As a parent, the things you say and do have a tremendous influence on the decisions your child makes – especially when it comes to using drugs or alcohol. Research shows that kids who learn a lot about the risks of drugs from their parents are up to 50% less likely to use. By talking with your kids about drugs and alcohol, you can help them make better choices and live safer, healthier lives.

Starting the conversation with your kids and keeping communication open is never easy — but it’s also not as difficult as you may think. Conversations are one of the most powerful tools parents can use to connect with — and protect — their kids. But, when tackling some of life’s tougher topics, especially those about drugs and alcohol, just figuring out what to say can be a challenge.

Whether you're having trouble finding the time or finding the right words, support and resources are available at

Visit the website and you will find information along with helpful scripts developed by professionals to help you get conversations going with your child. Talking tips include topics for preschool, elementary school, middle school, high school and young adults.
