Families in Action – April 1, 2013

Cary and Bob began the show by explain the various services that the community offers. One of the best things parents can do is get the information about what a teen goes through before your child is actually a teenager.

Any information that is out there will help out and get you in better touch with your child.

“Knowledge is power, it really is,” Quashen said,

April is alcohol awareness month and it is the 27th year but the problem is old as time. We will be talking about abuse and misuse of alcohol all month. Today we will be discussing teenage drinking.

In this country everyday, 7,000 kids under the age of 16 take their first drink. It used to be the average age when someone started drinking was 15 and now it dropped to 12.

National statistics say that when people have an alcohol problem they started drinking when they were 9 to 12.

One question I ask is how do they get away with it where are the parents at. Most times the parents think it’s cute to give the child a sip of beer. But by doing that you are teaching your kids that alcohol isn’t bad and think it is okay to drink.

People often classify alcohol different from other substances because of the legality of it but it is one of the most dangerous drugs out there,

The number one place where kids drink are when they are at a party with no supervision. That is just a prescription for disaster.

What can you do to prepare for that?

Just talk with your kids and spend time with them and know who their friends are. Their is a lack of supervision out there and lack of spending time with your kids.

Hear all of the statistics by listening to the podcast…
