Drugs Alcohol & Your Children

Geraldine Youcha, Author Crown Publishers $15.95 (180p) ISBN 978-0-517-57102-6
The authors of Children of Alcoholism here provide a commonsense guide for parents confronted with drug use by their children. They compile an extensive list of ``warning signs'' of conditions parents should be alert to in order to help children avoid pitfalls at each developmental stage, and of the steps to take when children of any age fall victim to drug and alcohol abuse. Parents, pre-teens, early teenagers and young adults, along with specialists in the treatment and rehabilitation sector, are heard in this comprehensive coverage of an increasingly serious societal problem. Treatment modes, a drug dictionary, parenting skills (particularly that of listening), referral sources are among the useful elements of this guide. (Mar.)
