Sue Scheff: Teenage Substance Abuse

samhsaAlmost on a daily basis I receive emails from caring parents, educators, and others that work with today’s teens and children asking me to share their information.  At my organization, Parents’ Universal Resource Experts, it is about parents helping parents and with this, I will continue to share great websites, articles, parenting tips and more.
