As a Family Practice physician it is wonderful to have a place to send parents and family who are struggling with extreme parenting struggles for REAL support. Because, yes, I can counsel patients on medications and put in referrals and treat patients as best I can...but THIS page offers true 'I've been there' support through real life stories and beautiful encouraging words. HIGHLY recommend her writing and teaching.
