Did You Know?

Teens tend to experiment with drugs and alcohol for the first time during summer vacation, according to a report released by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH).

Evidence suggests that on any given day during the months of June and July, approximately 11,000 teens under the age of 17 will consume alcohol for the first time, roughly 5,000 will start smoking marijuana, and an additional 5,000 will try smoking cigarettes.

Here are some tips to help protect your teen:

Set Rules: Clear rules are needed about activities and friends. Involve your teen in setting limits and consequences.

Understand and Communicate: Keep lines of communication open. Significant parent involvement is the most important factor in preventing drug use. Other adults can also provide support and encouragement.

Monitor Activities: Know each day what your teen has planned, where they will be, with whom, and what their schedule is. Have planned “check-ins.” Cell phones make this easy. Unmonitored teens are four times more likely to engage in drug use or other risky behaviors.

Make sure you stay involved: Know who their friends are and have a relationship with them. Talk to other parents, coaches and adults involved in your teen’s life. Without being intrusive, stay connected to let your teen know you care.

Encourage involvement in summer activities: Teens who are involved in Scouts, 4-H, sports, church or other youth activities have a focus for the summer. Other ideas: a job, camp or volunteer activity.

Reserve time for family: Even though teens may seem like they don’t want to spend time with their family, it is beneficial to have meals together, take a vacation and do other family activities. In a survey, when asked “What makes you happy?” the most frequent answer was spending time with family.
