The best way to keep your kid from drinking?

Start simply--just talk about it

 

If your child is aged 8-20, they’re curious about and at risk for using alcohol. Almost 1 in 4 Idaho high school students have had a drink in the last 30 days,1 and almost 15% say they’ve had alcohol (other than a few sips) before age 13.
 

Idaho’s BeTheParents.org encourages you to protect your child from consequences of underage drinking, like unplanned and unwanted sexual activity, brain impairment, and even death. If you’d like your child to live a happier, healthier life, learn the risks of underage drinking and find out how you can prevent your child from using alcohol.

What does your child love to do?

Kids who are actively engaged in something they love benefit from increased self-esteem, more success in school, and healthier peer relationships. Plus, they’re more likely to spend their time and energy on their favorite activity than on negative behaviors like underage drinking. Help your child find and pursue their passion! As a first step, get inspired by these Idaho teens who are going after their dreams.
