Let's face it. Growing up just isn't what it used to be. Through music, movies and the web, kids today are hammered by adult ideas and images and pushed to make important choices at an age when most of us worried about getting a date or a driver's license. So, how does a busy, modern day parent keep up? One of the most important things you can do is spend time together and talk about important issues like drinking and drugs. Like any relationship, the relationship with your child needs to grow. What you say about drugs and alcohol is much different to a preschooler than a 10th grader.
Find your child's grade and learn more about what you should include in your talk with them.
