“As a teenager, I didn’t want to be like my mom. I wanted to be rebellious and wild. I wanted to be a free 80’s kid and wear a skirt shorter than 3 inches above the knee. I wanted to watch MTV all day. And then, on a random Friday night, everything changed.”

Parents, our children’s “misbehaviors” are symptoms of a much deeper problem that can’t be ignored any longer.

“It slams you back to a time when you knew what was important, and what wasn’t.”
“This small thing has literally changed my life, and I hope you remember that as you go on with yours.”
