Preventing Drug and Alcohol Abuse. MY view on Drug and Alcohol Prevention is to start with our kids at an early age to teach them to learn how to read, stay in school to get a good education, make positive choices in life and to learn positive communication skills. Also, if they learn that it is ok to talk and not keep things bottled up inside them they have a better chance of growing up with higher self-esteem and can have a better chance of handling more difficult challenges now and later.

 Preventing Drug And Alcohol Abuse

Author: M. Ann (Machen) Pritchard

Preventing Drug and Alcohol Abuse.
My view on Drug and Alcohol Prevention is to start with our kids at an early age to teach them to learn how to  read, stay in school to get a good education, make positive choices in life and to learn positive communication skills. Also, if they learn that it is ok to talk and not keep things bottled up inside them they have a better chance of growing up with higher self-esteem and can have a better chance of handling more difficult challenges now and later in life. They also need to feel that they are loved and supported by their family. If we give our children the tools that they need to be the best that they can be in life this world will be a better place.
I believe that we need to support them in whatever they want to be as long as it is a positive thing of course.
We as parents also need to be the role models for our kids. I have actually seen with my own eyes in my lifetime parents who allowed their young children to drink beer at the age of 3 and 4 years old. The parents thought it was funny but that made me very angry. Some people may say that it is none of my business but something like that I make it my business. A child's brain is still developing at those young ages and  if we don't love our children enough to protect them from Brain Damage at a young age we are just setting them up to become Alcoholics at a young age and they will have even more problems as they grow up. I have seen many things in my lifetime and that was the thing that upsets me the most. Even though Drug and Alcohol Addiction can be inherited it does not help things at all if we do things like those parents did.
I believe if we can prevent Drug and Alcohol Abuse that it can also reduce many Crimes, Violence, Child Abuse, Gangs, Domestic Violence, etc. in this world.
What I just wrote is my view on Preventing Drug and Alcohol Abuse.
Let me know your view and if you agree with what I wrote or disagree.
