Drugs: Talking with your Teen
Don’t lecture. Let the facts speak for themselves. Preaching and scare tactics don’t work.
Be respectful. Don’t Interrupt, argue or make fun of what your teen says. Ask questions to make sure you understand.
If you don’t know the answer to a question, say so. Suggest hat the two of you find out together.
Talk more than once. Building communication takes ongoing effort.
