Explain to your child the consequences of drugs and alcohol and apply these to their daily life. How would being high affect extra-curricular activities or academic performance? Will drug and alcohol use stop the pursuit of personal goals?
Parents, sometimes faith and prayer is not enough. As parents, we know this to be true. Consider the perfect parent: God the Father. He created humans and gave us the opportunity to live eternally at peace with Him, the world, the animals and other persons. Yet, the first people, Adam and Eve, still chose to “eat the apple.” The Partnership at Drug Free is a website dedicated to assisting parents with preventing and dealing with drug abuse by their children. Drugfree.org is packed with resources for parents to prevent and handle it when a child is addicted to drugs or alcohol.
