Sharing her heart breaking story about childhood drug use can be eye opening. Not only will the parents and facilitators be engaged by this drug prevention presentation, the children will be as well. That will help drive home the drug prevention message to your children and teens.

So many need help parenting with such a diverse set of problems facing today’s teens. Having a middle school drug prevention program can be a supplement to parenting success. Ginger wants to spread her message of the harmful effects on a teens life.

Watching a young life destroyed by substance use and substance abuse is a horrible thing. There are too many stories about drug use in this country today. Drug awareness speakers can help children make the right decisions to stay drug-free.

Do not become tolerant of drugs in you child’s life. Do not allow your teen from using drugs. Drug effects on a child and drug effects on a teenager will change their life. Do not allow the effects of drugs on teens to determine their lives for them.
