Helping Parents Prevent Youth Substance Abuse

Team Sports

Being involved in school helps teens stay drug free. 

Did you know that teenagers are more likely to participate in healthy behaviors and succeed in school when they feel connected to school?

Be involved in your child's schooling. Set time for homework and be available to help. Attend parent teacher conferences and be in tune with how your child is performing.

Be wary of punishing poor performance, but look instead for opportunities to work together with your child on increasing their performance.
