How can you avoid substance abuse
How do I protect my child from drugs?
It is almost inevitable that children will come into contact with drugs. Nobody will be able to monitor their child 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. And that's a good thing, because “overprotection” often has the opposite effect of what parents think: the children feel constricted, rebel and do exactly what the parents wanted to protect them from. Other children, on the other hand, seek refuge in the world of drugs.
As parents, all you can do is give your children a few protective mechanisms along the way, in the hope that these will be heeded by the adolescents. However, there will never be a guarantee that your child will not use drugs anyway.
This is why experts advise that young people should also be informed about safer use rules so that they know how to behave after they have resorted to drugs. According to this, drugs should not be mixed, for example, and if only consumed in small doses and with clean accessories. The aim of these measures is less to avoid drug use than to minimize risk.
You can do that:
- Provide factual information about drugs to satisfy curiosity
- offer activities that are more fun than drugs => active leisure time
- convey joy in life
- raise your children to be independent and strengthen their self-confidence
- support children in coping with problematic situations
- support them in dealing with fear, worries, problems and peer pressure
Talk to your pediatrician if you have any questions about how you can specifically support your child.
