Stimulate your child’s interest

Watch suitable educational TV programs with your children (e.g. David Attenborough documentaries). Perhaps ask your children to take turns to identify a current news story that they would like the family to discuss over dinner. Or ask each child to research a famous person they are interested in or who share their birthday, and invite them to share what they have learned with the family.

Tips:

Help your child to stay away from drugs

Talking through the issues and supporting your children can help guide them in dealing with drugs.

Tips:

Avoid the good cop, bad cop trap

If you are separated from your partner, disciplining your children can become more difficult.
