"Mommy Juice" "Rose all Day" "Wine-O-Clock" - What does it mean to be a "wine mom" - and more, what does it mean for our kids? Do we have a problem or will our kids? Let's explore it all - desire, dependence, abuse, alcoholism and what's appropriate for our kids with Dr. Deena Manion, an addictions specialist.
She will guide those of us with kids older than ten, with what to expect, what to question and if we need to lock up the liquor. She will answer questions on how we might talk about drinking, edibles, and other substances. Give us the facts about rates of use among parents and kids. How to not be the "cool parent" but the right-level-of-responsible one. What does peer pressure look like today? And how we might prepare our kids for the drinking habits on college campuses.
