Alcohol remains the number one drug of choice among the nation’s youth. The Drug Free Action Alliance reports that April is Alcohol Awareness Month, and as such parents can use that time for help their kids understand the impacts of alcohol. They recommend parents listen to their kids before they talk, to ask open-ended questions, be involved in their kids lives, and to set expectations, limits and consequences for their children.
Building positive relationships with kids takes time but being open about concerns and engaging in a positive dialogue when it comes to alcohol, the Alliance notes goes a long way to avoiding issues down the road. The earlier you talk to you kids and establish a dialogue, the better the chances to avoid issues.
