One of the most complex challenges any parent, and especially a single parent faces, is the detection of underage alcohol and drug use.  Similarly complex is trying to intervene appropriately with teens who are using alcohol or drugs. Sadly, over 5000 young people die every year as a direct result of underage drinking.  As parents we rightfully expect our kids to try stuff as they grow up.  But staying on top of this insidious problem is horribly complicated and especially if we ourselves drink.  This show summarize the facts about underage alcohol and drug use and arms parents with some strategies for dealing with their teens who are using.
