What You Can Do...

  • Talk to your kids about K2. Ask them if they know what K2 is, then really listen to their response. Even if you are told they know what it is, continue the dialogue and ask a few more probing questions to ensure they realize how unpredictable and dangerous it is. Share what you know about K2. Find out if any of their friends, kids they know or they have heard of anyone using it. Regardless of what you hear, remain calm and remember to breathe. Building a level of trust with your child so they feel comfortable talking to you without worrying about an outburst or not being heard, is important.

    When having a conversation, remember to keep it age-appropriate. Because some of the K2/Spice packaging is very appealing to kids (i.e. Scooby Doo on it ), it is important to consider having a conversation with elementary school-age children, so they know not to eat (or smoke) any of these substances. You can make this decision based on your situation (for example, do you have older children in your home or by whom your child(ren) may be in contact with).

    A great resource for having conversations with your kids is: How to Be A Parent, Not A Pal is another helpful toolkit. Check the Resource tab of the website for more info.
