How to Raise a Drug-Free Teen

By

While there are many tough issues when raising teens that can strike fear in the heart of a parent, teen drug use might be number one. But parents can't allow fears to force them to ignore drug concerns in their teen's life - and all teens have them! Each and every teenager knows someone in school who experiments or readily uses drugs. Every teen has seen it on television or in the news.

To empower a drug-free teen you'll need to put your fear aside and meet this issue head on. You can keep your teen drug-free, or start them on a drug-free path if they have been experimenting already, because this issue is not bigger than your loving influence.
