The spoken text of the video is as follows:
As parents, we want our kids to grow up safe, happy, and healthy. We want them to be responsible, to make good choices, and to achieve their goals.
But the truth is, we won't always be there to protect them. So we equip our kids to make good decisions.
When it comes to drugs and drug abuse, there's the promise and there's the reality. If you've ever felt the pressure to use drugs, you've probably heard the promise. Some promises are specific to a drug: "Meth can help you lose weight" or "Steroids will make you a better athlete." Other promises are vague: "Getting high will help you relax." Watch this animated video to learn more about the promise and reality of drug use and abuse.
