Support Booklet – “Don’t Lose the Head”
“Parents who talk to their children about drugs and know what they are doing and who they are with, can reduce the chances of their children using drugs.” – Biglan et al, 2004, cited in www.drugprevention.gc.ca
This booklet has been written for parents/guardians as well as others who take care of children and young people e.g. extended family members such as grandparents, older siblings or aunts/uncles. Remember, the earlier a parent/guardian starts to talk to their child about drugs and alcohol the better.
