Kids don’t come with an instruction manual, but they do come with a host of challenges through which we need to help them to navigate. What we say or do, our decisions, matter. Really. Even when it seems like they aren’t listening, kids are paying attention. And you can Be the Influence. Yes, you. We all have questions, and it isn’t easy, but together we can answer them. How do we keep our kids safe and healthy? How do we talk to them about our concerns and expectations when it comes to drugs and alcohol? How can I get involved with others in the community? Where can I get support? Let us provide you with the right information and resources.
