Talking to Your Kids about Drugs and Alcohol


Don't put off talking to your child about alcohol and other drugs.  Kids worry about pressure to use alcohol and other drugs even in elementary grades.  School programs aren't enough.  Parents must become involved, but many aren't sure how to talk with their children about drugs.  A main reason children choose not to use drugs is because they are afraid of disappointing their parents--so talk to them now!  Here are some tips for raising drug-free children in the twenty first century.

Team up with other parents.  Form or join a parent group that provides information on child rearing and facts on alcohol and other drugs.  Support one another in coping with your children's concerns and problems.
