Testimonials: "My Aspergers Teen" Parenting Program

It has been 4 weeks since we purchased the e-book and implemented the strategies. THANK YOU!! We have a calmer and peaceful home again. Our daughter responded just as you outlined in the book, I was amazed at how accurately you depicted the expected behavior week by week. Job well done!! Several days into the first week, she told me she didn't like my new behavior and wanted to know why I wasn't raising my voice at her or arguing anymore. It surprised me that she responded this way. Week 2 was rough, she brought out all the claws, fangs, horns, you name it and tried everything to get us mad, bend the rules, etc. My husband and I almost broke during that week, but we did our best to keep the "poker face". We are all doing much better and I thank you again!! I plan to purchase more of your e-books in the near future. Have a great day.  ~ Lyn

After reading your autonomy section under Summary Points, the muddy waters cleared for us immediately. We have re-instituted family meetings with ALL members of the family as much as possible so that no one is singled out. We have established a family support system and letting all of them know there is no shame in asking for help when you need it. House rules, fair-fighting, decision-making have been established. We continue to do your assignments and are getting better at them all the time. Best of all, this has made our marriage stronger! We remind each other about the "arts" of saying yes and no. We work together on earned privileges and consequences. Thank you for your time and energy.   ~ Carl and Melissa G.

During these past few weeks, my husband and I have been implementing many steps, successfully. Our Aspergers son has been completing his weekly chores with not much complaint.  There haven't been any melt-downs around here, and the few irritable times we've had have been much less stressful. I hope it's still ok to email you from time to time to say hi and fill you in on our progress.   ~ Thomas and Janet P.

For years I have been trying to determine what was wrong with my son, or me, and trying to understand why we just couldn’t communicate.  We used to have great bouts of anger, but he simply couldn’t express it and just fumed. I believe he resented me as a parent, and yet I felt it was because I gave him everything and satisfied his every need, anything but put up with the meltdowns.  But those days are gone thanks to you Mark. My son has improved so much that few people even know he has a disorder.   ~ Kayla U.

I am incorporating your suggestions into my life with my 17-year-old son – and things are going so much better.  We are both trying and, though he still goes to counseling, I feel like I have tools to work with him now. Thanks a $$$million!   ~ Jerry M.

I can’t even begin to tell you how helpful it was in turning my teenager around. It’s been a great year this year, and I want to thank you for your huge part in that. No more sleepless nights.  Your website gets lots of referrals from me! I think your method utilizing online courses and support groups is brilliant. Warm regards.   ~ Kathy E.

I do not believe this program is for just Aspergers teens. I think every parent can benefit from this program. I wish I had access to something like this when my child was younger. It would have saved us a lot of heartache now.   ~ Peter Q.

I have been using your program for about a month now, I am on chapter 4, and I have to tell you----THANK YOU!!!  I finally have had PEACE in my life.  My child with Aspergers is doing his chores.  I have not argued with him during all this time. Life is good again, and I feel confident and supported. My husband and I were making mistakes without even knowing.  I'll keep you posted. So far so good!   ~ Sara M.

I have fired the counselors, weaned my child off medications, and I am ready to begin the work of becoming a stronger, more focused parent. My soon to be ex-husband has also agreed to purchase the program and we intend on working it together to get our teen back on track. I thank you for your help and guidance.   ~ Wanda S.

I have seen such a change in myself and my son, it's amazing. Not that the problems are all gone, but simply by saying I'm not arguing and honoring that, even though I've said it before, surprised him (and me) and put an end to so many problems. It was like I was the MOM again. I guess just having the support of the program helped and knowing there were others out there with the same problems.   ~ Kara S.

I have successfully (I think) completed your program with my 14-year-old child with Aspergers, and things are WAY better. It has been a rough two years, and though I’m no fool and know there's more to come, your eBook has helped me stop what felt like a runaway train.   ~ Teresa J.

I just followed the instructions, and he stopped yelling at me. He started doing his homework, and he stopped hitting me immediately. It really gave me the sense that I am in charge. I’m so grateful I found your website and eBook.   ~ Kendra L.

I know my teen with Aspergers just needed a firmer hand at my home. With this program, I have gotten my son to regain his pride in himself, and his grades have come up immensely, and his attitude has turned around so that the teachers are commenting. I'm going back through the program again on what I'm not strong enough on. It has definitely made a difference. I will keep you posted. Thank you!   ~ Katherine H.

I know that we will still experience some bumpy times, but we are feeling a bit more confident as we continue to practice the skills in your Apsergers teen eBook.  Our house- hold is certainly seeing the difference and we feel more prepared to deal with our 16 year old as he progresses through these adolescent years.   ~ Kami D.

I started using the language and skills suggested and WOW what a difference it's making already! My defiant child is being positive, kind and respectful to me. It's hard to change, but I'm convinced this is going to work for my family. I've learned that my actions have a direct effect on my Aspergers son, and when I show him respect -- I get it right back! Thank you so much for retraining me.   ~ Wendy L.

I totally gave-up my traditional parenting and followed your strategies from the beginning. I am glad to tell you that I feel my Aspergers son respects me more -- and this is very important to start communication. Many thanks for your kind attention to encourage me implementing your strategies and always replying to my enquiries.   ~ Veronica J.

I wanted to let you know how much I really appreciate your Aspergers book. It is full of really practical and easy-to-use information to help parents with their Aspergers teens, and also the rest of the family. As a journalist I know a thing or two about writing - and this is definitely put together and written very professionally.   ~ Ian K.

I wanted to say thank you for all your support, sound advice, and speedy responses. You were the only person I could speak with, and you helped me enormously. I will never forget your support Mark - when I was terrorized and totally overwhelmed you gave me the strength and support that allowed me to do my very best for my son. God bless you for your generosity of spirit and your great work. I don't know where I would be today without your help and advice.   ~ Sue N.

I was amazed how well my son responded to me when I humbled myself, admitted that I made some mistakes in my parenting, apologized for it and told him that I would be making some changes. I was ready to give up on him and have him go live with his father.  Your sound advice has given me a glimmer of hope and made me realize that my son is like you said "a work in progress", and giving up on him and handing over my parental responsibilities to my ex-husband would be a big mistake.  I love my son too much to bail out on him like that. Thank you so much.   ~ Ginny D.

I wish I had this program when M___ was just a child, I think our lives would’ve been so much easier. I have actually gotten the words that you use to turn arguments around. No more power struggles …no more temper tantrums …no more lying. You are making a difference in the world Mark. Please continue your work!   ~ Rhonda W.

I work in psychiatry, but have struggled to discipline my own Aspergers son and to understand his behavior.  I have put in to practice the first week session and already it is working.  Your insight into Aspergers teens is amazing... it was like you had written it all for my son and I.  Thank you, a thousand times, thank you.  I’ll keep you informed of J__’s progress, my 16 year old defiant teenager!   ~ Michael W.

If there is anything we can do to "give back" please let us know. We do plan to "pay it forward" and steer parents to your program if they ask us how we managed to cope with our Aspergers teenager.   ~ Gale W.

In just one week after doing the My Aspergers Teen course, I saw huge changes in my child with Aspergers Syndrome – and even the teacher noticed. He’s a happier person due to this program. Thank you… thank you …thank you!   ~ Kristi K.

It is like you have been hanging out in our home, watching us.  We are on our 3rd therapist in a 2 year period, and not one of them have seemed to have a grasp on what we are dealing with, but your first few chapters have summed us up almost immediately.   I had to stop and say thank you.   ~ Paul R.
