Being a parent is hard work, probably the hardest job you’ll ever take on. New trends and substances emerge daily that threaten the safety and wellbeing of our children. There is good news though. You can help!
Parents have the greatest influence on whether their children will drink or use drugs. Setting clear rules against drinking, consistently enforcing those rules, and monitoring your child’s behavior all help to reduce the likelihood of underage drinking. It’s never too early or too late to change how your child feels about alcohol. With tools and resources, we can help parents talk to their children about the dangers of underage drinking and the importance of refusing to provide alcohol to minors.
