Parents have role to play in D.A.R.E. education

I WAS pleased to read Supt Paul Winters’ column in Chad. Anti-Social behaviour is a scourge in our society today.

This, he says, is caused by just a few but it brings a bad name to schools and the locality where they live in. The majority of children are law-abiding and well behaved.

The D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) programme is taught in schools to show how children can combat drugs, alcohol, smoking, bullying and anti-social behaviour.

I hope parents would guide their children, too, in D.A.R.E. teaching. This can play a part in helping them to grow up into responsible adults and to respect the law and authority.

Parents can find out more about D.A.R.E by visiting http://www.lifeskills.co.uk/
