Drug Abuse Prevention Starts with Parents
|CONNECTED KIDS: As a parent, you have a major impact on your child's decision whether or not to use tobacco, alcohol, or other drugs. Be sure to encourage your child to make healthy choices and friendships and to always set a positive example through your own actions. Good communication between you and your child is a great way to prevent drug abuse, but if talking with your child becomes a problem, ask your pediatrician for help.|
