This scares me as I think back to some of the stories we have heard about students in high school and college. All things in moderation. This we must address head on.
Is there a family history of substance or alcohol abuse? Does your child know about it?
Do we understand the impact of lowered inhibitions on our decision making? How can your child hear it?
Can students receive and process these messages? From whom?
Best quote from this post:
What is most important is that parent find ways to have those conversations, and even to welcome them. “Anything you say is going to be better than not saying anything,” Dr. Siqueira said. Think of it as a different kind of drinking game: Every time a character on television picks up a drink, every time you see a beer commercial, every time there is a news segment focused on alcohol, you talk.
