the family i have been with for 3 yrs. their mother moved to VT to be with her significate other . another woman and the children feel abandoned. and her being on limited income it is hard for her to get her children from MO to VT. of course this situation there is contention between parents which effects the children. it has come to the point the welfare has stepped in for the father needs to learn parenting skills and the children need to learn coping skills for anger. and Dr. James Dobson said teens need more supervison then young children and at 62 and what i have seen i think he is right. daughter's really need their father in there lives if they are excepted to have healthy relationships with men when they get older.

there is one concept that came from  abstence program where the father takes daughter on date and talks to her about sex and waiting for the right man and gives her a ring of promise to wait and the mother takes son out and does the same thing. and they say statistics shows it really helps and they have better self esteem. good luck and do a lot of research and u have the internet to help and dont be ashamed to call your local mental health center for advice.smile
