ONE TOKE: A Survival Guide for Teens
Marc Aronoff, author

Children/Young Adult; Self-Help & Relationships; (Market)

 

Over two million teens smoke pot, some everyday, and ONE TOKE: A Survival Guide for Teens by Marc Aronoff, MA LMHC, is the first book to address this fact in a straight-forward and useful manner. Written by a licensed mental health counselor who has worked with youth at risk for over 20 years, the book is about making smart decisions and harm reduction, offering clear, cogent counsel for teens and parents who are open to guidance about the realities of smoking pot. Geared for teens who are either considering smoking pot or already smoking, ONE TOKEis a no-nonsense guide, covering all the subject matters associated with teen marijuana use, from peer pressure to addiction, and from pot smoking parents to politics.

Written in short vignettes, ONE TOKE guides young people on how to be smart about pot use. If a young person chooses to smoke marijuana, there is a need to be skillful about it and knowing how to smoke smart is essential for maintaining safety and success both at home or school. Smart means knowing how to make good choices, communicate effectively, and being true to yourself. For teens, ONE TOKE answers a myriad of issues that society has difficult talking about, like Why Start?" and "Secrets and Lies."

For parents, the book offers insight as to what actually happens with their teens and marijuana use and what a "good enough" parent looks like. For the author, who has worked with youth at risk for over 20 years, the book is meant to serve as a catalyst for further thought and discussion among peers and parents. With color illustrations by award winning graphic artist, Earl Cavanah, the book is sure help both young people and parents alike approach and ultimately deepen their understanding about a controversial yet ever-evolving subject.

“Marc Aronoff has started a conversation with ONE TOKE that addresses where marijuana fits, and doesn't fit, in the lives of our teenagers. In the end, this conversation is about so much more than weed.”

--- John Evans, teen psychologist and author of Marathon Dad.

 

 

Reviews
A Great Book For Teens!!

One Toke: A Survival Guide for Teens is a great book. For one, let's all be honest. If a teen is going to smoke, then they're going to do it whether you give them permission or not. Honestly, I'd rather my kid be up front with me so that's why I bought this book. I thought it'd be a good way of bridging the subject with my son and let him know that I'm not really judging him. I just want to make sure he knows why he is smoking and if it really is the right thing for him. This book was perfect as I discussed it with him, and just by talking to him without judging, we were able to discuss several things from the book almost right away. Not only did it help him with some questions he had about marijuana but it also helped establish better communication between us.

Rather controversially, One Toke: A Survival Guide For Teens is essentially education for kids who choose to smoke weed. It doesn't advocate marijuana smoking, but it does talk about the facts of how it works, what the risks are, and how to best do it safely.

Similar to sex ed, some kids are going to do it no matter how much we tout "just say no" and this book is intelligently aware of that fact and aims to educate children rather than keeping the blinders on. It's well written and researched, and I'd happily hand it to my teen knowing that if she chooses to begin this habit (which I'd obviously prefer she not), she'll be armed with accurate information.

Excellent book for my teenage daughters, August 14, 2014

Let's be real! With more and more states legalizing marijuana, it's becoming less about the legality of smoking pot and more about the pros and cons of smoking. That's exactly why I bought One Toke: A Survival Guide for Teens for my teenage daughters.I wanted them to understand it in detail. I wanted them to understand that there's not necessarily anything wrong with smoking, but that if they're going to do it, they need to understand how to be safe and the reasons why they smoke. After reading the book, they did come to me with questions so it was nice to talk to them about it. They're smart girls and there's really nothing wrong with smoking pot, but with this book, they can feel at ease with what they're doing and know the smart way of doing it. Great Book!
