    Hi Lori .. thanks – it’s really good to know that these posts are here, as it’s something that I thought I should explore at some stage .. especially as I get older. The relationship element, is as you say, important. Thank you -Hilary

    Hi Hilary,
    Please do explore! I’m happy to provide these.

    Hi there,
    Missed you! I found this post as I was dipping my toes back into blogging waters. As always, a huge thank you; I sent this list straight to my teenage daughter as a handy revision reference. I wish you had a DVD too. (Maybe you could think about that as a future project 😉 ) Good luck with the ebook! I hope it reaches loads of folk who’d benefit.

    Hi Janice,
    Good to hear from you! Thank you for the well-wishes!

    DVD conceptually is in the works — you’ve not seen karate taught until you’ve seen me break it down with memorable specifics and humor.

    I came across this site while searching for something to help me prepare a pre-teen for possible mandatory visitation with an emotionally and physically abusive parent. Yeah… I know. Shouldn’t be. But it sometimes is.

    What you write is geared for older people. Do you know anything (free) that I can use for this child? I don’t even know what the child needs to know, let alone how to teach it, yet the responsibility has been given to me and I intend to do it as best I can.

    Hi TS,
    That’s a tough one. You’d have to make sure there was outstanding support and encouragement for the child before and after so he or she will believe in their own worth and not what the abusive person says.
