Non-Expert Warning
The authors of “Parenting in the Dark” are not health care professionals, and the guest writers who /are/ health professionals are providing general advice.  If you are suffering from a health or mental health problem please contact a local medical professional to make a specific plan that matches your personal symptoms and needs.


If you are in crisis, please get help.  You are a unique and priceless person and the world would be poorer without you in it.
