Intro by Dr. Skipper
Stress seems to not only be in many facets of adult daily life, but is often a factor in the daily lives of our teens. The National PTA and The American Psychological Association partnered to highlight findings from the APA's 2013 Stress in America Survey. The survey found that 13-17-year-olds are experiencing stress levels higher than they consider to be healthy with more than a quarter of teens reporting the following symptoms: neglecting responsibilities, feeling overwhelmed, having negative thoughts or changes in sleeping habits. In addition, more than a third reported feeling tired, feeling nervous or anxious, or experiencing irritability or anger.

Food Therapy: The Right Diet for ADHD Symptoms
Medication isn't everything — when it comes to treating ADHD symptoms, the right diet can be among the most effective forms of therapy. 

Life is a journey and sometimes we need guidance, someone to help show us the way, or just to help us see the way. The way that is there before us but we just can't quite see...a little nudge here...a little suggestion there.

Some guidance...to make it become clear, to make it easier, to make it better. Guidance to help us be better to our friends, to our family, to ourselves, and most importantly...to our children.
