I Will Be A Parent

Condoning or encouraging your teens to drink sets the wrong example for them and our community. Providing a safe, alcohol-free space for teens is something we can all share.

Why does it matter?

  • Alcohol affects the developing teen brain and can have life-long consequences.

  • Teens are more likely to drink if their parents condone the behavior.

  • Teens who start drinking alcohol before the age of 15 are five times more likely to develop alcohol abuse or dependence than people who first used alcohol at age 21 or older.

  • If underage drinking takes place on your property, you can be held legally responsible for what happens at or after the party, even if you didn’t buy the alcohol.

 

Let’s keep our teens and our community safe! What can you do? Take the “I WILL BE A PARENT” promise.

Because the teen brain is prone to adiction
Because the teen brain is likely to forget
Because the teen brain is hard-wired to take risks

Thank you for taking the promise with us!
