Al Legator is the "Nom de Web" of Derek Madge, a father and now grandfather.
He has two children in their twenties and has been active with youth groups and Scouts for up to 20 years. He first started adding his opinions and information to various teen advice oriented websites and since he was the age of, or older than, the parents of many of the youth on those site, he started calling himself an "old Croc", which eventually became a different, creature, a word play on alligator, Al LeGator.
He has a ridiculous sense of humour, knows that both parents and children - and friends and lovers -make mistakes, and likes to point out that the only way you can go is forward.
Most of the information found on this website is gleaned from reputable websites (see the Sources page) and various authoritative books.
