What To Do If Your Teen Is Making Dangerous Choices

Speaking to your kids about drugs and alcohol isn’t easy. You want them to be safe, but you also want them to be able to talk to you about anything.

On this episode, Jo and Ginni tackle two questions about this tricky topic. One from a mum who’s found out her step-daughter is taking drugs and isn’t sure what to do, and another who wants to know the best way to talk to kids about substances you’ve tried yourself.
