“The Big 5” Addiction Concerns – What Can Parents Do? with Dr Aaron Weiner, PhD

June 24 @ 7:00 pm

$10.00, Live Webinar: June 24, 7pm CST (60 min)

Teens and tweens are understandably going to experiment with their independence and decision-making, but how can parents tell the difference between “normal” exploration and an escalating problem that merits concern? Join Dr. Weiner to discuss “the big five” most common addictions teens and tweens stumble into (alcohol, THC, gaming, social media, and nicotine), understand why teens and tweens are most vulnerable to these substances and/or behaviors, and what parents can do about it.
