Answers to the real questions that teenagers ask about alcohol and drugs, and how parents can get these important conversations startedAimed at parents who are wondering how to talk meaningfully to their kids about drugs, this book offers guidance in determining when is the right time to start talking to kids about drugs and how to reduce the influence of peer pressure. It will help the parent who wants to make sure a party they hold for their teenager doesn't get out of control. It also provides parents with answers to the most commonly asked drug-related questions from teens: Can you really overdose on alcohol? What does it mean if I don't remember things when I drink? How do I look after someone who has drunk too much? Can ecstasy really kill? Do energy drinks make the effect of alcohol much greater when you use them as a mixer? Parents are being told constantly to talk to their kids about binge drinking and drugs, but asking "Are you taking drugs?" won't do it—this book offers an approach that will give teenagers the information they desperately need to keep themselves and their friends safe.
