But where does she begin? Listening to Mom's thoughts, we catch a glimpse of the sometimes difficult and awkward process most parents go through when trying to initiate a conversation about drinking. Mom finally seizes the moment to talk with Luci on the stairs of their home and advises her to say "no thanks, not my thing" if a friend ever offers her alcohol. Although it seems as if Luci is not listening, like most children, she really does hear what Mom is saying.

The media is rife with images that promote smoking and drinking as "cool," fun, and a natural part of life. That's why, more than ever, parents need to talk to their kids about the perils of drugs and help them separate fact from fiction. But how do you get started? According to experts, it's best to develop an ongoing dialogue with your child -- starting in the preschool years if possible -- and to look for spontaneous, everyday situations, or "teachable moments," in which to lay the groundwork for open, honest communication. The best news? Research shows that children who hear the facts about drugs and alcohol from their parents are significantly less likely to use them. Here's how to begin."

Mindfulness occurs when we pay attention to what is happening in the here and now. We observe our emotions, our thoughts, our surroundings, in an even-minded, nonjudgmental way. We apply this same focus of attention to situations both good and bad. This is being mindful. Learning to be mindful of what’s happening in the moment helps children make sound decisions rather than be ruled by their emotions. Negative emotions can be tough for anyone to deal with. Fear and anger can hit us unexpectedly and when we do not have a prior plan for dealing with these feelings, we can be thrown off balance and react badly."

If you began having regular conversations with your child at a young age, the child should know by now – without a doubt – where you stand on the subject of drugs and alcohol. If you didn’t have those conversations earlier, it’s not too late to start! In fact, this is the time when you should spend even more time talking and listening, as your child is likely seeing more substance use on television, in movies, and online – and at school or in social situations. Children this age are capable of engaging in more in-depth conversations about why people use drugs, the potential dangers (such as addiction or fatal overdose), and the consequences for the user and his family."

Alcohol can cause serious physical damage, from hangovers to death from alcohol poisoning. It is estimated that 5,000 people under age 21 die every year from alcohol-related injuries from traffic fatalities, suicides and homicides. Underage drinking increases risky sexual behavior, including unwanted, unintended, and unprotected sexual activity. Such behavior increases the risk for unplanned pregnancy and for contracting sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including infection with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Finally alcohol can damage the developing teenage brain." Visit the web site
