6 Steps to Protect Children from Drugs /6-steps-to-protect-children-from-drugs.html /6-steps-to-protect-children-from-drugs.html#comments Wed, 22 Feb 2012 13:48:48 +0000 qhiqy /?p=1612

Lately we have heard many cases of drug abuse or drug obataan befall young adults, even children. This is certainly a serious problem, considering the future of a nation is in your hands.

In this case, the role of parents had a big hand, especially in protecting their children from the threat of dangerous goods.Based on this, here are some tips to help parents protect their children from exposure to drugs, or even stop using it:

1. Addressing the problem quickly

If your child is caught using drugs, or even inside the suspicious yet, experts recommend that parents take action. Some people stop using drugs after their teenage years. But research showed that people who try drugs at a younger age, more likely to become addicted.

“If a teen has started smoking or drinking alcohol, which have a higher risk of becoming drug users than those who just started smoking and drinking after the age of 20 years,” said Roxanne Kibben, vice president of Phoenix House Foundation , a nonprofit organization based in the United States provide treatment services for drug abuse in 10 countries.

A national survey in 2010 found that 12.8 percent of those who first tried marijuana at age 14 years or younger are likely to become drug users. But those who tried marijuana at age 18 or older have less risk, which is 2.6 percent. .

2. Talk as soon as possible

The experts at Phoenix House Foundation recommends that parents talk with their children immediately before they have the opportunity to use drugs or alcohol. These efforts can be made long before the child enters school.

Meanwhile, Tammy Granger Caron Treatment Centers to advise parents to start talking about the dangers of drugs to children aged 8-10 years, to prevent entry of incorrect information from their peers.

“I think it’s important for children to get some specific information related to drugs,” said Granger.

3. Set clear limits

A national survey of drug use and health-related care in the United States in 2010 shows as much as 89.6 percent of adolescents aged 12-17 years reported that their parents objected to the use of marijuana, but only tried once or twice.

However, experts say, many parents feel free to start talking about drugs in detail if the child is not exposed.

“Therefore, it is clear what the rules are, and what would happen if they (the children) to break the rules. All parents seem to have the same rules about drugs,” said Kibben.

Jennifer Fan, center for substance abuse prevention in the United States, he said, parents should not only give advice in the form of words but real action to give an example.

4. Positive Thinking

The prevention of drug use do not always have to be in the form of warnings or punishment to children. Granger said that through the provision of motivation can also be a tool of protection for young people not to be involved in drug abuse. ”Instead of focusing on the negative, focus on the positive,” said Granger.

5. Build the emotional bond

Granger said that prevention of drug abuse should not always talk about the drug itself, but can be addressed other factors that trigger such as stress.

“We have a prevention program that is not always about drugs and alcohol. However, on the construction of staff resilience and determination,” said Granger.

Granger said that children with mental health problems or have difficulty managing emotions, have a higher risk of drug users and alcohol. Strengthen the family’s emotional support from the beginning to curb the problems associated with drug abuse in adolescents.

The experts at Columbia University found that children have the opportunity to dine with their families tend not to be involved in drug use or drinking. In their research, researchers associated with 1,000 adolescents and 452 parents, found that teens who eat dinner with the family the opportunity to at least three times a week, twice as likely to use snuff or marijuana.

6. Give examples of real cases

Experts recommend that parents do not be afraid or ashamed to give concrete examples of drug abuse-related cases. You can talk about the life of someone you know kids (neighbors), which is experiencing problems caused by drug use.

“It explains in neutral. Can say, when someone does this, then they are at risk,” said Kibben.

This is a warning for those who regularly consume drugs painkillers. Recent research indicates experts in Canada, the consumption of painkillers on a daily basis and in high doses may increase the risk of heart attack and stroke by 40 percent.

A small group of researchers from Hull York Medical School and the University of Toronto, Canada, has studied and compared the effects of the use of painkillers on the low and high doses (for a more severe complaints). Experimental drugs that are quite diverse, ranging from the type used in hospitals, prescription drugs, drug-common painkillers such as ibuprofen and naproxen found.

Results showed, using lower doses of diclofenac (to treat postoperative pain), berkaitkan with 22 percent higher risk of heart problems. Meanwhile, in larger doses, the ability of patients with heart disease or stroke increased by 98 percent.

On the other NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, the use of drugs in accordance with the recommendation no negative effect on patients. However, in people who consume large doses may increase cardiovascular risk by 78 percent.

“When choosing a type of the existing NSAIDs, patients and physicians should pay attention to the balance between benefit and harm that could be made in the use of these drugs,” said a principal investigator, Dr. Patricia McGettigan.

According to McGettigan, painkillers naproxen and ibuprofen are the safest for the heart, as long as it is used in low doses.

Meanwhile Doireann Maddock, a senior nurse at the British Heart Foundation heart said the use of painkillers is very risky, especially in people with cardiovascular disease.

“It has been known since the old and the new findings should not be forgotten. But scientists and drug experts need to dig deeper to reach conclusions about the effects of these drugs,” he said.

He added, “The use of any painkillers sure there are benefits and risks. If all these drugs and the repercussions, you must first consult with your doctor. Because of the benefits that can be much greater than the risk. ”
