Current Commentary now has an article that enlightens readers about many truths that are contained in the Bible but which have been hidden or twisted around to mean something different from what was originally intended. In fact, religion has taken facts and rearranged or reinterpreted them in such a way as to give impressions quite different from what you may think if you read them yourself. Click on Current Commentary to learn more and possibly to see truths differently.

"Stop trying to fix broken people. Let's prevent them from breaking in the first place."

Over the past half century we have gone from caveman-type thinking about the psychological problems that people have to a level of professionalism that Drs. Freud and Jung couldn't have imagined.

With all of that gain of knowledge and skill, we have more people than ever with psychological problems they can't cope with. They take stimulants, relaxants, mood enhancers, mood levelers by prescription, many other kinds of illegal drugs and alcohol without prescription, engage in all manner of addiction, develop phobias for which new terminology must be invented and contract diseases and syndromes at an unprecedented level.

So many people have problems that collectively they impact whole communities. While violent crimes are down in some places, minor crimes have increased where people are desperate to get money to pay their bills or to buy drugs.

Conservative thinkers put it down to inevitable consequences of a modern highly developed society.

That's not true. That's a quitter's attitude.

Most of these problems occur at a personal level because we have people working in 21st century jobs, using 21st century technology and leading 21st century lifestyles, but they grew into them from 19th century social and education systems.

Schools today perform essentially the same functions as they were designed to perform during the 1800s. They prepare young people for jobs and to conduct themselves through the rituals of modern urban life.

Almost every inmate in prison for non-political reasons is under-developed or maldeveloped socially. The USA, for example, has a far greater percentage of its citizens behind bars per capita than any other country in the world-more than one in ten adults.

Almost every patient in psychiatric wards and those with psychological problems on the streets are emotionally under-developed or maldeveloped. Some are also socially underdeveloped.

Social and emotional development of children, though as important as their intellectual and physical development, progress in most kids in an accidental or coincidental manner. Some kids don't learn the lessons because the occasions don't arise to teach them.

As a result, as many as 40 percent of citizens in western countries may be in prison or have psychological problems which they can't manage themselves because they don't know how. A greater percentage of people than that have problems they can't cope with from time to time, but they don't become social misfits and tax burdens to their communities.

This is morally wrong and unnecessary.

Turning It Around: Causes and Cures for Today's Epidemic Social Problems was written to address these issues. The book explains how we got into these kinds of social problems, how they affect every member of every community (including by keeping tax rates high), it presents a plan to fairly easily and cheaply enact the necessary changes to the education system to correct the problems, and it includes an implementation plan so that the necessary legislation can be put in place easily.

Why have you not heard about this book and the TIA plan before now? Both are new. They are products of 21st century thinking about 21st century problems.

We need your help to make the necessary changes. Read the book, tell others about it, share the book around so that everyone can read it.

It even has recommended teaching points for primary teachers and parents as separate appendices. It's all right there, so there is no guessing needed.

Every parent and every teacher should have this book. Every grandparent should read it and pass it to their children.

The plan can happen only when enough people know about it and how it works.

It's easy and it's cheap. And it's different, which explains why you haven't heard about this approach before. It's not totally new in its approach, it just updates what parents have been doing for thousands of years with their children. Only it updates to the 21st century.

Our time of history is different from any in the past. We need family structures, knowledge and skills to be able to address the challenges of the 21st century head-on.

Turning It Around: Causes and Cures for Today's Epidemic Social Problems will help us do it.

Turning It Around: Causes and Cures for Today's Epidemic Social Problems has been called everything from "a miracle book" (daytime Toronto) to "the most important book since the Bible" (some of its earliest supporters).

The book explains how people lack certain skills and knowledge in their development as children and this lack shows itself in critical problems they have as adults.

Those problems include drugs, alcohol, gambling and other addictions, participation in criminal activity, an astronomical divorce rate, even functional illiteracy (as high as 46 to 50% among adult North Americans) and a rapidly increasing rate of homelessness.

These personal problems become social problems of every community, meaning they cost everyone dearly in tax dollars. That doesn't include the huge costs of physical and mental health problems that plague our health care systems and add to the costs of every business. Meaning that we pay out even more money for goods and services we buy.

Children don't know or understand why a parent gets drunk or has mood swings or is sick all the time. They think it's normal because it's all they know. This affects how they act and what they expect when they become adults.

A huge percentage of children raised in welfare families become welfare recipients themselves as adults. Not because they want to but because they lack the ability to be anything else.

We have the solutions. They're in this book. Not only that, but a plan to make changes in a few laws and some school curriculum would cost almost nothing compared to what we are paying now. And it would save us fortunes annually in taxes.

Turning It Around is not a religious reformation or political revolution. It's simply a new way to address problems that are getting worse now and our only way of fighting them has been to build more prisons, hire more police and train more doctors and psychologists. That didn't work.

The plan is so simple that it's shameful that everyone doesn't know about it.

That's where we can use your help. Read the book (buy it, borrow it or ask for it at your library) and join the support group (no cost and a minimum of email).

Let's begin the 21st century with a truly modern and sustainable society. Let's turn it around.

You can read some chapters of the book on other pages of this web site. Right here, right now. Click on "Inside the book" in the navigation bar on the left of this page.

It's time to get started. Let's do it together.

"Discovery consists in seeing what everyone else has seen and thinking what no one else has thought."
- Albert Szent-Gyvrgyi, Nobel Prize for Medicine 1937 

Turning It Around not only addresses a lack of good information among new parents, it gives teachers what they need to know to fulfill their roles as parental replacements when kids are at school.

You don't need a license to become a parent. You do need this book as a guide to parenting and grandparenting.

TIA tells it straight, what kids need and how parents and teachers can provide it. It even shows school boards and state/provincial governments how they can make inexpensive changes to meet the needs of every community in the 21st century.

Turning It Around: Causes and Cures for Todays Epidemic Social Problems, available from all book stores and online book sellers. Just ask.

Bonus: Get the free ebook  "50 Gifts for Life" for joining the TIA support group. This "words of wisdom" book gives parents of teens topics that even the most reluctant of them will want to discuss.
It has loads of good advice for everyone. And the price is so right!

In the process of reading, you will learn how you can better take control of your own life.

Sound impossible? It's not. In our desperate search for personal wealth and instant solutions to problems around us, we have overlooked the basics that hold any nation, any culture, any people, any family together. They are the cure.
The answers are around us, if we look in the right places. Look in this book first.
