In case you missed it, there was a story during the March 21st CBS Evening News discussing cough medicine abuse. The piece made a point about how teens access information on the Internet about cough medicine abuse. The Internet can be a powerful and helpful tool to find all kinds of information. It is the primary way that we here at Five Moms are working to spread the word about cough medicine abuse. But we need to keep an eye on what our kids are reading and watching. Talk with your children about what they look at online. Make it a positive conversation to show your interest in what they have found. It will help you praise them for what they are doing right.
