What is it really and what you can do about it.
Aly Pain with Rand Teed
Whether you suspect your teen is using, found drug paraphernalia in their room, caught them red handed or this has been an ongoing battle and you’ve tried everything to get your teen to stop, you’re feeling heartbroken, scared and at a loss of what to do next.
The pissing matches are exhausting and have taken a huge toll on your relationship with your teen, other children and your marriage.
You feel trapped between knowing what’s best and laying down the law but your teen never comes out of their room and refuses to talk to you, or setting boundaries about not using or storing their stash in your home so your teen re-engages with family, is calm, doing well in school, at work and even goes to counseling or therapy sessions.
You’ve worked hard to raise your teen right and even though they’ve struggled and aren’t perfect, this was never part of the plan. Your teen tells you it’s only occasional use, it’s no big deal, or it helps them cope with stress, anxiety or depression.
Even still, you’re watching your teen go down a path that no amount of boundaries, consequences or conversation seems to change.
Thousands of parents are saying the same things as legalization of marijuana and increased access to it has more and more teens becoming casual or regular users with a very different perspective on short or long-term side effects.
You’re not a bad parent and you’re not alone. In fact, you’re in the right place!
