June is Positive Parenting Month
Introducing “The Mom’s Toolkit”
The Mom’s Toolkit equips parents with the tools that will help them promote a peaceful home by building character in their children using discipline, chores, and most importantly, love. The toolkit is designed for parents with children ages three through teens. The book is available at www.amazon.com and the accompanying website can be found at www.themomstoolkit.com.
Suggestions for helping keep teens from alcohol and other drug involvement:
*Know your child’s friends and their parents.
*Insist on knowing where your child will be.
*Make reliable arrangements to have someone live in your home while you are away.
*Confirm “overnight” plans with the other parents.
*Challenge last minute changes in plans.
*Know what your child keeps in his/her room. It is your home.
*Set a definite curfew for your home.
*Observe city and county curfew laws. Know the laws.
*Know the signs and symptoms of substance use/abuse.
*Call for help if you have any questions.
