How to talk to your kids about Substance Use

HELP KEEP KIDS SAFE     For more tips, visit: http://bit.ly/monitorteens 

Here are some tips to help you talk to your students – of all ages – about drugs and alcohol. To help guide the conversation, SAMHSA has created two free resources:

The Sound of Your Voice is a short animated video that encourages parents to talk with their young adults about the potential consequences of underage alcohol use.

Talking With Your College-Bound Young Adult About Alcohol is a companion guide that emphasizes the continuing influence parents have over alcohol use decisions by their older children. This short guide offers tips on when and how to have the conversation.

SAMHSA encourages parents to view and use these resources and to share them with fellow parents. High school and college administrators can help by displaying the materials during Parent–Teacher Association meetings, college tours, and other events involving college-bound students and parents.
