Have "The Talk" With Your Kids!

Do you struggle with what you should say to your kids regarding underage drinking? Do you worry that drinking and driving may be an occurrence that is common for kids your children's age? As someone who has lost family to the tragedy of drinking and driving, I can't tell you how much this conversation needs to take place -- no matter how awkward or difficult.

Thanks to a new website -- www.thepowerofparents.org -- there is a whole new world of information at your fingertips, readily available for parents to use when looking for ways to have "the talk" with their kids. Some of the things I especially love about this site and the places it links to include:
  • Parents Blog - while new, it's off to a great start, with statistics and ideas for engaging kids early and keeping them safe.
  • Ask the Expert - get answers to your questions NOW!
  • Videos - these eye-opening quick clips will have you thinking and your kids talking.
Right now, the site is a little fresh, which means that most of the information will apply to H.S. students. But don't worry! There are resources for younger kids coming soon!
