What Every Teen Should Know About Drugs!

Parents!  My Goal with this blog post is to provide you with Drug (use-abuse-addiction) information that will increase your confidence when you talk with your teenager about the importance of being Drug Free! I’ve purposely been selective in what I present here. You will learn more from my upcoming book titled “Getting High After School!” It will expand on this blog post – What Every Teen Should Know About Drugs!

Let me begin by sharing a quote from The Partnership at Drug Free.org. In addition to the exemplary work they do to help young people involved in Drugs, they also have great resources for parents. It is my prayer that The Partnership’s words will encourage and challenge you to Take Action! – Teach your teen about the dangers of Drug use, abuse and addiction.

What Every Parent Should Know

No matter how excellent your parenting skills are and no matter how vigilant you are, your teenager will be exposed to ideas, attitudes, language and behaviors that you oppose.

Most teenagers have some knowledge of Drugs. This includes the Drugs they and their friends wouldn’t be caught dead using and the Drugs either they or someone in their group believes are harmless enough to “Just try once!” read more …

Teen Turbulence – Let’s Break It Down!

Teen Turbulence is all the crappy “Stuff” that naturally erupts in the lives of our sons and daughters. It’s the “Stuff” that we parents cannot control … because it’s completely under the control of our teenagers. If you are living with a teenager, Turbulence is either happening now or about to bubble up and splatter all over you.  BUT there’s hope!

Remember Your Teen Years!

Do you recall your teen years? I hope so because it’s important that you feel “Empathy” toward your teenager. That would be the proof that you have not forgotten what it feels like to be trapped in the body and brain of a teenager. read more …
