Discussing Fentanyl on News 12's "The New Normal"
I had the pleasure of joining Elizabeth Hashagen and Kevin Craig from Porzio Compliance Services for a great discussion about fentanyl overdoses and ways in which parents can become more proactive in addressing the dangers with their kids.
Talk with your kids about drugs and alcohol early and often. Be honest and clear about the potential consequences.
Teach your kids to talk about their mental health - ask how they are feeling and keep an eye out for anxiety and depression.
Watch for tell-tale signs and symptoms of substance use - social withdrawal, shift in friend groups, changes in financial status.
Keep tabs on your kids - they don't have a "right to privacy" when their lives are at stake.
Lead with compassion, but be clear about the consequences when your kids break household rules.
