A really nice article. Worth reading as I try to understand the problems that surround my now resident teenage son. Good job to the authors.

Studies have shown that one of the most mitigating factors for at risk youth is having adults in their lives who care and are involved. This article seems to confirm that fact.

This article reminds me of the Jeannette Wall's story from her book The Glass Castle. She figured out so many things in life, despite her messed up parents. She definitely had some things in her development that were missing but so many things, she was able to learn despite neglect and bad examples from her parents. The book made me wonder about all the kids who aren't able to learn the necessary skills to function as adults.

This is such an important issue and it was well covered in this article. Appropriate use of statistics and interesting example stories. Thank you!
