parents great insight and helps them to prevent and

The hazards of being a teen in today's world are more common than you may think.
Odds are, your teenager has already been exposed to most, if not all of the above...if not directly, then through their peers.
And although you do your best to make sure your teen is well informed and makes the right decisions, many influences on your teen's behavior are beyond your control.
What's more frustrating is that most teens who become involved in destructive behavior are often too ashamed, afraid, or embarrassed to come to parents for help. That's why it's critical as parents to understand and identify signs of danger – before it's too late.
In Troubled Teenagers – Identifying and Dealing with Tough Issues you'll gain valuable insight from teens and parents who are survivors...
- Read why Sheryl's mother’s inability to recognize her daughters drug addiction almost cost her daughter’s life
- Hear stories from parents who lost their teens, and what they wish they had done different
- Discover why you could unwittingly be enabling your teen's negative behavior
You'll also hear direct testimonials from teenagers as to why and how they lost control.
They all faced the reality of addictive and destructive behavior and survived to tell their story.
From their experiences, you'll get a first-hand education on how and why even level-headed teens can become involved in the downward spiral of addiction, abuse, and self-destruction.
Teens are vulnerable to peer pressure, and they often want to try new things to fit in. They are also convinced that they are in complete control and can stop anytime.
Stress, emotional turmoil, and that ever-present feeling of invincibility (you only live once) can lead teens down a path of destruction before they're even aware a problem exists.
And you'll hear how they tried to hide their behavior once they realized they were in trouble.
The good news is: there are clear warning signs, things your teen cannot hide. And they are outlined in Troubled Teenagers – Identifying and Dealing with Tough Issues.

- Running away from home Drinking and drug use

Today's teenagers navigate a very different world from the one you remember as a teen. And without your support and involvement in their lives, they're less likely to make it out unscathed.
Teenagers need help and guidance, but it can sometimes be difficult for parents to recognize when to intervene in their teenager's life.
Being able to tell the difference between normal teenage behavior and self-destructive, hurtful behavior is crucial.
Troubled Teenagers – Identifying and Dealing with Tough Issues is a complete guide to recognizing all of these unhealthy behaviors, and what to do about them.
Build a stronger relationship with your teenager, take a welcomed role in their development, and manage the hazards and pitfalls that can befall even the brightest and level-headed teen.
