Bonus Episode: This episode is from an archive of Brooke’s previous show, “The Naked Mom.”
It’s time for sex and drugs and…parenting questions. Dr. Drew, a board-certified physician and one of America’s foremost addiction medicine specialists is here to get into a host of issues surrounding raising kids (and 20-somethings), how to talk to them about drugs and sex, digital safety, college admissions, setting boundaries and other important, under-discussed topics. Brooke illustrates one of the most dangerous, sensitive issues of the digital age with a personal story. Then, Brooke and Dr. Drew get into all the stuff that everyone with kids is forced to confront: Should you lie to your kids whether you did drugs in high school? What kinds of boundaries work with teens? Should you let the kids “party” at home? Is waiting until 21 to drink better or worse than starting younger? How do you know if your child has a drug problem? How did we get into our national problem with opiates? How do people get off of opiates? Is there therapeutic value to Ayahuasca, LSD and other psychedelics for trauma, addiction, death and dying and other issues? How is alcoholism positive? What does ‘al-anon’ mean? How do you talk birth control with your daughter without endorsing her having sex before she’s ready? What issues do young males also face issues in a social and digital landscape that isolates them from their peers and from the practice of dating? What do you do when your kids walk in on you having sex? What are the downsides of sexting? Drew is a practicing MD who also hosts multiple podcasts: “The Dr. Drew Podcast,” “The Adam & Drew Podcast,” “Weekly Infusion” and “This is Life Podcast,” as well as a daily radio show, “Midday Live with Dr. Drew and Mike Catherwood” on 790-KABC in Los Angeles.
