It’s that time of year again for proms, parties and graduations. Here is a guide that may be of interest to parents and teens. It is called, “Have the Time of Your Life: Celebrate Responsibly.” This guide was produced by KRP and distributed by the NIE Institute.
Regardless of the occasion, the temptation to drink is powerful for teens. But it’s also illegal and dangerous if you’re under the age of 21. Learning about the risks of underage drinking and how to resist the temptation may be the only defense you have. That’s what this special guide is all about – helping teens confront the temptation head on and providing the information they need to make the right choices.
In recognition of Red Ribbon week, I’d like to share this NIE guide titled, “Teen Drinking: Too Much, Too Soon, Too Risky” from the NIE Institute. It looks at teens and alcohol, understanding alcohol, what’s in a drink, what happens when you drink, alcoholism and abuse and why teens drink.
