Power of Parents

Did you know that teen alcohol use is responsible for more deaths and injuries among youth than all other illegal drugs combined?

It is important that parents know what the signs are of a teen that is using drugs or alcohol. It is also extremely important that parents talk with their teens about not only underage drinking, but also the dangers and consequences of drinking and driving.


MADD – Mothers Agains Drunk Driving

Mother Against Drunk Driving’s “Power of Parents” middle school and high school handbooks provide tools to have intentional and ongoing conversations about alcohol, set family rules, and enforce consequences. It also details how to Young brains are still developing into the early 20’s. By reading these handbooks and following the guidelines, parents can substantially reduce the chance that their son or daughter will drink and suffer life-altering consequences before the age of 21.
“My daughter Olivia didn’t wake up one day desiring to be an alcoholic and addict and lose her life at 21. That came about from the friends and choices she made,” said a mother who lost her daughter due to alcohol. To read Olivia’s story, sign up for a free Mother Against Drunk Driving “Power of Parents” handbook here.
