"When raising children," Dennis says, "pain is inevitable, but the suffering is optional." B.I.L.Y. meetings are a place to talk with other parents who listen without judgment or blame. There are no membership requirements or dues, and we are open to the public. Find a Parent Support Group or Youth Support Group location near you.
