My name is Colleen Sall I'm the mom of a teen girl and boy and am on the adventure of a lifetime "Raising Teens Right" as I chart new territory with two terrific kids. I grow along with my children as we navigate the emotions, situations and pressures of teen life. I live in the Chicago suburbs with my husband of 24 years, our two kids and a lively little dog. Life is good.

Please check out my personal blog, motherunload.com for more tales of teendom, heartfelt family reflections and how we (try) to keep a sense of humor about it all. You can email me at motherunload1@gmail.com
