Our teens are taking calls remotely. Please contact us through the options listed below. If you are emailing our hotline, we have found that many school email addresses will not allow our response to go through, so please use a non-school email address to ensure you receive a response. Do you need help working something out? Do you want to talk to someone who understands, like another teen? We're here to help!
It's late morning and the teenagers in the house are still fast asleep long after you've got up. Should you rush upstairs and pull them out of bed by their feet?

We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
