Description

With so many drugs available to young people these days, you may wonder, “Why develop a booklet about helping kids avoid alcohol?” Alcohol is a drug, as surely as cocaine and marijuana. It’s also illegal to drink under the age of 21. And it’s dangerous.

Kids who drink are more likely to:

• Be victims of violent crime.

• Have serious problems in school.

• Be involved in drinking-related traffic crashes.

This guide is geared to parents and guardians of young people ages 10 to 14. Keep in mind that the suggestions on the following pages are just that: suggestions. Trust your instincts. Choose ideas that you are comfortable with, and use your own style in carrying out the approaches you find useful. Your child looks to you for guidance and support in making life decisions—including the decision not to use alcohol.
