"I can't state it any more plainly than this: If you're a parent, you need to read this book." -- Jim Daly, President, Focus on the Family "Nobody has done more to help parents across the world deal with the issue of drugs and their children. I highly commend this book to you." -- Rob Parsons, Executive Chairman, Care for the Family and Author, Bringing Home the Prodigals "Parents often ask me for information that can help them communicate with young people about alcohol and drug use. At last here is a book that is engagingly written yet provides a wealth of relevant advice, information, and case studies. With this book Glenn Williams builds on his reputation for providing balanced and intelligent advice." -- John Toumbourou, Professor and Chair in Health Psychology, Deakin University, Melbourne, Australia
