#3 Teaching Teens to Drink Responsibly…

Lara Thompson —

Is it a good idea? This week we dive into alcohol and the effect it has on teenagers. We’ve also included some questions you can ask your teen if they are going to a party to help make a plan.

Take a screenshot of the party questions so you've got them on hand for later. You can also check out The Plan website for more information here. 

Next week's article is all about hosting a party and how to keep it legal.
