Virtual Book Tour

I am so grateful for the tremendous support from our parent blogger friends and family. For the launch of our book, “Do I Get My Allowance Before or After I’m Grounded?” we decided to do a virtual book tour–doing stops, guest posts and interviews at other blogs.

More Thanks:

There are so many people I have to thank for making this book possible. First, thank you to my family—Vance, Stacy, Anita, Larry, Robert, Courtney, Haley, and Peanut and Moose for being so supportive and encouraging through the entire process. Second, thank you to my fabulous, amazing book agents Joel Gotler and Mel Parker. You have believed in my crazy ideas and hope we have a long future together. I want to thank the entire team at Penguin, especially my editor Meghan Stevenson for putting up with my endless questions and making my blogger writing into author writing. Thank you to Irene Dreayer, Ken Gross, Ivo Fischer, Sean Perry, and Carla Laur for helping me reach teens and parents everywhere.

There are also many colleagues and mentors who have given me words of wisdom, advice, and link love as I did research and built up my blog audience for this book over the past few years. Thank you to Emily Vaughn, Laurie Brown, David Bickham, Marian Merritt, Michelle Cove, Pam Sellers, Jen Feldman, Michal Osteen, David Suissa, Greg Galant, Kerry Gillick Goldberg and Mary Hanlon Stone. I also wanted to thank all of the other authors and experts who offered to give quotes for this book.

I also want to thank all of my friends who put up with my constant Facebook status updates on parenting teens, watch my videos, and click on my links even though they are not yet parents. Especially Linsey Schwartz, Lindsay Tachibe, Bari Turetzky, Margo Aaron, Jessica Feldman, Paul Ross, Jonathan Osteen, and the Edwards family. Of course, I also want to thank Scott Edwards for reading every single draft of this book, listening to me talk through every single draft of this book, and never once complaining.

Last, I would like to thank the Radical Parenting team. Thank you to Nina Harada, Alexis Boozer, and of course all of my fabulous teen interns! You are all the reason I write. Thank you for your time, your effort, and your willingness to talk to me about what goes on inside the minds of teens. Also thank you to all of our Radical Parenting readers and blogging friends; you are a part of our Radical Parenting family because your comments, advice, and links are so important to the validity and warmth of the site. Thank you.
