A realistic, practical parents' guide to teenagers and drug use that takes the debate beyond the 'just say no' approach.
If you're a battle-weary parent struggling with adolescence, your idea of heaven may be the place where kids just say 'no'. No to unsafe sex (or, better still, no to any kind of sex at all) and no to any substance stronger than cappuccino...But the bottom line is that it's normal for adolescents to experiment and take risks. And the figures for experimentation with drugs among teenagers are higher than they have ever been. While parents' concerns and fears are understandable, drug educators believe it's more effective to take a different approach than 'just say no'. This approach has become known as 'harm minimisation'. Kids and Drugs takes parents and adolescents through the strategies for harm minimisation in a direct, no-nonsense style. It also explores how families have coped with drug use within the family. Areas covered include:..Good Communication..Teaching kids good sense with drugs..The facts about drugs and alcohol..What it feels like to be an adolescent in the 1990s..Drugs and school..Categories of drug use.
