Explaining to kids about drugs is important. It is better for them to be educated about drugs by adults than it is for them to learn about drugs from other people their own range rage. We can only educate them by telling them how and why drugs are bad. Teenagers usually do listen to parents about drugs even though we may think that they don’t listen to us.

We need to explain to them the different types of illegal drugs and also explain how illegal drugs are bad for our health.
