How to help your kids adapt to Las Vegas after moving there from Texas

  • How to explain escort ads and a billboard with almost naked bodies – Escort-ads are all over Vegas, and as a parent do not try to be hasty and try to prevent questions about that. Let the child ask you some questions about the surrounding, make sure to answer them properly. Older children will ask a more specific question. This is time to explain to them what that ad is for, and this is the moment to reinforce family values.
  • How to address that drugs are and alcohols are popularized in society – If the child asks you about it, don’t be judgmental, that will scare and repel him. About the drugs, you should have some long talks. Don’t make threats or it will encourage children to shut themselves in. Try to have an honest conversation, and let your child ask and talk about it. If this does not help, try professionals, licensed counselors.
  • Gambling and its addiction – And last but not least, we have gambling, and the town built on that. Always talk to your child in the most honest way. Early intervention is a key to success here.
