Fun to Talk with & Drug-Free

Barbara, we really appreciate your help and support! Brett did get accepted at CSU… His maturity has increased about ten-fold and he seems to be hanging in there with academics, roommate, dorm food, etc. We continue to randomly test him for marijuana and it’s been negative. What’s been the highlight for us is that he can actually carry on a conversation and is fun to be around… He even initiates “texting” us almost on a daily basis just to say “hi” or ask what we’re up to.

Thanks again, Barb Palmer

Back on Track in High School

I’m pleased to report that my 14-year-old daughter is once again applying herself in school. No more arguing and her grades are back on track.

No Longer Angry & Feel Great

It feels great to no longer explode when my emotions want to get the better of me. I wanted so badly to have a good relationship with my daughters and now I do! I will continue to use the tools you gave me to keep from back-sliding. Thank you for your guidance.

I am a Mom to four biological children and four stepchildren, and I have subscribed to many different parenting newsletters, but your One Minute Parent is the only one I actually read because it is so short. Somehow you pack so much information - that is really usable and enlightening - into that one minute. Thank you so much for you have really helped my beautiful blended family!
