Why it’s vital to have the ‘alcohol and parties’ discussion now

Too often parents wait until it is too late before setting rules and boundaries around alcohol and parties. Put simply, if you haven’t had a discussion with your child about this area by the beginning of Year 9, at the latest, you are almost certainly going to have problems in the future. Using the most recent data on the use of alcohol by school-based young people, this presentation will discuss the growing evidence on the risks associated with this practice. There will also be a close examination of the positive influence that parents can have on their child’s drinking behaviour, as well as some of the barriers that they may face during adolescence. It aims to empower parents with a positive message and assist them in having open and honest family discussions in this complex area.

Parents are encouraged to attend this evening which will answer some of the most commonly asked questions about alcohol and drugs. Regardless of the age of your children, you will benefit from this presentation.
