For all parents worried about how their kids will respond to drugs, alcohol, the internet, computer games, and more, this funny and accessible guide holds the key

It shows parents how they can help their kids become happy, well-adjusted young adults--and avoid the pitfalls. A simple message--you have all the skills you need--provides moms and dads with the insight to approach parenting challenges as they would other challenges in life, rather than slipping into "parent mode." This refreshing approach includes case histories that provide real answers to the problems parents face every day.
