A 60 Second Conversation Starter

You Know Your Child Best

Some good news to share:

  • 89% of DHS & HPHS students have at least one adult in their lives (other than a parent) they can talk to (2018 Illinois Youth Survey)
  • More than 90% of District 113 parents agree there is great risk with underage drinking (2018 parent survey)

While most DHS & HPHS students choose to be alcohol-free, those who do drink or use drugs, say it helps them relax, feel better about themselves, or fit in. Parents and the adults in whom our kids confide can help them realize drinking is an unhealthy coping strategy by offering healthy alternatives.
With finals and grades around the corner, tune in to how your child is feeling and how you can help ease their anxiety: What’s worrying you at the moment? You know, I got very worried about a problem this week, maybe we could help each other out?

It’s not one 60-minute conversation.
