Blogger Willie Hewes of Free Z. has been dialoguing a bit with Love In Action executive director John Smid. Here is Hewes’s letter and Smid’s reply.

Smid’s reply is worth a quick read — it is spoken with the tone of someone who possesses competency in professional therapy, even though few staffers at LIA have actually earned such credentials.

Strangely, the letter to Hewes was followed by another message by Smid to someone else, misaddressed to Hewes. That message claims very high success rates at improving youth-parent communications and faith commitment, but the stats are apparently based on a sample of just 24 youths. And the means by which the stats were derived is not indicated, so one can’t ascertain whose opinions of success rates are really being surveyed — the youths, the parents, or the pricey counselors.
