As you probably remember from your own teen years, being a teenager can be extremely tough. Sometimes, emotional and peer pressures cause teens to take drugs—before this happens, parents should be prepared to act.
In this short video, two public health nurses discuss the common signs of teenage substance abuse. If your teen has experienced a sudden change in friends, appearance, or academic performance, you should sit down with him or her for a sincere discussion. During this talk, it’s important to listen carefully to everything your teen has to say and be prepared to offer compassionate support.
