How can a parent speak to their kids about drug abuse without using scare tactics or feeling like they are “preaching”?
There is nothing more important to you as a parent than your child’s well-being. Knowing the extent of the drug problem in our society, you naturally want to protect your child from the destruction drugs can cause to them physically, mentally and emotionally. But when you talk to them about drugs, how do you know they’re even listening?
Give them the truth about drugs and they will listen. It has been conclusively found that when young people are given the facts about drugs and their harmful effects, they decide on their own not to take them. So, how do you educate them before a dealer gets to them?
That’s where The Foundation for a Drug-Free World can help.
Our program provides factual information and real-life stories that get through to young people, causing them to
actually change their mindset about using drugs.
The information in these materials could save your child’s life or the life of someone you know.
The Truth About Drugs kit includes:
The Truth About Drugs booklet, the centerpiece of the 13-booklet The Truth About Drugs series
Creating A Drug-Free World DVD, with award-winning PSAs and a preview of The Truth About Drugs documentary; (ADDY Award - Gold Award for Public Service).
The Truth About Drugs Activities Manual.
The Foundation for a Drug-Free World is a nonprofit public benefit corporation that empowers youth and adults with factual information about drugs so they can make informed decisions and live drug free.
No one, especially a young person, likes to be lectured about what he or she can or cannot do. Thus, we provide the facts that empower youth to choose not to take drugs in the first place. Additionally our Truth About Drugs campaign consists of activities that they can join which popularize drug-free living. These activities are simple, effective and can involve people of all ages.
