The Service Line
In tennis, the service line is the point from which you give it your best shot.
We cover a wide range of subjects that matter to children and adolescents — and adults who love and care for them. Sometimes our writing speaks directly to young people. Other times, it’s aimed at the, ahem, “older crowd.” Either way, we hope you’ll check in regularly to see what’s new, share your perspective and ask questions. Sometimes, we’ll even feature Dr. T’s responses to the questions he receives, so feel free to add yours to the pile.
Among the topics you’ll see explored here most frequently:
- Substance abuse and addiction — and the science that should shape our nation’s public policymaking, but often doesn’t.
- How kids can grow up with healthy views of competition and sports.
- General relationship issues. Dr. T hears a lot from teenagers and young adults who are trying to figure out how to have healthy relationships with their parents, friends — and love interests.
