Helping Your Pre-Teen Say "No": A Parent's Aid.
National Clearinghouse for Alcohol Information (DHHS), Rockville, MD.; National Inst. on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (DHHS), Rockville, MD.
This brochure is one of two publications designed to assist parents in guiding their preadolescents away from experimentation with alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs, while enhancing the parent-child relationship. It contains a broad overview of prevention. The book is divided into 10 sections. Each section provides suggestions and answers to a question about substance abuse prevention for preadolescents. The 10 questions discussed in the book concern: (1) learning what to say to a child about alcohol; (2) encouraging children to turn to their parents for guidance; (3) enhancing the child's self-esteem and helping him say "no" to alcohol and other drugs; (4) teaching values at home to help children resist peer pressure to use alcohol; (5) serving as a role model; (6) using peer pressure skills; (7) making family policies concerning alcohol experimentation; (8) preventing alcohol experimentation; (9) joining with other parents to fight preadolescent drug experimentation; and (10) being prepared to help children who, in spite of parental efforts, may drink anyway. Signs of alcohol abuse are listed and sources of help are suggested. (NB)
