I’ve never met a family who wants to come to a Families in Crisis Conference, but I’ve met all that have come express how they were glad they did.  This conference is designed for a small group of parents who understand that if the behavior pattern of their teen continues, serious trouble lies ahead.  So they come, hoping to gain new insights and gather some new tools for their parenting toolbox to change the direction their family structure.  Make plans to attend the upcoming Families in Crisis Conference to be held June 26th – 28th at the Hearlight Conference Center in Longview, Texas.  You can find out more information and register by calling 903.668.2173 or by visiting www.FamilyCrisisRetreat.com.
