"Talk They Hear You" Campaign

What You Can Do:

  • Be a positive adult role model
  • Be aware of risk factors
  • Support your kids and give them space to grow
  • Be prepared. Your child may become curious about alcohol; he or she may turn to you for answers and advice
  • Use “natural” opportunities, such as dinner time or while doing chores, to start honest conversation about drinking
  • Work with schools, communities, and civic leaders to protect children from underage alcohol use.
