Parents learn importance of talking with kids about drugs, alcohol

ATLANTIC CITY -

Parents met in Atlantic City Wednesday night for a free program educating them on how to talk to their kids about drug and alcohol use.

The Partnership for a Drug Free New Jersey presented it's "15 Minute Child Break" program.  The program, put on in part by the Atlantic County Sheriff's Office, asks parents to take 15 minutes a day to talk to their kids about drug and alcohol abuse.  According to organizers, statistics show that a simple 15 minute talk greatly reduces a child's chances of trying marijuana.

Those who help put on the program say the reason for doing so is simple.

"For some reasons parents seem to overlook what's going on right underneath themselves in their own home, and so we try to make them aware of what's out there," said Kyran Killian, a parent educator for the Partnership for a Drug Free New Jersey.
