Be honest with kids. They know when you’re stretching the truth.
Get to know the friends of your kids. Learn their names. Find out what their interests are.
Talk about why kids should not use alcohol, smoke, or use drugs.
Attend a youth sports game, concert, or other youth activity. Cheer on the kids that you know.
Learn the names of the kids in your neighborhood. Say hi to them when you see them.
Tell a young person about a subject (or topic) that gets you excited. Explain why it matters to you.
Stay home as a family. Do something fun together, such as play a board game or a card game.
Stand up for young people who don’t have the same rights (or access) as other kids.
Become the parent you’ve always wanted to be.
Volunteer with a young person in a way that matters. Plant bulbs in the fall. Bake cookies for someone who is sick.
