Sue Scheff

Sue Scheff is an author and Parent Advocate. She founded Parents' Universal Resource Experts, Inc in 2001. Her expertise is educating parents that are struggling with their out-of-control teenager and Internet safety for both kids and adults. In her book, Wit's End! Advice and Resources for Saving Your Out-of-Control Teen, (Health Communications, Inc), Sue Scheff journals her own difficulties with her teen, as well as offers prescriptive advice for parents at their wit's end. After being victimized online and cyber-stalked due to her advocacy work, Sue Scheff won a landmark case for Internet Defamation and Invasion of Privacy. Since then, her name and voice has become synonymous with helping others that are being destroyed virtually as well as educating kids and adults about their online reputation. In her book, Google Bomb! How the $11.3M Verdict Changed the Way We Use the Internet (HCI), co-authored by the late John Dozier, Sue Scheff's story is untangled. Like her previous book, Google Bomb also offers the prescriptive advice to help others.

As a Parent Advocate, Sue Scheff believes that parenting teens today is a challenge and parents need all the help and resources they can get. An educated parent is a prepared parent.
