A comprehensive guide to parenting resources in Montgomery County (Maryland), this publication is divided into four chapters. "Getting more involved with your child" focuses on communication, inexpensive ways to have fun, parent involvement techniques, and suggested party tips with information about the legal consequences of serving alcohol to minors. "Raising a Drug-Free child" discusses how to teach your child skills for resisting drugs and alcohol, including how to use your "parent power" and "teachable moments.""How to get your child the help he or she needs" tells how to recognize signs of drug use and what to do if your child is high, stoned, or drunk. Treatment programs and other assistance are identified. The final chapter, "Where to find the help you need" has specific referrals for crisis situations, health matters, and other services for families. Each chapter offers advice on child rearing followed immediately by a listing of related community resources from YMCA classes to local events to local parent newsletters. (JBJ)
