Let's Talk About Drugs

Margaret is happy to go birthday shopping with her grandmother, but unhappy about Grandma's smoking. Having learned in school that it's okay to ask a grown-up not to smoke if it's done politely, she talks to Grandma about how she feels. Grandma sees her point and gives Margaret a fun-filled, smoke-free day. Margaret had fun, but her feet got sore. She asks her father for pills to feel better. He explains that there are no pills for sore feet; he also reminds Margaret that she should take medicine only from him, her mother, or a doctor. From a cousin, Margaret learns the virtues of caffeine-free over regular soda; why alcohol is only for adults; and why trying on adult behaviors is not a smart thing for kids to do.
