HOW TO DRUG PROOF YOUR KIDS
An education, prevention and intervention programme developed by “Focus on the Family”, Australia and adapted for use in New Zealand since 2004. It is motivated by the increasing drug problem amoung young people and the frustrated attempts by parents to steer their children away from the harmful use of drugs. The programme runs for four 2hr sessions over 4 weeks, on Wednesday nights beginning 9th March at the Dargaville Intermediate School. The course is for parents and caregivers of children aged 8yrs to teens. Through this you will learn how to be more effective at influencing your children’s choices in relation to drug use. The cost is $20.00 per person and $30 per couple. This cost covers the purchase of an excellent parent manual which you will keep for future reference. If interested call into the school office to collect a brochure containing more information, or phone Bev Hopkins 439 7433 evenings.
