Since she told me, my heart has been breaking for Beth. I can't help but think of how many teens there are out there who feel that this is the only way they have to deal with the overwhelming emotions they have.

    I asked Beth, if cutting really makes her feel any better. Her answer was that she ...

    There are so many different ways to teach art. My son worked through the Time4Art program that has. He also has been taking monthly art classes at our local art museum. These have been great experiences for him. I remember 6 years ago when I took him to the first class at the art museum. After we left the class I asked him what he thought of it.
