Equipping Families 
Red Ribbon Week
Engaging Boredom

Boredom is a problem- especially during social distancing and virtual schooling. Kids who are engaged, connected, involved, and busy have fewer opportunities to engage in risky behaviors. Research has proven that bored kids are more likely to use substances. In our temporary reality and in light of Red Ribbon Week, we think it’s important to take a look at how boredom is impacting our kids.

Learn about what that looks like in this video and downloadable worksheet.

Announcing our new content partnership with Natural High

Natural High is a drug prevention nonprofit that inspires and empowers youth to find their natural high and develop the skills and courage to live life well. Their award-winning, research-based curriculum consists of high-quality films of public figures like Bethany Hamilton, Tony Hawk, Kelly Slater, and Rob Machado sharing their stories of finding healthy alternatives to substance use. They also make everything free to teachers and parents, with the goal for every student in school and at home to have thoughtful discussions about substance use. Learn more about them, and access their Red Ribbon Week 2020 content playlist this week.
