This resource can help parents substantially reduce the chance that their child will drink before the age of 21. Alcohol is the drug most commonly used by youth— more than all other illicit drugs combined. MADD’s Power of Parents handbooks are based on the latest research by Robert Turrisi, PhD, which when followed have shown up to a 30% reduction in underage drinking. The research-based principles and materials are not only useful to help parents have the critical discussions about alcohol with their children— from middle schoolers through college age—but can also be applied when having discussions about all other drugs. By talking to children early and often, parents can prevent dangerous and deadly consequences from alcohol and other drugs. These intentional, ongoing and life-changing conversations will help keep youth, families and entire communities healthy and safe. Together we can create a future of No More Victims®.
