Annie Grace explores this topic – where the idea originated from, why it might appeal to some people, how hallucinogens affect us, and so much more! 

How To Talk To Your Kids About Alcohol

Wouldn’t it be great if our children never had to go through the pain and challenges we faced in our own relationship with alcohol?

Then this course is for you. It includes lifetime access to six video modules, a bonus recorded Q&A session where I answer questions from parents just like you, an interactive workbook, and our private and exclusive How To Talk To Your Kids About Alcohol online community where you can connect with others who are also navigating this important conversation.
