How can I help prevent my child from taking alcohol or drugs

As a parent, it is important to remember that you do have an important influence on your child’s life.  The following factors can help prevent children from taking drugs:

  • A loving family that provides support and encouragement for all family members
  • A family that builds positive relationships between parents and young people
  • Knowing where our children are, what they are doing and who they are with
  • Giving our young people clear and consistent messages about drugs and alcohol
  • Helping our children feel good about themselves and to deal with their feelings and emotions in a positive way
  • Encouraging our children to develop friendships with peers who are a positive influence
