How can I help my teen avoid alochol and drug problems?

Helping Teens Avoid Alcohol and Drug Abuse

A recent study was published in the September issues of the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry advocating that spirituality is important to children in helping them avoid alcohol and drug abuse. A key to helping your child develop spiritually is to find a church to attend WITH your child that teaches about having an “active personal relationship” with God. Caution: Spiritual food is needed on a daily basis, it is not a one-time thing. Just as we feed our bodies daily to keep from being malnourished, our spiritual body needs daily food to keep it healthy.
