As part of our work to support the global drug prevention community by providing evidence-based materials and information, we’re excited to announce the launch of a free parenting resource. This guide aims to offer parents and caregivers easily accessible information about drug prevention in order to help them raise empowered, healthy and drug free children. We have taken a number of high quality resources produced by some of the leading prevention organisations to create this guide.
The guide is divided into three sections to provide parents with tips to raise happy and healthy kids in their home, the school and the community.
I. HOME: Helping you to help your children develop good behaviours and social skills to promote a healthy lifestyle and reduce the likelihood of them abusing substances. Focusing in particular on:
- Building your child’s resilience
- Establishing good communication
- Monitoring your child’s behaviour
- Healthy relationships
- Knowing the facts on alcohol and other drugs
II. Helping you ensure your child is connected to SCHOOL
III. Helping you ensure your child is connected to your COMMUNITY
This new resource will soon be featured on the Effective Practice section of the Prevention Hub. We hope this resource will be beneficial to parents and others working with young people.
We’d love to hear from you! If you know of any new resources, research or materials that you think we should be aware of and/or should be included in this resource please contact us at info [at] preventionhub [dot] org
