Free Workshop for Parents

Power of Parents, It’s Your Influence™

Talking to your Teens about Alcohol
A free 30 minute workshop for parents of teens
Registrants will receive a free parent handbook!
Did you know?
Teen alcohol use kills about 6,000 people a year, more than all illegal drugs combined
Compared with non-drinking classmates, teens that drink alcohol are more likely to:
o Die in a car crash
o Get pregnant
o Flunk out of school
o Be sexually assaulted
o Become an alcoholic later in life
o Take their own lives through suicide
Three out of every four kids say their parents are the leading influence on their decisions about drinking
Kids who are more connected to their parents are less likely to use alcohol or other drugs
Start talking- it could be the best gift you’ve ever given!
