Melania Trump unveils 'Be Best' initiative to help kids

Monday's announcement is set for the Rose Garden.

"Mrs. Trump wants to help the following generation by developing change as a result of awareness on a variety of issues that impact children".

Melania Trump will announce her eagerly awaited formal platform on Monday during a Rose Garden event, almost 16 months into her tenure as US First Lady, the media reported.

The first lady has already made cyber-bullying prevention a priority during her tenure as well as the focusing on effects of opioid abuse on newborns, tying in to the federal response to the opioid epidemic.

"Too often it's used in negative ways", she said.

She also brought focus to the deadly impact opioid addiction has on young children and infants, touching on her past participation in drug addiction roundtables and visits to local treatment facilities. They have a son, 12-year-old Barron, and Melania Trump has expressed an interest in helping children through numerous school and hospital visits.

This has the potential to be the warmest air mass this region has seen since September of a year ago . It does look fairly low for Central Illinois Wednesday, as most of the activity will be to our west.

In March, the first lady hosted representatives of the major online and social media companies at the White House to discuss cyberbullying and internet safety.

The first lady said she will continue to speak with leaders in the technology industry about children's social media habits, work with those fighting drug addiction and to travel and speak to children.

"This is something that is extremely important to the first lady", Sanders replies. Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" was unveiled 11 months after becoming first lady, in February 2010 and Laura Bush launched "Ready to Read, Ready to Learn", in July of her first year as first lady.

By promoting values such as healthy living, encouragement, kindness, and respect, parents, teachers, and other adults can help prepare children for their futures.

The goal is to encourage children to BE BEST in their individual paths in life, and teach them about the importance of social, emotional, and physical health.

The first lady said it was the responsibility of adults to help support children as they grow to become productive members of society and the global community. Trump said the "Be Best" campaign will help to support families and children affected by the opioid epidemic, reduce the stigma of drug addiction across the country and bring awareness to programs and places now serving the issue like Lily's Place and the Cincinnati Children's hospital.
