Grown Ups Show Up Campaign
The Conversation Starts with You. Kids look to their parents for guidance on tricky issues and that includes making decisions about drugs and alcohol. It’s never too early to talk to your children.
Set Goals for Your Conversations. Establishing a foundation of honesty and trust and showing your child you care about your child’s health, wellness and success are just examples of what you can accomplish by talking to your kids.
Starting “the Conversation”. It can be challenging to broach the subject of drugs and alcohol.
Responses Matter. Your child may argue, stay silent, or ask tough questions. How you respond makes a big difference.
Setting Rules. Setting and enforcing rules for young people is not always easy but it shows you care and helps kids know your expectations.
