As schools begin to integrate student activities back into their schedules, we are excited to bring you this year's Homecoming Party Parent Toolkit. Parties can be a great way for teens to celebrate. Unfortunately, hosting or going to a party often includes other activities that could prove harmful to teens. In fact, of teens who drink in our community, 70% report that they obtained the alcohol from social sources, such as at a party, from their older sibling, or from a friend. With that being said, the majority of students in our community do NOT drink alcohol. Research has shown that the #1 influence on whether teens decide to drink alcohol is their parents. The best way you can prevent your child from drinking is to set clear, specific rules and give clear, non-use messages. Even though it may not seem like it, your child is listening. For lots of other ways to keep your teen safe, download this toolkit.
