Healthy Futures - Especially for Daughters

Listens: 12


How can I help my teen handle the pressures of adolescence? When should I start talking with my child about alcohol, dating and sex, and what should I say? Teens may act like they don't want to hear from their parents, but your guidance is key to helping them face the challenges ahead. The stories of families in Healthy Futures - Especially for Daughters can help you find the ways to talk to your children about difficult topics, stay involved in their lives, and provide the support they need to make healthy decisions.
