Misguided Intentions in Drug-Abuse Prevention.
Katz, Lilian G.
Young Children, v49 n3 p2-3 Mar 1994
Many drug abuse prevention programs and materials, such as the "Smart Choices" newsletter for kindergartners, are developmentally inappropriate for young children. Successful preventive measures need to address the mixed messages that society itself gives to children about alcohol and other drugs and present developmentally appropriate instruction that goes beyond cartoon strips and pamphlets.
