Welcome to the Empowering Parents Blog, “The Blog for Effective Parenting”. At EP, above all we know what it means to tackle the difficult problems parents face with their children and teens. We’ll be writing about the latest child behavior issues, reporting on trends in parenting, and asking you to give us your take on raising kids. You’ll be happy to hear that James Lehman, MSW and Dr. Bob Myers will be contributing bloggers, in addition to other experts who will stop by to chat about everything from the latest findings on eating disorders to the real story on what’s happening on MySpace.com. Come and check it out, post a comment, join the discussion—we can’t wait to hear from you!
So welcome—we hope you’ll make our blog part of your daily routine in 2008.
