    For Parents

    Our kids are growing up in a very different world from the one you use to know.  Different expectations, stronger pressures and temptations, more choices, bigger choices, and greater dangers. And when the pace of change is so fast even the kids have trouble keeping up, what hope is there for parents? No matter how much you try to stay up to speed with what your kids are doing, there will always be plenty you don't know.

    The Partnership at Drugfree.org is here to help parents prevent, intervene in, and find treatment for drug and alcohol use by their children.  So even if you don't always know exactly where your children are, at least you'll always know where they're at. Visit www.drugfree.com anytime for more information.

    For questions or concerns, please contact your child's school counselor.
