This week’s Talk Time has a Living and Learning focus:
I can talk about how to be safe near drugs (over-the-counter medicines and prescription drugs, for example).
A good starting point for your discussions could be to identify the drugs you’re aware of that have the potential to be helpful. Then, you could discuss a range of scenarios, establishing what being safe around drugs does and does not look like.
The following R2s will help you to stay safe around drugs:
- Only take drugs as detailed by your doctor and/or in the instructions (if an over-the-counter medicine).
- Do not take drugs that are prescribed for someone else.
- If you’re not sure what the drug is or how much you can have, don’t take it.
- If you need any medicine or have any related questions, ask a trusted adult.
