How Young is Too Young to Talk About Drugs?

The truth is, it's never too young to start preparing children with the skills and knowledge to face difficult situations. Our Back2Basics program works with elementary aged children to build just that, by focusing on resilience skills with out the use of drug language.

Resilience skills are the abilities that allow individuals to adapt, recover, and cope with stress, adversity, and difficult life situations. These skills can help individuals bounce back from challenges and setbacks, maintain a positive outlook, and continue to move forward in the face of adversity. Some common resilience skills include:

  1. Positive thinking and optimism: The ability to maintain a positive outlook, even in the face of challenging situations.

  2. Emotional regulation: The ability to manage emotions and cope with stress in a healthy way.

  3. Flexibility and adaptability: The ability to adjust to changing situations and circumstances.

  4. Social support: The ability to seek and receive support from others, such as family, friends, or a community.

  5. Problem-solving and decision-making: The ability to identify and assess problems, and develop and implement effective solutions.

  6. Self-care: The ability to take care of one's physical and mental health, such as through exercise, proper nutrition, and rest.

  7. Perseverance and persistence: The ability to stay committed to goals and tasks, even in the face of obstacles and setbacks.

Developing resilience skills can help individuals manage stress and cope with difficult situations more effectively. These skills can be developed through practice and training, and can be strengthened over time.
