let’s talk about…

Many parents and caregivers worry that talking to their children about high-risk behavior will introduce them to new ideas or damage their innocence. More and more young people are introduced to risky things at earlier ages. Do you want them to find out about them via the internet or a friend at school? Be the one who informs and empowers kids to protect their growing brain!
