“These days we are facing an epidemic of drug abuse scenario and the most adequate preventative measure that parents can take is clear and non-judgmental communication. Parents need to be involved in the life of their child – a parent is not supposed to be a friend to a child but should maintain a friendly and approachable attitude. They should respect the individuality of the child but also be part of all spheres of his life. Parents should educate children about mental health – understanding emotions, why they feel what they feel, need to acknowledge their emotions rather than saying “don’t think about it, it may seem trivial to parent or child, it may not ‘be,’ he said
Dr Yasir said schools are a child’s second home – teachers can be a great source of support and reinforcement for the child. Schools should adopt a drug-free policy where such behavior should not be accepted. Appropriate awareness campaigns should be planned at school and life skills should also be imparted. Life skills prepare a child to deal with various life situations, which indirectly teaches him to make rational decisions and also keeps him away from substance use.
“The ease of access to drugs in our valley is also leading to an increase in drug addiction. Our society as a whole can play a major role. Government organizations must be actively involved and religious leaders can use their sermons as a platform for awareness “, he added. said.
