Testimonials

"I recently had the opportunity to hear Stephen speak to parents and teenagers at a New England prep school over Parent's Weekend. His book, Reality Gap, is a must read for all parents, aunts, uncles, and adults who have children in their lives. A truly impressive presenter, speaker, and a professional who believes in and cares about teenagers and their trials and tribulations. His speeches are smart, honest, and first-hand accounts of what today's teenagers encounter."

"Stephen addresses difficult and provocative issues – with insight and compassion – backed by the landmark SADD/Liberty Mutual Teens Today studies. His presentation is thoughtful and clear – and vital to all who serve youth.”

- Harriet Gamble, American Camp Association

"Stephen connects with faculty because he is amusing, full of the kinds of anecdotes that resonate with those who work with kids professionally. He is effective with parents because he helps them understand their kids more clearly. I think people carry away a clear idea about what they actually need to do when working with young people – and living with their own children.”
