Family Day - Making Everyday Special

Family Day – Making Everyday Special

Whether driving the kids to soccer practice, enjoying family dinner, or tucking little
ones into bed, it’s important to remember that those everyday activities have a lasting
effect on your children. Each of these moments offers an opportunity to connect,
share and really listen to what’s on their mind.

As children age, it is vital to keep those lines of communication open, especially as
they start feeling increased pressure to start engaging in risky behavior including
smoking, drinking or using other drugs. Adolescence is the critical period for the
initiation of risky drug use and its consequences. Nine out of 10 Americans who meet
the medical criteria for addiction started smoking, drinking, or using other drugs
before age 18. Preventing or delaying teens from using nicotine, alcohol, or other
drugs for as long as possible is crucial to their health and safety.

Founded in 2001 by Center on Addiction, Family Day works with organizations across
the country to educate parents about how everyday activities, like sharing a meal,
playing a game, or asking about their day, can make a difference in the life of a child.
Each year Family Day is celebrated on the fourth Monday of September. To learn
