Editorial Reviews

Review

“This should be required reading for every parent of a child. Addiction has claimed the children of too many. Having the information and maintaining parental vigilance is a great start. The tools are found between the covers of this well-crafted book.” (Judge Judy Sheindlin )

“This wonderful book will help you answer some tough questions and give you a roadmap for tackling one of the hardest tasks as a parent.” (Jamie Lee Curtis, mother, actress, and author of children’s books )

“The revised edition of How To Raise A Drug-Free Kid makes an already terrific book for parents even better. The book’s focus on engaged and informed parenting is a very powerful approach. The book provides many ideas and very practical tips for parents on navigating the tumultuous waters of raising a child, and raising a child drug-free." (Joseph Woolston, MD, Albert J. Solnit Professor of Pediatrics and Child Psychiatry, Yale Child Study Center )

“This revised edition of Joe Califano’s book, How To Raise A Drug-Free Kid, adds plenty of practical advice gleaned from both scientific literature and tips from parents. I recommend it with enthusiasm to parents and teachers.” (Herb Kleber, MD, professor of psychiatry and director, Division on Substance Abuse, Columbia University and New York State Psychiatric Institute )

“The author seems to peer under every rock and pebble to help parents understand which kids are most at risk, when the risks are highest, how to combat the issue, and more. From specific information about individual drugs to how to recognize abuse and seek treatment, this title is the 'Bible' on kids and substance abuse.” (Library Journal)
