casaCelebrate Family Day on Monday, September 22, 2014!

Parents who eat dinner with their kids on a regular basis and engage them in conversation can prevent their kids from becoming involved in underage alcohol, tobacco & other drug use and other risky behaviors! 


Even talking with your kids while driving to and from school; gymnastics / baseball practice; the mall; or even the grocery store can help parents get to know their kid’s interests, concerns, thoughts, and feelings to better connect with them. And observing “Family Day” on Monday, September 22, 2013 can also provide parents with such an opportunity. After all, research shows that parents who are involved in their kids’ lives can influence the decisions their kids make. So, connect with your kids on Family Day! Follow the discussion on GFP’s Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages.
