3 Easy Steps to Prevent Drug Addiction For Parents

Sunday, December 11, 2016

This topic is mainly from my personal experience and some are from things I found online. I will provide additional links below for you to be familiar with this topic.

In Re-Re we believe that parents play a vital role in preventing drug addiction for their children. They are the once who are with them 24/7.  So I have compiled these for them to know how to prevent drug addiction for their teens.


1. Know the dangers of using drugs. As a parent you have to educate yourself on the dangers of using drugs. By educating yourself you can also educate your children. Share what you know but not your prejudice. Always remember: Drugs destroy Health, Work and Relationships.
2. Know your children. You have to be aware of your children's whereabouts. You have to know who they hangout with.
3. You have to encourage your children to make positive decisions in life. You should also be aware of the choices they make. 
4. Do not hesitate to ask for help. The Re-Re program is always ready to help you.

 Most parents failed to do this. Parenting doesn't stop by providing more than enough on the table. You have to communicate to your children. Give them emotional security. Take opportunities to talk. Let them know how you feel about drugs but don't scare them. Be realistic. Say what you mean and mean what you say because the point you are trying to make is really what matters. Don't just talk, LISTEN TO THEM. 


You have to create a safe environment for your children. You have to be involved. Be a Bogo City Drug Warrior. Be vigilant. Report suspicious behaviors. And cooperate with your neighbors.
