TIPS TO TALK TO YOUR KIDS
As fall semesters kick off across the nation, millions of American students head to universities. While academic pursuits dominate, many face the lure of partying and substance experimentation. It's crucial for parents to discuss the risks of alcohol and drugs with their children.
On the subject of drugs, many parents often don’t know even how to begin broaching this subject. That is particularly true if parents have had little to no experience with drugs in their own lives. But parents see the news reports, and they hear the warnings. Drug use is becoming more common, more dangerous, and more deadly.
It's hard for a parent to know when their child is lying about drinking or using drugs and when they should begin to take action. We shed some light on this subject for parents and caretakers.
The unique struggle that a parent of a drug user faces should not be wished on anyone. When a mother and father have a son or daughter who falls prey to drug addiction or an alcohol habit, this becomes a cruel and entrapping, even devastating, problem for them.
Parents worry about their kids constantly. It’s just a part of being a parent. No matter their kids’ age, parents seem to worry, showing concern for their kids from birth into childhood, to adolescence, to their teen years, and even through adulthood.
