100 Tips for Parents Raising Drug-Free Kids

by Aletha Solter
£11.99   paperback  Da Capo Press (2006)

100 Tips for Parents Raising Drug-Free Kids by Aletha Solter In this book, a developmental psychologist gives parents tips for keeping children of all ages away from drugs and alcohol. In a country where an estimated 25 percent of teenagers use illegal substances on a monthly basis, parents are right to be concerned about setting their children on a drug-free course. While much advice handed out these days focuses on teen behaviour and what to do once drugs have become a problem in the home, "Raising Drug Free Kids" takes an innovative approach and focuses instead on preventative measures that can be developed early on in a child's life. Developmental psychologist and parent educator Aletha Solter provides parents with simple, easy-to-use tools to build a solid foundation for children to say "no" to drugs.Organized by age group, from preschool through young adulthood, the 100 handy tips will show parents how to help their children to: feel good about themselves without an artificial high; cope with stress so they won't turn to drugs to relax; respect their bodies so they will reject harmful substances; have close family connections so they won't feel desperate to belong to a group; and, take healthy risks (like outdoor adventures) so they won't need to take dangerous ones. Highly recommended!
