Talk To Your Children about Drugs and Alcohol

“I thought, ‘My child is too young.’ I didn’t know how many children in middle school are already trying drugs.”

MANY ADULTS ARE SURPRISED TO LEARN THAT IN MASSACHUSETTS:

More than 25% of 8th graders have used alcohol.
Nearly 8% have used marijuana.
20% of students have smoked their first cigarette before age 13.

WHAT CAN I DO TO PREVENT SUBSTANCE ABUSE? YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Research has shown that parents and other caring adults play an important role in  preventing substance abuse.
Teens who learn anti-drug messages at home are 42% less likely to use drugs.
33% of young people say that losing their parents’ respect and pride is one of the main reasons they don’t use drugs.
It’s important to remember that your children are listening to you even though they may not show it. Research shows, and young people confirm, that:
Children want you to set rules even though they may act angry or say their friends’ parents are not as strict.
What you think is still important, though they may seem to care more about the opinions of friends. Your children need you now more then ever.
