A Personal Note From Megan
Understanding a teenager can make you feel like your head is barely above water at times Ñ let alone working with one who struggles with addiction. Suddenly, you feel like you're drowning.
"I Want to Talk to my Teen About Addictions" provides information and practical support to help you with your addicted son, daughter, friend, and student. Whether you are dealing with someone who cuts, drinks, or indulges in pornography, sex, drugs or smoking, you will have ways to assess if they are truly addicted as well as helpful ways to come along side those with deep hurts.
I love this book (yeah, I wrote it, but I really do). I work with students on a daily basis who are deeply hurting, and I wrote this book because there was nothing out there to help me or my volunteer team with some of our basic questions. Now we have it and so can you.
Thanks for caring for hurting teenagers. They need you more than you know.
