TALKING ABOUT ALCOHOL
If you need help talking with your parents and/or a trusted adult about alcohol, here are some tips: • Be honest about your concerns. Ask for support to develop a safe way out of a dangerous situation. • Respect their opinions. You don’t have to agree with them, but it’s important to try and see things from their point of view. • Don’t let conversations about drinking get sidetracked by other issues or old arguments. If the discussion doesn’t go the way you hoped, try again. • Talking openly about alcohol can build trust and may be rewarded with gaining more privileges and independence. Now you know the real story about teen drinking and how to protect yourself and your friends. Write your own story. Your future is worth it!
