Practical Principle: Parent Involvement in Schooling
Parent(s) are actively involved in helping young person succeed in school.
- Become your child’s temporary teacher. You can use the internet to access many evidence-based curriculums like Project ALERT and help your child understand the impacts of substance use, abuse, and addiction.
