Start Talking! Tips
for Schools Now Available
Children spend more than half their weekdays in school. Start Talking!
and the Drug Free Action Alliance recognize teachers are powerful
influencers in their students' lives and have an incredible opportunity
to guide them toward making healthy, drug-free lifestyle choices.
When it comes to preventing children from drinking, smoking or using
drugs, parents are a child's first line of defense and our teachers are
right there with them. What educators share in the classroom can
positively impact a child's decision to not use alcohol, tobacco,
marijuana or other drugs. Teachers are invited to sign-up and receive
"Teachable Moment" tips as well as other educational resources and
materials to share the drug and alcohol free message to students.
Start Talking! recently created an infographic that suggests additional
strategies to help get teachers and school staff involved in the effort
and to share the messages with students and their families.
