This brief video illustrates how parents can talk with their children about the prevention of alcohol and drug abuse, and how these conversations change from primary school through to university.
This video provides appropriate guidance for parents about when is an appropriate time to start talking to children about drugs, how to broach these topics, and common reactions to expect. It also briefly updates parents about issues related to the increased availability of drugs via the internet. With a simple but important message, this very brief video provides a very useful starting point for busy parents.
