Drug and alcohol addiction is a difficult subject to navigate with your kids.
It makes so many of us nervous. We know that we don’t want our kids to struggle with addiction in their lives, and yet, this is a topic that many of us don’t have with our kids until they have most likely already been exposed in their teenage years.
Substance abuse and addiction is a real struggle for so many people in America. But kids are at risk simply due to the media, their genetics and stressors. So what are we to do as parents to help guard our kids against addiction?
Today, we welcome Jessica Lahey, mom of 2 boys and author of upcoming book, The Addiction Inoculation. She specializes in research and writing about the confluence of education and parenting. Jessica shares her recent research and personal stories about addiction, kids, and how we can best guard our kids against addiction.
