Because we are in the midst of prom and graduation season, your local Personal & Family Counseling Services organization is reminding area residents that when it comes to underage drinking, parents who host lose the most.
Make Cedar Point Your Summer Destination
What parents should know:
-As a parent, you cannot give alcohol to your teen’s friends under the age of 21 under any circumstance, even in your own home, even with their parent’s permission.
-You cannot knowingly allow a person under 21, other than your own child, to remain in your home or on your property while consuming or possessing alcohol.
If you break the law:
-You can face a maximum sentence of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
-Others can sue you if you give alcohol to anyone under 21 and they, in turn, hurt someone or damage property.
-Law enforcement can confiscate any alcohol, money, or property used in committing the offense.
Things you can do as a parent:
-Refuse to supply alcohol to anyone under 21.
-Be at home when your teen has a party.
-Make sure alcohol is not brought into your home or property by your teen’s friends.
-Talk to other parents about not providing alcohol at events your child will be attending.
-Create alcohol-free opportunities and activities in your home so teens will feel welcome.
-Report underage drinking to local law enforcement.
Underage drinking facts:
-29% of parents and teens know of parents who host teen alcohol parties.
-25% of teens attended a party where alcohol was served to underage youth in the past two months, while parents thought the number was closer to 15%.
-Every day, 5,400 young people under 16 have their first drink of alcohol.
-Studies reveal alcohol consumption by adolescents results in brain damage – possibly permanent – and impairs intellectual development.
-Children who are drinking alcohol by 7th grade are more likely to report academic problems, substance abuse, and delinquent behavior in both middle and high school. By young adulthood, early alcohol use was associated with employment problems.
Talking to kids about alcohol:
-Show you disapprove of underage drinking.
-Show you care about your child’s happiness and well being.
-Show you are a good source of information about alcohol.
-Show you are paying attention and you’ll notice if your child drinks.
-Build your child’s skills and strategies for avoiding underage drinking.
-Keep it low-key. Don’t worry…you don’t have to get everything across in one talk. Many small talks are better.
Talk to your kids about drugs, too:
-Be careful what you say.
-Be careful how you say it.
-Know the facts about drugs, alcohol, and tobacco.
-Be respectful and genuine.
-They talk, you listen.
-Scare tactics don’t work.
-Control your emotions.
-Take advantage of teachable moments.
