Children have many role models – parents, teachers, friends, movie and sports stars, to name a few. Much of a child’s beliefs is formed by what he is first taught at home and then tested against other role models later. As a parent, you
play an important role in engaging and guiding your child to lead drug-free and healthy lifestyles. It is important for parents to know about drugs and inhalants and its harmful consequences, so that you can talk to your child and guide your child
to stay away from drugs and inhalants.
This Handbook aims to empower you with the relevant preventive drug education knowledge, to identify tell-tale signs of drug abuse and some parenting tips to engage your child in conversations on drug abuse. Never assume that your child should have
known better. Engage them early before they start experimenting with drugs.
Be the Anti-Drug Champion in your home. Let us work together to guide our children to embrace a drug-free lifestyle.
