(HealthDay News) -- As teens and children re-enter the classroom after summer vacation, it's time for parents and teachers to instill healthy behaviors that should last into adulthood.
That means discouraging alcohol use, drug use and violence, which studies have associated with lower grades, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.
Here are the agency's suggestions for parents:
- Talk openly with your child about healthy, respectful relationships.
- Communicate clearly with your child about sex.
- Provide facts about ways to prevent HIV, STDs and pregnancy.
- Teach your child about the importance of an open, honest association with a health care provider.
