world has two boys this happens to? I question every day, my parenting skills, I am an educator so I know better. Their dad has also used, after our divorce. I honestly, don't know how this will get better, prison system is not right....
