The Mother's Checklist of Drug Prevention
Lessons in Drug Prevention: Handbook Two
All The Little Things We Say and Do

About The Book: 170 Pages   View Table of Contents
Most parents are terrified by the idea of talking to their young children about drugs and alcohol. That fear
causes many to wait far too long to start the discussion.  Now, there is a solution to the problem: The Mother’s
Checklist of Drug Prevention.

You can stop worrying right now—you don’t have to talk to your six-year-old about heroin. In fact, most of this
book has nothing at all to do with talking about drugs. Instead, it highlights all the little things we say and do
when our children are young that can reduce stress and make them less likely as they get older to reach for
drugs and alcohol to feel better.

The Mother’s Checklist is an exciting follow-up to Jonathan and Kelly’s first handbook, Not All Kids Do Drugs, in
which they gave parents the tools to help keep their kids safe and healthy in a world full of drugs. In The Mother’
s Checklist, they provide a detailed guide parents can use to forge patterns of language and behavior that will
help them raise happy, self-confident children who can grow into functional, accomplished, drug-free young

The concept for this book was created by a mother, but it is not just for mothers. Dads, grandparents, nannies,
babysitters, counselors, teachers—anyone who cares for or about children—will benefit from the wisdom
found in this handbook and checklist.

In addition to the checklist, most sections include these recurring elements:
  • Keep in Mind, which highlights major issues to be discussed;
  • The Words We Use, which talks about and give examples of the language used when speaking with
  • Establish a Pattern, which suggests ways to practice and repeat the important ideas without becoming
    incredibly boring and one dimensional;
  • Lessons Learned, which quickly recaps what was just covered; and
  • Links, which guides you to additional content on the Internet. All references are cited so you can
    investigate these topics in more detail on your own.

In the section Everything I Ever Learned About Parenting I Learned at Disneyland, Jonathan and Kelly take a
tongue in cheek look at practical ways to incorporate into our daily lives all the little things we can say and do to
reduce stress, frustration, anger, and anxiety; and subsequently lessen the likelihood our children will be
victims of substance abuse.

Not All Kids Do Drugs
Lessons in Drug Prevention: Handbook One
Proactive Parenting Techniques

Second Edition - includes a new section "Some Kids Are Going To
Use Drugs" What to do when your child gets in trouble.  

About Not All Kids Do Drugs: 129 pages View Table of Contents
How can parents keep their kids safe and healthy when it comes to drug and alcohol
abuse? “Not All Kids Do Drugs” is a hands-on, accessible, step-by-step guide that tells
parents exactly how to get the job done. Part one deals with the issues surrounding teen
use: Does it have to happen? Can you teach teens how to drink moderately and safely?
Can we learn anything from how Europeans drink? What do parents need to know about
school-based drug education?

Part two is the heart of the book. It provides direct ideas about how to create the safest
world for your children; one that has the lowest risk of damage and danger caused by drugs
and alcohol. In part two, you’ll find “The Big Three” things you can do to lower the risk of
drug and alcohol use by your children, as well as information about the most effective
actions to take when it comes to teen parties, curfews, media, non-use policies, peer
pressure, consequences of use, communication and goal setting. This section will even tell
you what to say to your kids if you have ever used drugs at an earlier point in your life.
These hands-on actions are easy to learn and will directly influence the environment your
children grow up in.

Part three tells the authors’ stories, and explores the nature of drug use, addiction, and the
unforeseen consequences of drug and alcohol use that begins in the teen years. The
authors have spent 15 years refining their knowledge of drugs and alcohol, and they strive
daily to simplify this complex subject into understandable terms that can make this
knowledge applicable in everyday life. They believe drug education is not just about drugs;
it’s also about communication, life skills, and relationships. They see drugs not as the
problem, but as a symptom of bigger problems that aren’t being dealt with in an effective
way. This book is intended to help families make healthy and informed choices, and thereby
reduce the likelihood drugs and alcohol will play a negative role in their lives.
