Drugs and your children

Don’t assume your child will never be offered illicit drugs or will know how to avoid pressures to take drugs.

  • Be aware of what drugs are around and the risks of each of them pose for your children
  • Find out about the social and personal rewards children receive in taking them
  • Get involved and talk to your children about drug use, the pressures they feel etc.

Activities:

Try a continuous story

Tell your child a story featuring them as the main character, and add a new episode each day or week.

Tips:

Encourage reading

Set the example, provide the opportunity, and actively support your children as they learn to read.
