Sue Scheff promoting Parent Awareness

PURE is about helping and assisting not only parents, but also school guidance counselors, therapists and other professionals and family members.

When a child (teen) starts taking a wrong path in their young life, as adults, we must step in and guide them. Whether it means looking for a local therapist or support group, or the challenge of finding the right program or school - a person need to do their research and homework to move forward.

Parenting is not easy, but working together can make the difference.

Whether it is a parent struggling with a child or someone that has been abused on the Internet, I am continuing to share my first hand experience to help others.

Sue Scheff updates...

It has been an exciting summer and much more to come. Check my personal Blog of News Articles for updates.

The interest in Internet Defamation has grown as more and more people are becoming victims of slander, defamation and their personal lives invaded. I did not ask to become a spokesperson on this subject, but being a victim that fought back and won, I have to speak out to help others.

Sue Scheff part of parents helping parents...

As my book progresses, much like The Chicken Soup for the Soul books, it brings inspiration and gives you hope that through dark times, there will finally be a light. Remember, it may not be the light we want to see, but it is a step in a direction that has limitless possibilities.

Over the years many parents have asked for this book, and finally it will be here. "Wit's End!" is one of the most common phrases I hear parents say or email us constantly.

Wit's End for me was not only a place I was with my own daughter - it was a place I found myself again with the litigation. What I have learned is that I will always survive and it is about not letting others break you. I will always fight for what I believe in and defend myself, my organization and my family.

So get ready - the book will bring you on a journey of life's trials (both literally and emotionally) as well as a resource book to bring relief. Learn from my mistakes - gain from my knowledge.

About Sue Scheff

Sue Scheff is about Parents Helping Parents.

Sue Scheff promotes Parent Awareness.

Sue Scheff believes that educating parents on an industry that is extremely confusing is the first step to finding the best help for their teen.

Until a parent has a teen that is struggling, they are completely foreign to the industry of teen help. Sue Scheff’s personal experiences in 2000 are what prompted her to create her organization, Parent’s Universal Resource Experts, Inc. (PURE).

Sue Scheff believes an educated parent has the knowledge to see through the glossy brochures and slick DVD’s or video’s.

Sue Scheff recognizes the politics’ in this industry of teen help, and helps sift through the confusion. Sue Scheff offers assistance in how to research schools and programs – helpful hints in investigating schools and programs. Questions to ask schools and programs and Helpful Hints.

Sue Scheff is a Member of the Better Business Bureau for the past 4 years and is recognized for their integrity, sound professional advice, honesty and more.

Sue Scheff has fought a legal battle when people thought she should simply remove her website and go away. Sue decided to be a voice for all those that are silenced. After a 2+ year legal battle against a huge multi-million dollar organization – Sue Scheff, after being emotionally ripped apart, continued to fight for the children’s rights. Sue Scheff won against World Wide Association of Specialty Programs and Schools (WWASPS aka WWASP) in a Jury Trial in their home state of Utah.

In June 2006, Sue Scheff again defeats WWASPS in the Appellate Court. Sue Scheff is someone that is sometimes criticized on forums and blogs in an effort to discredit her.

Sue Scheff recognizes there are survivors of programs from many, many years ago that suffered the ultimate price. Sue feels pain for their experiences, however realizes that closing all programs is not the solution – helping parents find safe and qualified schools that can benefit today’s teens is what is needed.

Sue Scheff recognizes that the private teen programs and schools should have stronger regulations and guidelines, but until that happens, we need to continue to do our research to find the better programs. There are no perfect schools and programs out there; but making a mistake and selecting the wrong one may be very expensive, and not just in terms of money.

Sue Scheff and PURE believe in:

Helping Teens – not Harming Them
Building them up – not Breaking them down
Positive and Nurturing Environments – not Punitive
Family Involvement in Programs – not Isolation from the teen
Protect Children – not Punish them
