Indiana: We Salute You!

Apparently Bill Stanczykiewicz, who directs the Indiana Youth Institute, is hot stuff. His Monday column from Indianapolis is creating a bit of heat here in sleepy Leucadia. Bill was very kind in his assessment of Ten Things We Should Never Say to Kids, which is free, and Raising Adults , which is cheap (but never tawdry).

So, thanks Bill!

Meanwhile, I've been quietly helping Mark Matlock develop Real World Parents to launch in 2009.

And did I mention Rich Van Pelt and I are doing a six-hour extravaganza at Youth Specialties' three National Youth Workers Conventions in Sacramento, Pittsburgh and Nashville this fall? Good times, and I'm not kidding.

Back to Indiana, I'm scheduled to present workshops — on crisis intervention and Ten Things We should Never Say to Kids — at the Indiana Youth Institute's 2008 Kids Count in Indiana Conference
 the first week of December.

Also, I had parents when I was younger, so...if that doesn't make me an expert, I don't know what would.
