Thanksgiving is just a week away, and I think about how thankful I am this year to have a daughter who is healthy and safe. One of the reasons I can say that is because I have committed to talking with her about the different dangers she may face, including cough medicine abuse. I am thankful that I have found some great resources for educating myself about cough medicine abuse and a community of like-minded parents dedicated to keeping kids free from drug abuse. To make sure you continue to be thankful this holiday season, make sure to talk with other parents and educate yourself about substances of abuse, including medicines. It will help keep the season a joyous one.
