Positive Parenting Prevents Drug Abuse

posted on

The National Institute on Drug Abuse has a great resource for families. It's called Family Check UP and addresses the 5 following topics, providing resources for how to talk with your family about each: 

  • Communication
  • Encouragement
  • Negotiation
  • Setting Limits
  • Supervision

From NIDA's website: "These five questions, developed by the Child and Family Center at the University of Oregon, highlight parenting skills that are important in preventing the initiation and progression of drug use among youth.  For each question, a video clip shows positive and negative examples of the skill and additional videos and information are provided to help you practice positive parenting skills."

Parenting teens is hard work, and these pages have a lot of basic, helpful information.
