Topic: Don't give up - think positive
By chance I was talking to a teen who said that when his parents drink they talk abusively. He said he usually goes in his room and locks the door. He also said he feels lonely. He is too embarrassed to text his friends. Solution: Get on the Alateen Facebook and pour your heart out. You can confide anything. You'll probably inspire others to tell their stories. Never heard of Alateen? Just in case here is a brief definition that Alateen has on its web site: "Alateen meetings are where teens can find support and understanding from people their own age who are going through similar difficulties." Check them out. Alateen has a great web site.
