Talk to Your Adolescent Child About Marijuana Use and Abuse with “Teens & Weed”
For many parents, talking about marijuana can be tremendously challenging. Yet, these days, few conversations with our children are more important. The recent legalization of marijuana in some states for medical and even recreational use has added to an already complex topic. Because of legalization, some young people believe the drug is harmless. It’s not.
To help parents discuss marijuana clearly and effectively, Rosecrance has produced Teens & Weed: Still a Big Deal. This parent’s guide to talking about marijuana provides the latest information parents need. It was developed using both expert sources and with the help of teenagers in treatment at Rosecrance. It focuses on the beliefs and misperceptions of actual teenagers and provides thoughtful, effective answers parents can give when their teens make inaccurate claims about the drug.
