Partnership for Drug-Free Kids Launches Vaping Resource for Parents
The Partnership launched a new Vaping Guide, a resource to help parents talk with their kids about the risks of vaping.
Marijuana, legal or otherwise, is a hot topic, so it is more important than ever for parents to protect their kids’ health and development by addressing this issue early and often. Not only is the mentality around marijuana changing, but the dialogue used to talk with your teen about drugs is as well. Research shows that lecturing, tough love, using scare tactics and one-way conversations are highly ineffective in getting your points and concerns heard by teenagers.
So what should this new drug talk look like? What can you say? What if your teen pushes back? Check out our brand new resource for parents and caregivers, “How to Talk With Your Teen About Marijuana.” This short guide can point you in the right direction and equip you with the right words and tools to help you have a productive conversation with your teen.
