I don’t understand why my teen behaves/reacts this way.

How did I not see this coming?

Where did I go wrong?

What now?

Trans cranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a breakthrough treatment used for depression. When medication proves ineffective or causes negative side effects, this drug-free, FDA-approved, noninvasive and safe technology provides a powerful alternative treatment. TMS uses magnetic pulses to stimulate parts of the brain associated with depression, and patients frequently report improvements in their mood, higher energy levels and an increased sense of well-being.

After four years in the field, hundreds of personal embers and who knows how many more witnessed, you would think it would be easy for me to answer that question. I have been a long-term proponent of bow drilling because I have seen it work miracles. I have seen tears of anger, joy, and triumph.
