Talking to Children and Teens about Drugs The world can present plenty of dangers for young people, and one particularly prevalent issue to be concerned about is the abuse of illicit substances. This can include alcohol, illicit drugs, and even prescription drugs. The first step in keeping children and teenagers safe from substance abuse is to talk about the dangers and risks; open communication is crucial. Parents also need to set a positive example where drugs and alcohol are concerned.
