The Misplaced Optimism in Legal Pot

“I think the reason the association is changing is that it’s not causal,” she says. “It would be wonderful if it was true that passing a medical-cannabis law could prevent deaths from opioid overdose, but the evidence doesn’t seem to support that.”

A new study throws cold water on hopes that more liberal cannabis policies could stem the opioid epidemic.

Can You Reshape Your Brain's Response To Pain?

"Repeated exposure to psychological trauma, or deep anxiety or depression — especially in childhood — can leave a physical imprint on the brain that can make some people more vulnerable to chronic pain, scientists say."

Changing how the mind reacts to pain can reduce the discomfort experienced, according to scientists who study brain pathways that regulate pain. A new type of therapy aims to enhance that effect.

It's National Prevention Week! Tuesday's focus is Underage Drinking and Alcohol Misuse.

PreventionWorks of Hillsdale County is working to reduce underage drinking by:

- educating teens through Youth Engaged in Prevention (YEP) in schools

- conducting TIPS (responsible server) education of alcohol vendors throughout Hillsdale County.

- using social media to share messages with teens and parents about underage drinking.

The great news: Alcohol use by teens is decreasing in Hillsdale County! Recent use has decreased by 10% since 2014. However, it's still the most used substance by teens in Hillsdale County - about 27% of teens say they've used alcohol in the past 30 days.

The best prevention tool available? PARENTS! Talk. They Hear You. Make your expectations known to your teen, and then be consistent in enforcing your expectations. If teens wait until age 21, their chance of addiction in adulthood drops significantly.

Having an Advancing Parenting bumper sticker on your car is so interesting! At stoplights you can watch drivers read the message and then desperately search for their phone so they can take a picture of it before the light turns green. This happens almost every time I drive my car! Presumably the photos are being shared on social media. If there’s a passenger or passengers someone will read it and comment, then everyone in the car reads it and conversations start up. It’s wonderful to see people discussing parenting! I’ve never seen motorists take pictures of bumper stickers before. It’s really a phenomenon! I think it’s because there’s a real need for quality parenting information and people are pleased to see it displayed in this public way... and it’s gratifying knowing it will be read thousands of times! Advancing Parenting is a Camarillo, CA nonprofit. Visit www.advancingparenting.org to request this free resource. Use a computer. Our website is not optimized for phones. Please share!
I'd like to share a rather unusual and free resource for promoting positive childhood experiences and preventing adverse childhood experiences...parenting norms bumper stickers. Advancing Parenting, a Camarillo, CA nonprofit, produces parenting norms bumper stickers and makes them available at no cost to schools, businesses, organizations, clinics, and individuals. There are fifty-one in a set and each bumper sticker communicates a parenting behavior or practice generally recognized as supporting the healthy development of children. Just one will be read thousands of times! Bumper stickers are a unique and powerful way for friends, neighbors, and community members to share parenting wisdom. At stoplights drivers and passengers point, smile, and nod. Conversations begin and often a phone is used to take a photo of the sticker right at the stoplight. Presumably, they are being shared on social media. It's wonderful to see! Sets of the stickers can be put in holders and placed on counters and tables so folks can select one or more for their cars.
