PARTNERSHIP FOR A DRUG-FREE AMERICA – One

Talking about alcohol, tobacco and other drugs with teens is not easy. Take advantage of everyday “teachable moments” and develop an ongoing dialogue with your teen. Teachable moments refer to events in life that allow you to use an example to talk about the bad effects of drugs, such as a news story about drugs. Your children may roll their eyes at your questions, but remember: no matter what they say, your children are counting on you to be the grown up.
