Stephanie lives in a small city in Canada and attends her local high school where she gets decent grades. She likes spending time with her circle of friends but also gets along pretty well with her parents and little brother. She tends to go with the flow and values other people's opinions and actions, but likes to feel like she's true to herself -- she doesn't want to get lost in someone else's image of her. Some of Stephanie's friends have tried weed and she hasn't judged them; but drugs are just not her thing.
Bike Ride with Dad
Dad and I talked a bit on our bike ride tonight about Jenn’s class presentation about drugs—I could tell he was pretty surprised that I knew so much about drugs and how they can affect your life, like your relationships with friends, school work and family and that I would never let something like drugs take over my life. Then I picked up the pace and beat him on the sprint home! YEAH! :-D
BTW, my presentation about how a positive self-image contributes to your overall energy went well. I totally rocked the podium!
DYKYou may be surprised by the support your parents or guardians can give you. After all, they want you to be able to make healthy choices.
DYKFeelings of confidence can help you rise above pressures to experiment with drugs—think about your strengths and stay true to you!
