Let’s talk it over
Being a parent isn’t easy. You want your child to have a wide range of experiences and grow into a successful, independent adult. At the same time, you want to protect them from the many dangerous substances and situations out there in the world.
So what do you do? It’s actually simpler than you may think. Talk it over. Tell your child what you know about drugs, alcohol, and other risky behaviors, including your family history—and what you want them to understand. Ask questions about their opinions and preferences. Listen. Let them know how much you care about them and their future.
Choose the topic you’re interested in, and let’s get the conversation started.
December is National Impaired Driving Prevention Month
Driving Impaired Prevention Month is the perfect time to remind adults not to drive while impaired by alcohol, drugs, prescription medications or distracted driving. Each ornament colored and hung this holiday season is a child’s wish for the adults they love not to drive while impaired.
