The Office of Drug Policy and the BSU RADAR Center is excited to present the Be The Parents Book Club, the first in a series of events focused on supporting parents navigating parenting challenges in our modern age. Our first book, “Crazy Stressed – Saving Today’s Overwhelmed Teens with Love, Laughter, and the Science of Resilience” by Dr. Michael Bradley focuses on the pre-teen and teen years and provides tools to discourage drug and alcohol experimentation by our youth.
We encourage parents to spend the summer reading Dr. Bradley’s book, submit questions and then join us for a virtual meeting with the author, where he will answer questions submitted by book club members.
Dr. Bradley has noted that teens are experiencing unprecedented levels of stress related to anxiety, depression, drug abuse, and suicidal behaviors, levels of suffering that mimic those of veterans returning from deployments. Dr. Bradley is not only an experienced adolescent psychologist. He is also a father and a veteran of the US Army. His compassion for parents and teens as they navigate today’s unique struggles is evident in how he interacts with people.
