What are your favorite things to do on the 4th of July? With all of the planned (and unplanned) activities that go on during the holiday, it seems like sometimes there's just too many activities to choose from! Have any great stories of good times with your family or tips that you'd like to share with us? Go to our Gather community and tell us all about them.
There's no better cure for stress than some summer fun with the family. Spending this time with your kids is a great way to become more comfortable talking with them about the things going on in their lives. It keeps the lines of communication open and helps make the "serious" conversations, like those dealing with drug abuse issues like cough medicine abuse, easier. So have some fun; enjoy the weather; and, most importantly, make sure you stay safe.
