Prom Season and Drinking and Driving

Parents do matter.

It’s important to talk with your teens about alcohol, discuss rules, and if the rules are broken, then implement consequences. Show your teens that you care about them by being interested in what they are doing, and with whom they spend their time. This will open the path of communication and maybe your children will listen when you talk to them about more important things, like drinking and driving.

During prom season remember that your role and influence as a parent are crucial.

Be a positive role model.
