The older children get, the tougher the questions they ask their parents. Questions like:
Why do people drink? Why do some get in trouble with alcohol? Is alcohol fun? Is alcohol really that bad for you?
Making it even more difficult to answer these questions is the fact — believe it or not — most parents probably know far less about what alcohol truly does to the human body than they do about about the harmful effects of soda, antibiotics, and fever reducers. Mom and Dad, here’s your chance to teach your kids more than you knew at their ages (and maybe more than you know right now!). Let bestselling author Annie Grace arm you with evidence — no rules, just facts (not boring!) and easy to explain brain science — all the things she wishes she’d known before her first drink.
With relatable storytelling and cool illustrations, Buzz to Buzzkill: How Alcohol and Dopamine Hack Your Brain explains basic facts so you can help your kids understand what really happens to the brain when people drink.
