How to Teach Your Child to Avoid Drugs?

There's no way which can help you be sure about your child's safety. You can only push him or her by means of telling how dangerous and deplorable the consequences of using drugs may be. In other cases, everything is up only to a child, because unless he or she realises the harmful effect on his a her body and mind, you'll never be sure about whether a child will be capable of not trying it.

How to Teach Your Child to Avoid Drugs?

Do plenty of research on drugs before you talk to your kids about them. Don't believe anything that public service announcements or government commercials say about drugs. Also, don't trust news stories. These are known to exaggerate facts about drugs, or just flat out lie. For true, knowledgeable information, and up to date information, look online for professionals that you may be able to contact in your area who deal with drug addictions. Avoid any drugs. Don't listen to anybody.

Make sure that what you tell your child is factual and true. If you tell them that marijuana can kill you, which it can't, then they are bound to find out eventually that it won't. They will be hurt that you lied to them, and will have trouble believing other things you say.

How to Teach Your Child to Avoid Drugs?

If your child is going through a traumatic experience, such as the death of a loved one, then it's a good idea to put them in therapy to work out their problems. Often adult drug users have had an extremely traumatic experience in their younger years, such as getting raped or molested, a divorce or death in the family, etc.

How to Teach Your Child to Avoid Drugs?

You should try to tell them about drugs more than once. Its important to start before they hit puberty, at the age of about ten. If they are clearly not interested, then try again some other time. Remember not to lie when talking about drugs. Lying to them is like asking them to do drugs.

Stay close, speak about the dangers
According to experts on drug therapy, the most effective defense against drugs is to the child a warm, safe home. The house where parents can talk freely about everything, feeling their love and attention. Any teenager needs to prepare for a possible meeting with people who offer drugs. How to prepare them?
- Read with your child books and articles showing the consequences of this dependence.
- Discuss your problems. Ask the child, offered him drugs at school or on the street. Ask what he thinks about it, does he realize the seriousness of this issue.
Explain. Tell your child about the principles of drug action. Explain the reasons why people become addicted. Do not exaggerate, and really outline the problem.
- Teach your child to say "no". Explain to him that he has the right to withdraw at any time. No one can force him to do anything. It's his life and only he himself can decide what it will be.

How to Teach Your Child to Avoid Drugs?

Make sure that when you give your child a drug lesson that its in terms they can understand.
Keep it age appropriate. For example, a nine or ten-year-old is just starting to notice drugs, and will need plenty of information that is re-inforced over the years. If your child is already fifteen or sixteen, on the other hand, then they probably already know a lot about drugs. In most towns, DARE begins in the 6th grade. However, you child may have even broader experience. It's more than likely that someone at their school uses, and they chalk that up to experience, too.

Learn tolerance for users of drugs. Do not judge someone negatively just because they use drugs. Treat drug users as you would anyone else. Just because they use drugs doesn't mean they are bad people, it means they are people who are using drugs.Chances are that your child will want to taste your wine/beer. Let them have a sip. Most children don't like the taste of alcohol, but some might enjoy it. Remind them the proper way to use drugs.

Remember not to lie when talking about drugs. Lying to them is like asking them to do drugs. There is another very important technique when talking with your child about drugs. Never, ever, ever, EVER tell them not to do drugs. This is especially important in older kids and teenagers. Most teenagers go through phases of rebellion and being "bad".

How to Teach Your Child to Avoid Drugs?

When you forbid them not to do something, especially drugs, it only makes them want to do it more. Tell them that drugs can be harmful, and can be addicting, and they can ruin your life, but don't tell them that they cannot do it. Your child may become fascinated with drugs, and you may find them researching on the internet and the library about drugs. The knee-jerk reaction is to freak out that they are on drugs, but that is not a good idea. It's a very good thing that they are researching drugs, because that means they are getting the information about drugs you want them to get.
