 Other Parenting Resources

Each of the following are great resources for parents of exceptionally tough kids. Though I do not specifically endorse any of these people, programs, or resources, I do believe they all have good ideas. None of them, however, have all the right answers that work for everyone. Each has their own strengths, style, and approach. I recommend searching many of them to find what works for you.
If you know of other resources that would be helpful for parents of children who struggle with intense emotional and behavior challenges, feel free to contact me and share.
