New Book for Parents Navigating Mental Health for their Kids
If you are a parent that has a son or daughter struggling with mental health issues, Marci Wolff Ober has your back.
The KrazyGirl(& Guy) Parent Survival Guide comes out February 28, 2022.
I can’t wait to get a copy. Full disclosure, Marci was our family therapist when we were navigating help for my son. I trust her wholeheartedly and am cheering her on as she broadens her reach to make a difference to parents everywhere.
Here is the tiktok video (also on instagram) that I originally posted about this subject:
Here is a little bit about this book that we are looking forward to reading:
“It was the dead of winter when fourteen-year-old Courtney ran away from home.
She snapped and rushed from the house in the middle of a family movie night, during a raging snowstorm, after dark in her socks . . .”
Marci believed that her “Krazy” past was far behind, until the torch was unknowingly passed to her daughter, Courtney.
Navigating the road out of KrazyLand as a mom would be the most difficult and important challenge of her life.
Any parent who has stayed up until sunrise, frantically searching the internet for information about their child’s severe mood swings, suicidal thoughts, or other concerning behaviors, will welcome this easy-to-understand and practical guidebook.
Written from three unique and interconnected vantage points—
Marci, a seasoned therapist and warrior mom;
Courtney, a sensitive teen growing up in the social media spotlight;
and an inspiring selection of leading medical and wellness professionals
—The KrazyGirl(& Guy) Parent Survival Guide is the definitive compass and road map out of the darkness, toward a lifetime of satisfying and sustainable mental health and wellness.
