I came across this really controversial article on a parenting website recently and I wanted to find out what other mothers of teens thought about it.

What would you say to a Harvard-trained psychologist who told you that your twelve or thirteen-year-old should be allowed to drive, get married, drink alcohol, and join the military and vote, among other things? Well, I thought the same thing until I read The Case Against Adolescence: Rediscovering the Adult in Every Teen and then talked with Dr. Robert Epstein. Believe it or not, much of what he said regarding teens made sense to me.

Thank you so much for this posting. I had an idea about my problem areas and they were reconfirmed by taking the free parenting test offered. Now, I have some clues on what to address with my counselor. I've also earmarked some of his books to buy, along with others in my problem areas.
