Part 1: Learn How to Teach Drug Education to Your Child

  • Step 1

    The first step is to learn how to teach your child about drug education and also learn to recognize signs of substance use with your child.

  • Step 2

    Choose an article that you feel applies to what you want to achieve.

  • Step 3

    Do the “Test your Knowledge” at the bottom of the article. When you feel you own the data, then go to step 4. If not, go back to the article and see if there is a word or an expression you did not understand. There are terms that we do not use often, so it is important to make sure you understand them.

  • Step 4

    Choose another article you feel will make you more knowledgeable and comfortable talking to your kid about.

    Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you are confident you can talk to your kids about drugs and alcohol.

Part 2: Teach Your Child About Drug Education

  • Step 1

    Tell your child of what you are going to do. You can tell him that you want to show him cool videos about drugs, medication and alcohol and that these videos will help him in the future.

  • Step 2

    Put the video on.

    Important: Always watch the videos with your kid. There is a good chance they will be more focused if you are with them.

    Also keep an eye on their interest. If suddenly they seem disinterested, there is a good chance there is something they did not understand prior to when they started looking distracted.

  • Step 3

    Go below the video and go over the questions with your kid. If there is a question they answer wrong or could not answer, click on “Get Answer Here” and it will replay the section of the video with the answer.

    When they have a good understanding of the video, go to the next video and repeat steps 1 to 3.
