Whispering Thoughts of Suicide
Where are your kids turning for counsel
David R. Smith and Jonathan McKee

The smartphones kids carry around in their pockets are powerful devices. They can help students study, access helpful resources, travel safely, and much more. 

Sadly, sometimes smartphones are also the tool kids use to communicate “under the radar.”

JONATHAN'S BLOG: Your worries about teens and mobile devices
Some GREAT feedback from you all in my last post as you shared your concerns about today's teens and their mobile devices. I've just posted the 5 contest winners below (in this post) who each will win a free "advanced reader" copy of my upcoming book, The Teens Guide to Social Media and Mobile Devices.

For those of you who didn't win... and want a copy. Some great options right now. Amazon has it for pre-sale today for almost 50% off... just $7 and change. Grab that before it changes (who knows Amazon's logic with price-setting). Then I'm pre-selling autographed first editions on my site for just $8.99 ...I'll be personally signing all pre-orders.

Enjoy!

In a college softball game, between Western Oregon and Central Oregon, a senior named Sara from Western hit her very first career homerun. Fortunately for her team, she had two runners on base. But as she was running the bases, she twisted her leg and broke it. Sara was unable to complete her run,
