Not My Kid:
Drug and Alcohol Information Every Parent Should Know
My Role As a Parent
What can you do, as a parent, to help your child grow up to make responsible decisions about drugs and alcohol?
- Talk to your child about the risks of drug and alcohol use.
- Be a good listener. When your child talks to you about social situations, help him/her come up with appropriate solutions.
- Be a good example to your child by not abusing alcohol or drugs. Children whose parents abuse alcohol or drugs are at a greater risk for misuse or abuse later in life.
- Spend time strengthening the bond with your child.
