St. George, UT, April 27, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- According to a study released by Nida, Monitoring the Future, the amount of teens using alcohol and smoking cigarettes has declined, while the amount of teens abusing prescription drugs and smoking marijuana has increased in the last five years.
As these numbers continue to rise parents play a critical role in preventing their teens from using drugs. The five suggestions for preventing teen substance abuse include; build self-esteem, set aside family time, create an open book policy, get your teen involved, and know your teen’s friends.
Parents who have a teen who is struggling with substance abuse or other behavioral problems may be at loss for what to do. Problem with Teens encourages parents to get educated and become proactive in their teen’s life. Talking to a teen about drugs consistently is great tool for prevention. Initiating the conversation about drugs will let them know you are approachable.
