How to intervene when your child has experimented with drugs

January 20, 2016 0 Comments


Parents exert the most influence on their kids when it comes to alcohol and drugs. Recent research discovered that two out of three teenage kids who abstain from alcohol and drugs do so to avoid losing their parents’ respect. But what happens if a child has already begun to experiment with drugs or alcohol?

Before it’s too late, intervening might be your only option to reach out to your child and communicate the repercussions of his actions in an effective manner. If you decide to do so, it might be better for you to pause and think about how you will approach the issue.
