Family is the first line of fighting against drugs. Often parents try to defend their child from bad habits like smoking, drug use, or alcohol drinking.
It is an important fact that more than 60% of teenagers scared to disappoint their parents or be unable to find the respect of family members if they use drugs, alcohol, or even tobacco.
Here we are present a few advices how you can obtain some control of your teen’s activities. Even if you kids don’t like it, it’s not harassment, its process of parenting.
1. Set up rules in your family. Make tobacco smoking, illegal drugs and alcohol drinking unacceptable for your entire family. Try to demonstrate healthy lifestyle your selves.
2. Congratulate and reward achievements with good activities and actions like sports, school tests, hobby. At another hand don’t forget to enforce punishment for cases of bad behavior.
