Parent Advocate Sue Scheff Announces Release Date for New Book, "Wits End!" Out Early 2008


Weston, Florida - Parent Sue Scheff knows all too well the frustrations of dealing with a troubled teen.

Being a single mom was tough, but as daughter Ashlyn reached her teenage years, the problems became too much to handle. Bad decisions and difficult situations left Sue Scheff with no choice but to look to outside help for her troubled teen and salvation for strained family. What she didn’t know continues to haunt her. Seven years after her devastating travels through the teen help industry,Sue Scheff has become an advocate for safe alternatives and parent education. Through her organization, Parents Universal Resource Experts, Scheff has helped numerous families safely and successfully find help. Hoping to reach parents further, advocate Scheff becomes author with the release of her first book, “Wits End!”. Due in early 2008, “Wits End” details the trials and tribulations of Scheff and her family along with the reality surrounding the teen help industry. Scheff hopes “a parent’s mistakes”¯ can lend insight into other parents anguish. “Wits End!” will serve as a resource for families dealing with troubled teens.

“Wits End!” started with a parent at hers; desperate to find help for her teen daughter, Sue Scheff enlisted the help of a troubled teen help umbrella program. Through that organization, Ms. Scheff was introduced to the Carolina Springs Academy, a behavioral modification school located in South Carolina. Impressed by the positive references, Scheff enrolled her daughter.

Soon after securing Ashlyn at the school, red flags began to rise. School support sessions seemed strange, the program’s hidden costs continued to add up, and observation of other parents and school staff brought her great discomfort. After six months being denied the right to visit or even speak with her daughter, Sue Scheff withdrew Ashlyn from the school.

Upon returning home, Sue felt Ashlyn hadn’t benefited from her time at Carolina Springs. In fact, the problems seemed to be worse. It was then Sue Scheff was faced with the reality of her decisions: Ashlyn shared what Sue felt were horrible experiences. Together, the pair worked with an excellent psychologist and began to heal, however, Scheff felt unsatisfied. Desperate parents like her, she felt, were still being lured into dangerous programs daily. In 2001, Compelled by her struggles and newfound experiences, Sue Scheff founded Parents Universal Resource Experts to support parents with truth and genuine solutions for troubled teens.

Seven years later, Parents Universal Resource Experts is still going strong. Through free consultation services and the experience of parents nationwide, Sue Scheff has created a safe haven for families desperate for help. The organization continues to provide safe options and alternatives for troubled teens as well as resources for parent education. PURE believes in “Parents Helping Parents.”
