Cause and Effect

In life, if you do something, there’s an effect. What you did is the cause and what happened is the effect. D.A.R.E. tells kids about this. Cause and effect isn’t necessarily good or bad. It’s just what happens. D.A.R.E. wants kids to have a good effect of what they do, which means they want kids ( and adults ) to stop alcohol EVEN MORE. They also teach cause and effect to you so you can be logical. Remember this though- If you do something bad you get something bad. If you do something good you get something good. Look below for examples of cause and effect.
