As an avid researcher, when I detect a shift or change in adolescent behavior, I dig in with the goal of determining the cause. Naturally as the facilitator of The Quest Project-A Modern Day Rite-of-Passage program for adolescent boys my observations are “real time and accurate!”
The Quest Project
Peter McGennis is a filmmaker/producer from New York. He is underway with the filming of his new documentary “Within Reach (working title).” He invited me and The Quest Project to be a part of this very exciting new film!

Each week I contemplate the subject matter (the theme) that I feel is the most relevant and helpful to the parents reading my blogs. This is a sensitive subject; it’s one that I see parents struggle with. Parents of children at any/all ages.
Periodically I like to give you news and updates; a glimpse into what’s going on and what I’m up to! It’s a very exciting time for The Quest Project® and me personally. I’ll start with the updates. What’s Been Going On? We officially launched my second book “Generation of Men”-How to raise your son to […]

This is dedicated to all the Mom’s out there who are raising son(s)! Thank You Mom If you’re a single Mom, you don’t need me to tell you how hard it is raising kids alone. Many mom’s today are filling the role of dad too. They’re likely working a full-time job, taking care of […]
