As usual, totally buried in What They Don’t Teach Teens (pub. date May 25, 2020 by Quill Driver Books) and day job. But only a few more months till editor takes it for good. Will work furiously until then, but see a finish line, mercifully!

I digress though... this guy was walking in front of my house today (as he does every day) stopped to say how “cool” my little office is. I spend way too many hours here!! #parenting #teenagers #finishline

Last night, at times role-playing as police officer Jonathan, I taught JSF Financial clients (and their teens) about their rights with the police and how to have safer police interactions. Interacting with the police, particularly as a new driver, can be intimidating and learning the "rules of engagement" should be mandatory education to get a driver's license. In the meantime, it is just one of the many life skills taught in my book, What They Don't Teach Teens, publishing on April 7, 2020. #teen #police #parenting #knowyourrights ...

Great article about the pressures teens feel to stay electronically connected and still handle their many other responsibilities. This topic (and many others) is covered in my book, What They Don’t Teach Teens, publishing April 2, 2020.

After 2+ years of work and countless hours spent, I just submitted the manuscript to my editors for my forthcoming book, What They Don't Teach Teens. Juggling the writing and researching with my full-time job as a prosecutor and my busy family life has been one of the greatest challenges I've ever faced.
The book covers a wide-range of topics including sexual consent, (unlawful) sexting, digital footprint, street safety, sexual harassment prevention, cyberbullying, and much more. Once I have a release date from the publisher, I'll be sure to share it with all of you.
I've been speaking to parents and teens all over Los Angeles and have enjoyed seeing many of you and your children in the audience. If you want to see whether I'll be at your school, please check my website at whattheydontteachteens.com.
Thanks for your support! -JC
