To Listen and to Learn: Exploring Opportunities to Encourage Family Communication by Karen Bankston( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first publication in the "Who's Raising the Family" series covers the critical issue of family communications and how parents and adolescents can talk and listen to each other about alcohol and other drugs (aod). Communication between parents and children is crucial in preventing alcohol and other drug use. While peer relationships take on increasing importance as children enter their teen years, it remains true that what parents think matters, even to teenagers. This booklet suggests some ways to encourage conversation with adolescent children and emphasizes the importance of the example that parents set in the home. Communication styles vary with different cultures and types of family structure, but no matter what communication style the family uses, setting rules for the child and sharing expectations is critical. Research makes it clear that adolescents value guidance from parents on alcohol and other drugs, but the way that guidance is offered affects how effectively the message is heard. In addition to effective communication within the family, parents must extend communication to their children's friends and the parents of those friends. Active listening to teenagers takes practice, but an open and supportive relationship will help protect the adolescent from aod. Thirteen resource organizations are listed for further information.

Whether people really have more or less free time than they did 20 years ago, it is undeniable that many families feel harried.

This booklet outlines signs of stress that may be affecting a child or family adversely. Suggestions are given for setting aside family time, expanding the day, and recognizing what is stressing the family. Keeping a time diary can provide insight into what causes stress. Stress management tips are given. (Contains 17 references.) (Sld)
Early Intervention: How Parents Can Help Adolescent Children Who May Be Using Drugs by Diane Franklin( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The earlier a parent can detect and respond to a child's involvement with alcohol and other drugs (aod), the better. Just as early detection heightens the cure rate for cancer, so too does early intervention increase the chances of ending aod use. This booklet outlines warning signs of aod use and lists the hazards of adolescent drug use. Suggestions are given on how to respond to evidence that the child is using aod. Even though the parent should be supportive, it is important to allow the child to face the natural or logical consequences of misuse or abuse of substances. It is important in the early intervention process to stay close to the child through monitoring. The booklet also includes ideas about where to turn for help and resources to help both parent and child. A comprehensive assessment, such as those provided by the University of Wisconsin's Adolescent Alcohol/Drug Abuse Intervention, can help parents understand the extent of the child's aod involvement. Parents and their children should understand that the road to recovery is not a smooth one, but that they do not have to travel it alone. (Contains 23 references.) (Sld)
Ties that Bind: Building and Maintaining Strong Parent-Child Relationships Through Family Traditions and Rituals by Diane Franklin( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet discusses the importance of family rituals as a way of staying connected to children as they move through adolescence. Family rituals give teens a sense of being part of a family that values its time together. Even something as simple as a family meal together can have great impact on maintaining a bond between parents and children. Another way to keep a family connected is to disconnect occasionally from electronic gadgets, including the television. Storytelling and celebrating cultural heritage are ways to foster a sense of family oneness. Five tips are given for creating family togetherness: (1) setting aside a family night; (2) scheduling regular get-togethers with the extended family; (3) creating unique family memories; (4) playing "remember when ... "; And (5) taking time to listen. (Contains 18 references.) (Sld)
