Event description

Description

The 15 Minute Child Break informs, encourages and empowers parents, grandparents and other adult caregivers about how to communicate effectively with children about the misuse and abuse of alcohol and other drugs. The presentation includes up-to-date statistics on drug and alcohol use and public service announcements that cover various types of drugs used by children.

Studies have shown that parents who talk to their children about their activities an average of 15 minutes per day have children who are 67% less likely to try marijuana.

The following topics are covered in the presentation:

  • Underage Drinking
  • Marijuana Use
  • Abuse of Prescription & OTC Medications
  • Influence of Media and Pop Culture
  • Effects of Specific Drugs
  • Identifying Risk & Protective Factors
  • Strengthening Parenting & Communication Skills
  • Utilizing Teachable Moments

The Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey was created as a substance abuse prevention alliance to localize, strengthen and deepen initiatives, drug-free assistance and parent education.

We encourage you to come out and learn steps to take to prevent substance abuse in the home.
