Walking The Kingdom Episode #5
Hosted by: Roger Landry (TLB) – With TLB’s very own Steve Cook (Walking the Kingdom) & Pete Dwan (Drug Counselor & Educator)
No sane person has the goal of getting their kids or Grand-kids hooked on Drugs but many people worry what they can do about it. Some feel they don’t know enough about the subject to talk to their little ones about drugs. Others feel that scaring them or threatening them will do the Trick. Some even think their kids will work it out for themselves and don’t even broach the subject. All told it is a very real problem that faces our Children.
Steve Cook is taking on a huge challenge to help every parent on the Planet keep their kids away for drugs. Walk The Kingdom is a campaign that will take him around 9 months to complete and will require him to walk up to 20 miles a day to achieve the overall target of over 4000 Miles to cover the entire coastline of the UK mainland. Steve, who is in his SIXTIES, wants to raise money and awareness so that no child misses out on what he feels is Vital information to keep our kids drug free. The information he’s talking about is put across to kids from a very unlikely source.
Steve is over 650 miles into his walk as this show airs.
Each week on this show we will be hearing from Steve out on the coastline road, and Pete who will be giving key information you need to keep your kids drug free.

Bringing children up in today’s society any parent has a least a few concerns for their child. Will they be successful , will they get married, have kids, earn enough to do what they want in life and most of all will they be happy. Any one with kids growing up in today’s world does have a least one worry in common.
How can I stop my child from getting in with the wrong crowd , what if someone try’s to get to my child and get them involved , how can I protect them , keep them safe and how can I discuss drugs with them so they will listen and steer clear of the whole drug problem. How young is too young?
Well after delivering Drug Awareness talks for the last 10 years to over 79,000 kids I can honestly say with hand on heart there is a solution and I believe that ages from 9-11 yrs is the ideal age to discuss this as they are right at the age where they are making choices of what they think is cool and who they want to aspire to be like.
Your child is bright, alert and totally able to make great decisions for themselves, as long as they have some True information to work from. If you think scaring them, saying whole heartedly “Just Say No” without giving them some true facts to work off to say why say no to drugs, I believe you are spinning the wheel and hoping that they won’t.
The talks give young people an undercut to all the false information they might be fed through the multitude of channels they receive information on today.
They will learn …
What is a drug?
How the body deals with a poison.
How the body becomes addicted to a drug. What Alcohol actually is and why we don’t think of it as a drug.
How the central nervous system works in three stages with drugs.
How setting goals and putting effort in can get you a natural high.
How to see there is lots of info and it’s not all true.
The unpredictability of drugs.
I have thousands of testimonials from children,teachers and parents saying this is what they need and want. Just go to www.mypinkbugatti.com,watch a couple of the modules and get your self the book to educate your child yourself or the DVD of the entire talk and sit and watch it with your kids. Don’t leave it to chance.
There is a Grandad, Steve Cook, who feels that strongly about it that he’s walking over 4,000 miles around the entire coastline of the UK . He says he’s doing this because he doesn’t fell it’s fair that any child misses out on this crucial information.
