Encourage Healthy Coping Skills

Parents share with your kids that using alcohol or misusing prescription drugs or marijuana to ease anxiety/stress is unhealthy.  Parents, kids think you breeze through your day. Share a mistake or unexpected situation and how you dealt with it. This can be a powerful lesson. 
Encourage: 
* Healthy eating habits
* Exercise, yoga and meditation
* Talking to a friend, a trusted adult, or a counselor
