Talking Tips

Just as you protect your kids against illnesses, you can help "immunize" them against drug use by giving them the facts before they're in a risky situation.

  • Be available for your children

    • Notice times when your kids are most likely to talk — for example, at bedtime, before dinner, in the car — and be available.
  • Let your kids know you're listening

    • When your children are talking about concerns, try to stop what you are doing and listen.
  • Respond in a way your children will hear

    • Soften strong reactions; kids will tune you out if you appear angry or defensive.
