Family Day

CASAColumbia® Family Day was launched in 2001 by CASAColumbia.Family Day is a national movement to celebrate parental engagement as an effective tool to help keep America’s kids substance free. I love their STAR acronym;

SSpend time with my kids

TTalk to them about their friends, interests and the dangers of nicotine, alcohol, and other drugs

AAnswer their questions and listen to what they say

RRecognize that I have the power to help keep my kids substance free!

I don’t know anything about their materials but it seems to me that pledging to be a STAR is a remarkable commitment even if your kids are 6 months old  or in their 40’s. We never stop being parents.
