Teen Advice
13-19. So many things to deal with in those years: Dating, Relationships, Sex, Parents, Body Image, Sexuality, Depression, Stress, Pressure, and that's only the beginning. We're here because we've felt the same things, we've thought about the same things, maybe we asked about these things, maybe we wanted to ask about these things. Regardless of why we're here, we are, and we are ready to respond to whatever it is that's on your mind.

Pre-Teen Advice
12 and Under. Why do people insist on separating the pre-teens from the teens? What's a year or two? Right? Maybe you have a point. But people who do separate the two groups also have a point. Something changes in those couple of years. You might not feel it, you might not see it, you might not understand it, but it's there. It's a tiny change that seems to make a big difference to people. We've been through it. We know your needs are the same, yet different. We understand the mixed messages being sent to you. We're here to help you sort things out.

Parenting Advice
You have a child. Your child could be 3 or could be 25. Now, before you go asking us a question, ask yourself, are you looking for parental advice or parenting advice? Parental advice is that type of advice you give to your children. "Don't put all your eggs in one basket." "Don't talk to strangers." "Be true to yourself and follow your dreams." Parenting advice, on the other hand, is advice given to parents on how to deal with their children. We can provide parental or parenting advice, but let's just say that we're better equipped as non-parents to offer our unique perspective on parenting advice, not parental advice.

Adult Advice
You're probably 20 or over. You don't have a kid...or if you do, you're looking for advice that doesn't have anything to do with him/her. As youth, we're pretty intuitive. We look at the world as youth. And perhaps you're looking for that refreshing look at the issues you are facing.
