ly meetings to check in with your child's

activities, encourage them to share their experiences and help them

For more helpful tips and tools to help get the conversation started with your middle-schooler this September, visit TimeToTalk.org.

It is never too early to start having open conversations with children about the dangers and consequences of drug and alcohol use. In fact, a child's entry into middle school marks a critical juncture -- a time when parents need to be aware of their child's new surroundings and the pressures that come with exposure to new peers and social situations. TimeToTalk.org features tips specifically designed to help parents get the conversation started with children entering middle school.

"You may think your son or daughter is still too young, but middle school marks one of the most significant transitions in children's lives and the first time they may be exposed to alcohol, inhalants and drug abuse in a meaningful way," said Steve Pasierb, president and CEO of the Partnership.

We want to help parents understand they are one of the most influential voices in the lives of their children. Time To Talk is the place where we will continue to provide easy tips, conversation starters and the personal connections parents say they need."
