Most people aren't crazy enough to write a book of 52 things they want to share with their soon to be 18 year olds and graduates. I was...

Not just once but four times! I have a daughter, son, stepson and stepdaughter. 52 Things to Know is a platform that will give you a great head start! Use a few, some, or all of my chapters to create your own personal book. Add your own perspective, your own pictures and create a personalized book that you can share with your son, daughter, stepson, stepdaughter, niece, nephew or grandchild.

This is an opportunity to share your feelings and your wisdom with your loved one. You will have access to what I wrote and hopefully over time thousands of parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, stepparents etc., just like you. You can also share your writing with others so they can benefit from your wisdom.

Our topics are bold and personal: Love, greed, friends, envy, sex, college, pornography, health, faith, relationships…and many more that you might add as well.

This is a unique opportunity for you to give a special gift to your 18 year old or graduate. We think it is the best birthday present or graduation present you can give. On behalf of 52 Things to Know, I hope you will join us.
