The 4-1-1 on Surviving Teenhood book cover

Michele Sfakianos, RN, BSN


This is a book to help parents and teens to navigate the obstacles that teens face today. Teens are known to be irresponsible, messy, hormonal, and rude. It is time to change the way adults view teenagers. Teens today are faced with drugs, teen pregnancy, texting or sexting, alcohol, peer pressure, bullying, and other dangers. Why do our teens use drugs and alcohol, gamble, or fall prey to other destructive behaviors such as eating disorders or cutting? We will walk through these and other scenarios, and I will offer guidance on how to get through it.
