Parents, caregivers and other adults are important role models for children when it comes to drug education. Children watch and copy what these important adults say and do.
Many parents think their children will ask about drugs when they need to know something but children may not always take the first step. It’s up to you to raise the topic.
Keeping the lines of communication open between you and your child will make it easier for you both to have a clear understanding of each other’s attitude to drugs.
