The latest news and updates from MADD Southwest Florida

As students celebrate spring break, prom and graduation during the next few months, Mothers Against Drunk Driving ® (MADD) and National Presenting Sponsor Nationwide ® are equipping parents with the resources they need to talk with their teens about the risks of underage drinking and drug use. MADD ’ s Power of Parents ® program encourages parents to talk to their teens about alcohol and other drugs. Research shows 74 percent of teens say their parents are the biggest influence on their decisions related to drinking. Parents should start talking as early as 8 years of age, and continue talking often. When students understand the dangers of underage drinking and use of other drugs, they are more motivated to engage in health-promoting behaviors and avoid unhealthy behaviors, like underage drinking and drug. -continued on page 2 Keep Talking: MADD's Power of Parents
