Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101 – Teens, Dating, Under the Influence

What is the best teen dating advice if your teen is “dating under the influence?” This show explores the cultural crisis our teens are facing including teen pregnancies, teen dating abuse and violence and especially the impact of teen drug and alcohol abuse in dating. Lisa Jander, the Teen Whisperer, does not promote teen dating but helps families build a healthy framework for all relationships and supports better dating choices.

Lisa Jander is a Certified Life/Relationship/Dating Coach, CTACC, Public Speaker and Author of “Dater’s Ed: The Instruction Manual for Parents ” modeled after the Driver’s Ed manual. Her unique workshops draw analogies between driving and dating to help parents teach their teens how to “date defensively, navigate safely and steer clear of unhealthy relationships.”

For other valuable resources, Lisa recommends Break the Cycle , empowering youth to end domestic violence and Start Strong , building healthy teen relationships.
