Aly Pain talks about the simple act of saying thank you as a lost art in our world. When was the last time you said ‘Thank you’ to someone for something that is expected of them? Not even for going above and beyond or doing something out of the ordinary, just for being a positive influence in your daily life. If you want people to follow you as a leader, you must take time to say ‘Thank you’ and do it often, from a sincere and heartfelt place of gratitude. E-mails and texts are nice, but a hand-written note is always best and it doesn’t need to take long. I guarantee you will get more out of this exercise than you imagined and see gratitude as a habit you won’t want to give up. Check out AlyPain for more information.

Growing up, I was the smart, fun girl on the outside and a frantic, anxious mess on the inside. I spent years healing the pain of dysfunctional family relationships, including eating disorders and a suicide attempt, to break the cycle raising my own teen boys.

Today, I’ve been happily married to my husband for over 23 years, and we have 2 incredible teen boys. My passion is empowering parents to build healthy, respectful relationships with their teens without giving up or giving up, even if they've tried everything and are at their wits end.
