Page 6 Help Your Children Say No To Drugs (NAPS)--Your children's abili- ty to say no to alcohol, tobacco and other drugs often depends on their ability to say no to their friends. Here are some ways you can help your children resist peer pressure: • Talk to them about the dan- gers and problems of alcohol, tobac- co and other drug use. Discuss situ- ations they may face, such as riding with someone who's been drinking, being offered a drink, or accepting a free tobacco sample. • Help them feel good about themselves. Give lots of praise and encouragement. Older chil- dren are often unsure of them- selves. Show you have confidence in them and believe they can be trusted to do the right things. • Help your children develop strong values. A clear sense of right and wrong can give your chil- dren the courage to make decisions based on facts and sound values rather than on peer pressure. • Learn to really listen. Talking to your children is only half the job. Know when to listen and not talk. • Have clear family rules against alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use. Tell your children they are not allowed to drink, smoke or use other drugs. Be sure they thoroughly understand the conse- quences of breaking these rules. Enforce the rules consistently. • Help your children practice saying no to their friends without making themselves look bad. Talk about how to turn down a ride from a friend who has been drink- ing or using other drugs or how to get out of an invitation to an Stavenhagen Video 220 Kearney 874-5081 The Clarenlmn :eWS unsupervised party. • Talk with other parents. If your children are going to a party or out with friends, make sure there will be a chaperone and no alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs will be allowed. • Tell them that very few children their age use alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. No matter what their friends think, the truth is most chil- dren do not use drugs or drink alcohol.

They are among the products that can be made from recycled scrap plastic containers. With landfill space quickly dis- appearing, interest in recycling plastics has become widespread. More and more plastic bottles and 208 S.

But the presence of a code or the fact that a plastic container has been col- lected for recycling does not guar- antee that the product actually will be recycled. Recycling occurs only when a product is manufactured using recycled material and is sold in the marketplace. If the public creates demand for these products, plastic and all other types of recycling will increase. A new hill-color booklet explains the plastics recycling loop from collection through final use. It describes the container coding system, gives examples of prod- ucts made from different types, and includes a glossary common plastics recycling For a free copy of Recycli Plastics," send a stamped, addressed business-size to: Institute of Scrap Rec Industries, Dept.
