As a father of two, a longtime family therapist and founder of Active Parenting Publishers – an Atlanta-based company that develops web-based and online educational tools for moms and dads – Michael Popkin (M.Ed. ’75, Ph.D. ’80) knows full well that parenting isn’t easy. So he decided to write a how-to manual for desparate families called, “Taming the Spirited Child: Strategies for Parenting Challenging Children Without Breaking Their Spirits.”

But when she broke her back at 17 while practicing a routine gymnastics vault and lost the use of both of her legs, it cemented the notion that her life would have a special purpose.
