An update to a previous post about Dylan, an emotionally-troubled teen that was subjected to unspeakable abuses at the hand of his mother, born with short stature syndrome and treated with HGH for 10 years, he had severe dental problems as a result of medications and his teeth were literally rotting.
Every day, one of our five offices gets a call from a parent who wants us to help them with their troubled teenager that has behavioral issues or problems or with drugs and alcohol. The parents are at their wit’s end and simply don’t know what do to. Fortunately, we do.
I have lectured about this subject, and I’ve written extensively about it. And just when I thought I’d heard it all, up pops 18 year-old Nicholas M. Fuhst with a hair-brained idea for his local Hooters.
Fuhst recently decided to enter a Hooters in Kochville, Michigan and announce he was an “undercover cop.” This is funny to me, because he clearly doesn’t the concept of “undercover”.

With the support of multiple therapists, hospitalizations, family, friends, and by the Grace of God – Dylan has survived.
Dylan was born with short stature syndrome and was treated with HGH for 10 years. This helped with his height, as he’s 5’7″ at 19 1/2 years of age. But, he has severe dental problems as a result of medications and his custodial parent leaving his braces on for 2+ years longer than needed.
For our case of the week, we were hired by parents to perform surveillance on their 16-year-old daughter, “Shannon”. She was abusing drugs and alcohol, not attending school and had actually struck her mother in the face on two occasions. In 2015, we have had approximately 50 cases where a parent or custodial guardian has…
A few thoughts on the Baltimore riots, Super moms and problems with teenagers this morning: Over the past few days, I’ve been watching the “war-zone” in Baltimore, Maryland as people react to the death of Freddie Gray after his arrest on April 12, 2015. The scenes were eerily similar to the 1992 Los Angeles riots…
