We've all been there. You’re standing in the grocery store at the exact moment your child decides to have an emotional outburst because they're out of his favorite candy or she wants a particular type of cereal—or for no particular reason at all.

Behind every Idaho Youth Ranch success story, there is a parent who found the courage to say they needed help. There are heart-broken mothers who sobbed with a complete stranger on the phone about how her baby was in trouble and she simply didn’t know what to do; and there are fathers thinking over every decision they’ve ever made and wondering where it all went wrong.
