Keeping Kids Off Drugs & Alcohol- It’s Easier Than You Think!

June 21, 2016 | Posted in Challenges, Family, General, Kids, Moms, Parenting, Relationships | By

Drugs and alcohol are killing our kids. The problem is everywhere, no matter where you look.

WE CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!

Please, I beg you to take action BEFORE you need to because:

PREVENTION IS EASIER THAN INTERVENTION!!!

Here are some additional tips to prevent your kids from trying drugs and alcohol that are not in today’s video:

1 Know your kids friends… it’s your best leverage.
2 Know where your kids are and check in on them.
3 Be sure adults are supervising when they are at friends houses.
4 Don’t keep drugs or alcohol in your home.
5 Don’t create a home environment that your kid needs to “escape” from.
6 Don’t ignore problems! Intervene immediately if your child try’s drugs or alcohol. Do not “excuse” bad behavior!
7 Talk to your kids! Many TV shows portray teenagers drinking, drugging, and having sex constantly and they may think this is “normal.”
8 Create a moral foundation. Your moral foundation doesn’t have to be religious, but let your kids know what your values and expectations are for your family.
9 Keep it real. Volunteer at a place that will allow them to see the damaging effects of drugs and alcohol. Not only will it help them learn compassion, it may serve as a warning of what not to do.
10 Have a really quality relationship with your child so they know it is safe to be honest with you.

Watch today’s short video and learn one of the most important things you can do to prevent your kids from trying drugs and alcohol!

1 Easy Tip To Stop Kids From Seeing You As The Bad Guy!

June 14, 2016 | Posted in Challenges, Communication, Family, General, Kids, Moms, Parenting, Relationships, Videos | By

Once when my daughter Madison was an angsty teenager, she said to me “You NEVER let me do anything!” 

This ridiculous statement came after she spent an entire weekend with her friends, hanging out at the local apple festival, and having a sleepover! AND, I made homemade pizza, and cookies for the sleepover!!! 

REALLY? I NEVER let you do anything??? 

Kids tend to globalize everything and it’s important that we help them see the true reality of things because otherwise they will begin to see the world as they describe it. 

YOU will become the enemy because they “ALWAYS” see you as the bad guy. 

Today’s video offers a quick tip to save your relationship from your child’s crazy, hormonal, teenage brain!

Hang in there!
