Help for Parents
- Do you wonder what behaviors are indicative of a normal teenager and what behaviors point to a problem?
- Are you concerned about the friends your child is associating with?
- Do you know how much alcohol use it too much alcohol use?
or has it gone further than that and you find yourself worried and afraid most of the time. Not knowing what shape your child will be in when he/she comes home tonight, if he/she comes home tonight.
When drugs and alcohol become a part of the picture, the entire family suffers. You try everything you can to hinder the downward spiral, yet you can do nothing but stand by helplessly and watch. You feel angry, terrified and ridden with guilt. “What did I do wrong?” “If only we hadn’t divorced,” “If only I had been more strict,” “If only I can get them to understand the dangers,” If only I had put them in a different school”, “If only, if only…”
