Protect your kid from Troubles

Even good small town parents can underestimate what their kids can get into.  There is nothing worse than finding out when it is too late that your kid is using drugs or having a mental health issue.  Avoiding teenage troubles is what you moved into a small town for isn’t it? 

Tom Barthel founded Street Smart Counselling.  He draws from his experience as a drug dealer, drug user, and mentally ill person who tried to commit suicide.  Now, leading a successful life, he shares with parents what they need to know in regards to their children.  

This way they will know what to do, and what not to do, and what can be done to prevent an addiction and mental health problem.

These strategies work to begin prevention in children as young as 12 years old, and help recover addictions and mental health issues in people as old as 30.  This course addresses attitude problems as well.

Parents will learn:

  • The first action you need to take to prevent an addiction and troubles.
  • The first thing you do if your child already has addictions and troubles.
  • Myths about drug use and addiction that are not serving you.
