If you have kids of school age, you know that the countdown to summer vacation already has begun. Your children may be getting more and more excited about getting out of class and into summer activities. Take a moment this week and try to tap into that excitement with your children. It is a perfect opportunity to connect with your kids about something they are looking forward to. When you are comfortable talking with your kids, you also can approach other topics that matter to you. It is a great way to start a conversation about the dangers of drug abuse. For more tips on conversing with your kids, you should check out Time to Talk, which has a Parent Talk Kit full of resources.
