DARE Report by Officer Chad Gillen Combating media influences This week in D.A.R.E. your student learned how the media can influence the way people think, feel and act about drug use and violence. Your child learned that the media often targets young people to sell their products.
Listed below are several topics for discussion to help you reinforce what your child learned:
* While watching TV with your child, ask them to name the different media message techniques that are being used.
* Why would the media sometimes slant the truth about products?
Please feel free to contact me if you wish to attend your child's D.A.R.E. class: Officer Chad J. Gillen, Vermillion Police Department, phone 677-7070.
