David Hoy's New Book: Mental Fitness for Tweens and Teens Available for Order Now!

Seriously folks, our kids are in crisis!
They are more lonely, mentally ill, and prone to self-harm and suicide than ever in our history. Researchers estimate they are three years behind socially and emotionally and not prepared to take on the rigors of high school and life beyond. The best way to ensure your child will thrive is to get ahead of the game and parent for mental fitness. In this book, Dr. Hoy shares his mental fitness framework developed from research and decades of experience working with families and children.
