I don't appreciate the blame on the school system for kids not having common sense to be prepared to be on their own. that's a parenting problem!

I’m loving your podcasts & really trying to decide if I need to join the academy. However, I know for a fact I have more of a husband problem than kid problem. Our marriage has a lot of issues, outside of the kids.
