Today parents are having a hard time talking with their kids. They are facing many situations which keep their child’s attention. These include cell phones, video movies and games, school clubs, organizations and activities and many more.
Furthermore, a new challenge of an old problem is crashing in on the teens attention. Drug Use! This situation is finally getting the attention of the public. Drug addiction has become an epidemic in every community, large and small, and in most homes and family life. Many people, young and old, are overdosing on terrible and dangerous substances and are dying from using such drugs as meth and the Opioids. Many of them are dying from first time use.
Parents need to begin an ongoing discussion within their home environments stressing the need to choose to live drug free lifestyles. They must become familiar with what to say and do about recreational drug use. They must have an open discussion setting guidelines, rules, action plans, and approved activities with each of their children. Young children must be included these important discussions.
For more than 36 years I have been on a one-man crusade to warn parents about issues causing the destruction of the traditional family life style. From these experiences and attending many training seminars, classes and other educational experiences has had profound impact on my own life-style.
I have been in on treatment sessions with recovering drug addicts. I have witnessed the suffering of their everyday life-styles. The impact that has really touched my heart has been reading thousands of letters of many moms of addict’s. I have shed many tears from these great ladies when they announce the death of their addicted child.
Over the years I have developed an action plan for parents to use to discuss this and other family oriented topics with their families. I call this program “Life’s Legacy Pathway” Family Talking System. I wrote and developed this from the experiences and training I have received along the way. I learned how to create and developed my website “https://www.kidsagainstdrugs.com/ to tell my story and about the program.
The first module in the program is “How to Talk with Your Kids about Drug Prevention. It is a script for family meetings and discussions. Research resources on discussion topics are included for special report activities. I’ve also included several suggested activities the family can do to reinforce what you are learning. This system helps moms and dads know what and how to say it in a friendly way. Kids love family meetings. The program is designed for the whole family.
I believe family organizations are the most important organization a society can have. I have experienced the heart aches of a broken family myself. This situation never leaves my thoughts. I have learned many valuable lessons which lead my desire to warn others about the dangers todays “what’s in it for me lifestyles” are causing to families everywhere. Take-a-look at what I have put together. The system works. You’ll find it at “https://www.kidagainstdrugs.com/“
