Parents have more influence over their child than friends, music, TV, the Internet and celebrities.

Kids who learn a lot about the risks of drugs and alcohol from their parents are up to 50% less likely to use than those who do not.

Help your teen stay safe and make healthy choices by:

  • Talking and listening regularly

  • Being directly involved in your child’s everyday world

  • Making it clear that you do not want him or her drinking or using drugs

  • Setting limits
